Canadian Tire is one of my favourite stores. How can you not love a place that sells car parts, sponsors race cars, and even owns its own race track? Sure I still call it Mosport and not Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, but hey…Mosport just kinda sounds right.

Canadian Tire has its own charity called Jump Start which is “…dedicated to helping kids overcome financial and accessibility barriers to sport and recreation in order to provide inclusive play for kids of all abilities…”

They’re having a contest where you can win a “Go Karting Experience” with NHL player Connor McDavid, the captain of the Edmonton Oilers. The event will take place in 2019 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, and includes.

  • Round trip flight and 2 nights’ accommodation for two
  • Ground transportation in Toronto from the airport to Mosport (CTMP)
  • $500 Prepaid Cash Card
  • Two $100 Canadian Tire Gift cards

Sure I’m 40 something and 200 pounds plus…but I can whip this guy! I think I can beat Connor McDavid. Sure he’s younger, has quicker reflexes, and happens to be a professional athlete. But I know Arrive & Drive karts. I know Mosport Kartways. I know I can beat Connor McDavid.

The link to the contest is above, and it’s for charity.
