Ranger Still Owns Circuit ICAR
MIRABEL, Quebec – Andrew Ranger is pretty close to unstoppable at Circuit ICAR.
The two-time champion of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 led the final nine laps Sunday to take the checkered flag in the Jiffy Lube 100 presented by La Petite Bretonne.
It was Rangers’ third straight win at the 2.113-mile, 16-turn road course on the grounds of Montreal-Mirabel Int’l Airport. And it was Rangers’ 18th career win; 15 of which have come on road courses.
Ranger took the lead from Alex Guenette on lap 21 and wound up beating last year’s series rookie of the year to the line by 3.682 seconds.
L.P. Dumoulin finished third, followed by rookie Alex Labbe and Alex Tagliani. J.R. Fitzpatrick, Scott Steckly, rookie Gary Klutt, Jason Hathaway and Peter Klutt rounded out the top 10.
