It’s Shepherd Again In Canadian Tire Series


BOWMANVILLE, Ontario — Pete Shepherd III keeps on showing up and he keeps on winning.

The Brampton, Ontario, native isn’t running for the championship in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1, but that hasn’t stopped him from collection winner’s trophies. He picked up his second straight Saturday night in the Clarington 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

The victory on the facility’s half-mile oval was the second straight for Shepherd, who drove the No. 7 National Exhaust/Diamond Material Handling Dodge to Victory Lane last week at Delaware Speedway. It’s Shepherd’s fifth career win in 18 starts over the last four years.

Scott Steckly rebounded from a slow start to the season to finish second. The two-time series champion had finished 21st and 24th in his two previous races.

J.R. Fitzpatrick was third, followed by Jason Hathaway and Steve Mathews.

The finish:

Pete Shepherd III, Scott Steckly, J.R. Fitzpatrick, Jason Hathaway, Steven Mathews, Martin Roy, L.P. Dumoulin, Jeff Lapcevich, Hugo Vannini, D.J. Kennington, Jason White, Ryley Seibert, Dave Connelly, Bradon White, Ray Courtemanche Jr., Noel Dowler, Alex Guenette, Ron Beauchamp Jr., Kerry Micks, Larry Jackson, Trevor Seibert
