NAPA Auto Parts 200

The NAPA Auto Parts 200 Presented by Dodge (French title: NAPA Pièces d'auto 200 présenté par Dodge) was a NASCAR Nationwide Series race that took place at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from 2007 to 2012. It took place in August, replacing the Champ Car World Series and Atlantic Championship Grand Prix of Montreal. The Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series and NASCAR Canadian Tire Series have held a support race in every edition, the latter race being called NAPA Autopro 100 and the former having changed its name every season.

The inaugural 2007 race was the first major NASCAR (as opposed to CASCAR or NASCAR Canadian Tire Series) race in Canada in several decades. The 2008 race was the first official NASCAR points race from one of NASCAR's top three series to utilize rain tires and windshield wipers.

The last race was in 2012 after the track promoter and NASCAR could not come to an agreement for the 2013 season.

Famous quotes containing the word parts:

    We have seen that men are learning that work, productivity, and marriage may be very important parts of life, but they are not its whole cloth. The rest of the fabric is made of nurturing relationships, especially those with children—relationships which are intimate, trusting, humane, complex, and full of care.
    Kyle D. Pruett (20th century)
