Despite all its efforts, NASCAR’s ambitions to go worldwide struck a nerve when the Montreal aspirations went down in flames. The organization is in fact striving towards the goal of showcasing its “aggressive style” of racing on a world stage and is doing everything in its power to bring the eyes to stock car racing.

The street race in Chicago and the well-received Garage 56 debut at Le Mans were a step closer to the organization’s plans to cross borders, as we know. However, the sanctioning body hit a dead end when its Montreal ambitions failed to materialize, prompting NASCAR to re-strategize its global attack.

Initially, it announced the renaming of NASCAR Pinty’s series to NASCAR Canada Series along with other changes. While this too isn’t going in the right direction, as per NASCAR pundits, many others lent their voices to talk about it. This brings us to Dale Earnhardt Jr‘s take on solving NASCAR’s expansion plan disappointment.

Dale Earnhardt Jr chimes in with the solution to NASCAR’s predicament

With the arrival of F1 in Vegas, discussions started to pop up around NASCAR’s expansion plans. While the open-wheel extravaganza brought a new light, debuting at the Vegas strip, NASCAR executed it with perfection months before at the Windy City, giving the community a taste of Stock Car racing in a street layout.

But the discussions never subsided as the recent NASCAR moves got the ball rolling with the organization making moves to revamp its Canadian series, in an effort to give it a fresh breath of air. This in turn got the enthusiasts here in the States talking with NASCAR journalist Adam Stern, who was tweeting out the recent updates.

The JR Motorsports co-owner briefed his take to nothing more than 7 words, hinting at a solution when he wrote, “Maybe that’s the answer to their situation.” In a nutshell, Weaver’s take on the matter is pretty much not to alter the series, but Dale Jr believes the Canadian platform might be the perfect stage for trying out a uniform world model.

NASCAR Canada follows the Cup Series model

The Montreal verdict was certainly not what the fans, or the organization expected it to be. After several rounds of close talks, both the sanctioning body and the city officials never came into an accord, drowning fans’ anticipation and killing it for them. But that doesn’t mean everything is said and done.

Despite the letdown, NASCAR is planning a revamp of its Canadian Series. Last week, NASCAR announced it was changing the name of its Canadian regional league from the Pinty’s Series to the NASCAR Canada Series, moving away from a title sponsor model there as the Cup Series has also done here in the States.
