Louis-Philippe Dumoulin and the #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare team are back on track for a three-race weekend on August 28 and 29. On Saturday, they will be at the ICAR road course for the Lafleur 75 and on Sunday, on the oval at the Autodrome Chaudière for the Canadian Tire 150 and the Budweiser 150. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin comes to ICAR after a convincing start to the season as he is in third place in the 2021 NASCAR Pinty's Championship points race.

The man who started his career and won several races and championships on road courses feels at home on the ICAR road course. Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has evolved since his NASCAR Canada debut in 2009 and has now had great success on oval tracks, where his analytical approach and self-discipline allow him to get the most out of his #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare car.

"Three races, two tracks, one on a road course and two on an oval, make for a vitally important weekend for the championship. For ICAR, the set-up we used at Trois-Rivières Grand Prix will work just as well on this track and we are looking forward to it. In addition, we will be able to take advantage of the lessons learned in past events on the small oval of the Autodrome Chaudière, as we have obtained good results there in the past. After these three events, we will be at the halfway point of the season and we are ready to make the most of this intense weekend", underlines the man who was inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame last fall.
