Ranger Cruises At Circuit ICAR


MIRABEL, Quebec — Andrew Ranger became a repeat winner at Circuit ICAR with a victory on Sunday in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 Jiffy Lube 100.

The two-time series champion from Roxton Pond, Quebec went wire-to-wire for the win – his 17th career series victory and 14th on a road course.

Ranger had set a track record on the 2.113-mile airport road course a day earlier in winning the pole. He appeared to have his No. 27 La Cite De Mirabel Dodge on cruise control as he held command throughout Sunday’s 30-lap event.

Scott Steckly, who started third on the grid, held off L.P. Dumoulin for second at the finish. J.R. Fitzpatrick and Jeff Lapcevich were fourth and fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were D.J. Kennington, Kerry Micks, J.F. Dumoulin, Martin Roy and Alex Guenette.

Prior to Sunday, Ranger had registered the most recent wire-to-wire win in the series in 2011.

The finish:

Andrew Ranger, Scott Steckly, L.P. Dumoulin, J.R. Fitzpatrick, Jeff Lapcevich, D.J. Kennington, Kerry Micks, J.F.
