It’s… oval time for Thomas Krasonis!

The time for this year’s first oval race at NASCAR Euro Whelen has arrived! And of course, Thomas Krasonis is all set to meet the big challenge of driving in something so different from what we are used to in Europe!

The first Greek professional racing driver is already in Venray, the Netherlands, where the fourth race weekend of this season’s EuroNASCAR will take place.

The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series is celebrating its return to Venray, the only small track in the Netherlands that last hosted a EuroNASCAR race in 2019, producing exciting and spectacular wheel-to-wheel battles on corners with a banking of up to 25 degrees.

Raceway Venray is a typical small half-mile track, based on US NASCAR ovals such as Bristol or Martinsville. The track is built with a progressive 25-degree banking and two racing lines that will make both races highly spectacular.

Especially for this race weekend, the format is different, as on Saturday, the EuroNASCAR 2 gladiators will take to the track for free practice, qualifying (at 13.50) and a 70-lap race (or 40 minutes plus one lap), which will start at 15.55.

On Sunday, the EuroNASCAR PRO drivers have qualifying at 13.05 and a 100 lap race (or 45′ plus one lap) starting at 15.55, completing a full weekend of racing.

We recall that Thomas Krasonis participates this year in both EuroNASCAR categories, EuroNASCAR 2 and EuroNASCAR PRO, with the team with which in 2023 he made the big step in his racing career, Marko Stipp Motorsport.

Thomas is driving the number “46” Chevrolet Camaro at all Championship tracks this year, following a full schedule to maximise his track time and challenge for both titles.
