Marc-Antoine Camirand (St. Leonard d'Aston, Québec)

How long have you been racing and what was the first race you competed in and what kind of car did you drive?

I started racing in go-karts when I was 8 years old. It's always fun to race karts and after that I started racing Formula 1600 open wheelers and the I moved to endurance racing.

How long have you been competing in the NASCAR Pinty's Series?

This is my fourth season and I raced full-time in 2015. I've been racing part-time since then. 

What made you decide to compete in the NPS?

It's a very competitive series with drivers like [Andrew] Ranger, [Alex] Tagliani and its the highest form of racing in Canada right now.

What makes being a part of the NPS special to you?

I love driving on the road courses and it's alwyas fun to race against the best.

How have your fans responded to you being a part of NASCAR in Canada?

The fans love watching me race in this series. I live close to Trois-Rivières and they floow the series.

What or where is your favorite track on the schedule?

I do like the Grand Prix of Trois-Rivières and I have the most wins there in all types of cars.

Do you have any hobbies outside of racing?

I like to play golf in the summer and love to play ice hockey in the winter.

If you weren't a race car driver, what do you think you would do instead of racing for a career?

Good question, really good question. I guess I would work with my dad in prepping cars and without racing.

Who has been the biggest influence in your life and/or racing career?

Greg Moore. I was 16 at that time and he was a good mentor to me and he helped me a lot for sure.

Tell me something about you that would surprise your fans?

We work so hard on the car and I when I can I love spending time with my kid.
