ST. CATHERINES, ON — official release — The 2014 Bicknell Racing Products (BRP) CanAm Series started with a series weekly event at Woodhull Raceway last week. It was a perfect start for John Waters and his bid to repeat as the Series champion. Waters raced his Dale LeBarron’s CRS Corvette to victory in that event.

“It was a good start, but only a start in what will be a challenging year. The new point structure presents a different challenge. It will be the same for everyone so it is fair, but change is always something that racers fear, shared Waters from his race car shop in Whitesville, NY.

“We really want to repeat as the BRP Champion and the best way to earn that big check and the big trophy is to win as many races, both weekly and tour events, as possible. Our plan is to race weekly at Freedom (Speedway) on Fridays and Woodhull (Raceway) on Saturday as often as we can. We will run all of the BRP tour events and hope that our weekly program gains us enough points for the championship. We may miss a few weekly events when we are racing the crate car.”

The new point structure Waters referenced was announced earlier this year. There is now more emphasis on home track points and less on tour event points. Track points from Freedom Speedway, Raceway 5, and Woodhull Raceway will be normalized on September 14 with each track champion earning 1000 points, each runner-up earns 980 points, and a 10 point drop per position. The track where the driver earns the most points becomes his home track. Points earned in series tour events will be added to home track points to establish total series points for the 2014 championship.

BRP CanAm Series weekly events start at Raceway 5 and Freedom Raceway in May.

The 2014 BRP CanAm tour program begins at Little Valley Speedway on Sunday May 25.
