The Chevrolet Silverado 250 is a NASCAR-sanctioned stock car race, held at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport) as part of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series tour, first held in 2013.

History[edit]

The first race held on a road course by the Camping World Truck Series in 13 years,[1] it was announced that the race would be held starting in 2013, on Labor Day weekend, in November 2012, replacing the previous NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve as NASCAR's annual event held in Canada.[2] In April 2013, it was announced that the race would be sponsored by General Motors Canada, becoming the Chevy Silverado 250.[3]

The inaugural event, run September 1, 2013, saw James Buescher win the pole at a speed of 109.189 miles per hour (175.723 km/h);[4] Ty Dillon led the most laps in the race before contact between him and Chase Elliott at White's Corner coming to the checkered flag sent Dillon into a tire barrier.[5] Dillon promised that "next week he won't finish the race" but he didn't pursue any payback eventually. In 2014 Ryan Blaney battled German Quiroga with Blaney beating Quiroga in a photo-finish.
