I got to know Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, #47 WeatherTech.ca car, last year when he came to a CTMP track day I organized to get a bit more track time and tuning for the car. He is a wonderful gentleman and I wish him all the best this season.
NASCAR Canada was here for their opening event and it was a road course event. I will admit that I have never followed NASCAR until the last couple of years. And then really only the road courses and to keep tabs on my friends. Here is defending champion Louis-Philippe Dumoulin in the #47 WeatherTech Dodge ripping through Moss Corner. L-P was in contention until a spin knocked him off pace, fighting back to a sixth place finish.
D.J. Kennington and his #17 Dodge captured fourth place and the new livery on his Dodge is fantastic.
After the qualifying session, Jean-Francois Dumoulin was looking over the stats. I think he was pleased! When I chatted with him he indicated it was okay, but this photo speaks louder than words. Bravo, J-F!
Jean-Francois Dumoulin captured his first podium finish with a third place result. His new car looked and ran great.
Jeff Lapevich – in the iconic #76 Tim Horton's ride – eventually captured second. Leaving space between cars through the corners – not necessary – and it was fantastic to watch.
Early in the race pole position and eventual winner #59 rookie Gary Klutt – there is a bit of bumping with #27 Andrew Ranger. Scott Steckly #22 staying very close.
