Racing career

Labbé at Autodrome Chaudière in 2013

Early years

He was the rookie of the year and champion of the Quebec's Super Truck Series in 2009, rookie of the year in the Quebec's ACT Series in 2010 and vice-champion in 2013. He won three races in the Quebec's ACT Series and two in the US-based ACT Tour.

In 2014, he became the youngest champion of the Quebec's ACT Series[1] at 21. He also picked his first two wins in PASS North Series.

Pinty's Series

Labbé finished sixth in his first start in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Circuit ICAR in 2012.[2] He continued to run sporadically with his family team, but then scored a pole in his first start with Dave Jacombs at Autodrome Saint-Eustache in 2014. However, Labbe fell out of the race with suspension problems.[3] Running part-time with Jacombs again in 2015, Labbe scored another pole, this one at Autodrome Chaudière, and finished a career-high second.[4] Labbe drove for Go Fas Racing in 2016,[5] running the full schedule for the first time in the No. 32 Can-Am Ford, grabbing four poles and winning what some say was the best race ever in the Pinty's Series, at Autodrome Chaudiere over Cayden Lapcevich by just over .3 seconds.[6][6] After finishing seventh in championship points in 2016, Labbe will return to the No. 32 in 2017.[7]

Xfinity Series

Labbé make his Xfinity Series debut at Phoenix International Raceway in November 2016, driving the No. 90 Chevrolet Camaro for King Autosport.[8] He finished 23rd, and will run four races next year.[7][9] It was announced in April 2017 that he would make his 2nd start at Texas Motor Speedway, with the same team he drove in 2016.
