"NASCAR appreciates the support and enthusiasm the great fans of Montreal have shown during our six years of exciting racing at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. It's been a great run for the NASCAR Nationwide Series at this historic venue," NASCAR said.

NASCAR hopes to still be race in Canada next season, possibly with the Truck Series. One potential venue for NASCAR is Mosport International Raceway in Toronto. The track is co-owned by Fellows, the popular veteran who won Montreal's NAPA 200 in 2008.

NASCAR also plans to fill the void left by Montreal in its 33-race schedule, which has yet to be announced. NASCAR's preference is to explore new markets where it's not currently sanctioning national series events, and is leaning toward a road course race. Potential venues include Mid-Ohio and Road Atlanta.
