The 2012 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series season was the sixth season of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series taking place in the summer of 2012. The season composed of twelve races at eleven different venues. Seven of those events were contested on oval courses.

Summary

The sixth season consisted of 12 events spanning across 5 provinces featuring 12 events. New this season were the standardised rule changes for NASCAR's regional series matching that of the national series (green-white-checker finish and points system). All of the races were aired on TSN in one-hour tape-delayed episodes, excluding Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and Trois-Rivières being aired live on the network.

The season started on May 20 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park with J. R. Fitzpatrick winning his first event in almost 2 years, Andrew Ranger also returned to victory lane the following week at Circuit ICAR. D. J. Kennington went to win a NASCAR touring record of 5 consecutive races at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Delaware Speedway, Motoplex Speedway, Edmonton Indy and Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. Ranger and Fitzpatrick won the two premier road course events at Circuit Trois-Rivieres and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in August. Then at Barrie Speedway, Peter Shepherd took advantage of an accident involving leaders Steve Matthews and Fitzpatrick, who were involved in an accident on a green-white-checker finish to pick up the Victory. Points leader Kennington suffered a mechanical failure and finished down in the running order but rebounded strong winning the final two events of the year at Kawartha and Riverside capturing 2 championships in 3 years.
