Mohawk NASCAR driver

Mohawk Race Car Driver Dexter StaceyDexter Stacey was going 162 miles on the track in the city of Trois-Rivieres (Three Rivers), between Montreal and Quebec City, in a NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event when he encountered a small problem—a wall. Thankfully, the young Mohawk racer survived, and has gone on to become a promising contender to reach the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for the WJS Motorsports company that sponsors him. “My dream is to drive in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the highest league,” Dexter told us. So far he’s off to a good start. The ultimate goal, however, isn’t just to qualify for NASCAR’s elite racing series, it’s to become the first aboriginal or Native driver to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

The Mohawk owned and operated company, located in Kahnawake, 9.3 mile south of Montreal, supports and promotes drivers in the Dirt Modified, Ice Racing, Karting and the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. For the past 30-years, the company has sponsored and promoted drivers, but Stacey appears to be their best shot at getting to the highest level of NASCAR.
