NASCAR will not race in Montreal next season after the promoter pulled the plug on the six-year relationship when he couldn’t secure a premier Sprint Cup Series event.

The official announcement Friday by promoter Francois Dumontier ended a surprising turn of events for NASCAR, which wanted to continue running the Nationwide Series at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

“NASCAR was preparing to return for 2013, however we were unable to come to an agreement,” NASCAR said in a statement.
