Milverton, ON – Thursday, July 14, 2022 – Kyle Steckly is set to make his NASCAR Pinty’s Series debut with 22 Racing during the series’ Western swing in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The 17-year-old resident of Milverton, Ontario has an extensive resume behind the wheel, with experience racing Micro Sprints, Junior Late Models, Mini Stocks, and most recently Pro Late Models. Under the guidance of his father, four-time NASCAR Pinty’s Series Champion Scott Steckly, Kyle feels that he is now ready to make the next step in his racing career.
The launch of Steckly’s NASCAR Pinty’s Series career will have continuing support from APC Auto Parts Centres and CANUSA as well as all of their supporters, and long-time 22 Racing sponsors AW Millwrights and Erb Transport who have played a key role in Kyle’s racing journey. Additionally, Kyle will be bringing on new sponsor WingN’It Restaurants. WingN’It restaurants can be found all across Canada, featuring a wide variety of delicious food and specializing in chicken wings.
Without the support and commitment from Steckly’s numerous sponsors, his venture into this highly competitive division would not be possible.
“I’m really happy to carry over the partnership with APC Auto Parts Centres and CANUSA to the Pinty’s Series and excited to create a new relationship with WingN’It Restaurants. I’m really thankful for all of my sponsors’ support in making this opportunity possible,” says Steckly.
In 2021, Steckly made a name for himself being crowned the Flamboro Speedway Pro Late Model Champion. In the 2022 Delaware Weekly Series and APC United Late Model Series Steckly has already amassed 1 win and 6 top-five finishes. Being no stranger to oval tracks, Steckly’s experience and adaptability is sure to come into play during this new adventure.
Kyle Steckly will be joining Alex Tagliani and Treyten Lapcevich in the 22 Racing paddock out in Saskatoon. Bringing back his father’s famed No. 22, Kyle will be driving the No. 22 APC Auto Parts Centres / CANUSA / WingN’It Chevrolet Camaro.
“I’m really looking forward to making my NASCAR Pinty’s Series debut with 22 Racing at Sutherland Automotive Speedway. I’ve been around Pinty’s cars all my life so I’m excited to get the opportunity to race one myself. Hopefully we can make a couple more starts in the 2022 season,” says Steckly.
In the start of what is sure to be a long NASCAR Pinty’s Series racing career, Kyle is looking for some solid finishes from the double Leland 125s at Sutherland Automotive Speedway’s ⅜ mile paved oval in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. This double-header takes place on Wednesday, July 27th at 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. EST, and can be watched LIVE on TSN.ca.
