DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will return for its fifth season under the NASCAR banner next year, with the series traveling to 12 tracks in five Canadian provinces.

The 2011 campaign begins May 28 at Mosport (Ontario) Speedway. It will be the first time the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series opens its season at the half-mile oval.

The season’s second date takes the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series to a new venue — Circuit ICAR on the grounds of Montreal’s Mirabel Airport. The 1.86-mile road course is located on the former passenger terminal’s apron.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Canadian Tire Series will share Montreal’s legendary Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with the NASCAR Nationwide Series. This year the race is scheduled for Aug. 20. Additionally, a date at Toronto’s Exhibition Place is set for July 9 as part of the IZOD IndyCar Series Honda Indy Toronto.

The annual swing through Western Canada will include stops at Motoplex Speedway in Vernon, British Columbia, July 23 and Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, July 27.

Another popular date is the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres in Quebec, which is on tap for Aug. 6-7. The season will close at Kawartha Speedway, a .375-mile oval near Peterborough, Ontario, Sept. 24.

D.J. Kennington is the 2010 series champion.
