The inaugural Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is the 14th race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule.

Located less than one hour east of Toronto, the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) is a 910-acre, multi-track facility. It opened in 1961. The facility was formerly known as Mosport International Raceway.

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is one of only two race tracks to have hosted Formula One, IndyCar, FIA World Endurance Championship and Can-Am races. The other is Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y.

The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series has been competing at this track three times each year since 2007.

CTMP is co-owned by Ron Fellows, who is no stranger to NASCAR racing. Fellows has won six times in NASCAR national series competition, including twice in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (both at Watkins Glen).

This will be the first time the Truck Series runs on a road course since June 2000 at Watkins Glen. It's also the first time the series will compete in Canada.

CTMP is the second new venue on this year's truck schedule. The series raced at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio last month. Austin Dillon won the inaugural event there.

Ron Hornaday Jr. is the only full-time driver in the series that has previously competed in a truck race at a road course. Three of Hornaday's 51 career victories in trucks have come on road courses -- Topeka's Heartland Park in Kansas (1995), Sonoma Raceway ('95) and Watkins Glen ('96). His most recent road course event in the series was in 1999 at Watkins Glen.

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series competitors Martin Roy and Alex Guenette will both attempt to qualify for the truck race this weekend in their native country.

The next race is the Sept. 8 Iowa 200 at Iowa Speedway. Ryan Blaney won last year's event there.
