For D.J. Kennington the highlight of 2012 was not the record-breaking NASCAR Canadian Tire Series season where he collected his second championship and won in seven of 12 races — it was the birth of his and his wife Jaime’s son Chase on Nov. 28.

“Now that was pretty incredible,” Kennington said Thursday as he put the final touches on the No. 17 Castrol Edge Dodge in preparation for this weekend’s season- opening Pinty’s Presents the Vortex Brake Pads 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.
