Project 365 – Day 231: NASCAR comes to Montreal

August 18 2012

This is the 6th year that NASCAR has rolled into Montreal for the annual racing event held at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit on Ile Notre-Dame.

Like when the Formula 1 hits town earlier in the summer, rue Crescent is closed to traffic and becomes the site of a multi-day street party. So even for people like me who don’t have tickets to the race you can still soak up a little NASCAR buzz. The NASCAR week though is no match to the vibe and parties that accompanies the F1. Still, it’s a good draw for tourism and the local business economy :-)
