Three Straight For Scott Steckly
ST. EUSTACHE, Quebec — Scott Steckly returned to a familiar place on Saturday night, victory lane at Autodrome St. Eustache after winning the National 250 presented by Public Mobile.
Steckly staged a heated battle with J.R. Fitzpatrick as the two exchanged the lead four times over the final 65 laps of the race. However, a lap-243 spin by Fitzpatrick in turn four, while racing side-by-side with Steckly, paved the way for the No. 22 Canadian Tire/Sylvania Dodge.
It was Steckly’s third consecutive NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 victory and the 14th of his series career. Additionally, it was his third win in five starts on the four-tenths-mile Quebec oval.
Rookie Alex Guenette finished in the runner-up spot, followed by Fitzpatrick in third. Ron Beauchamp Jr. finished in the fourth spot after winning his fifth career pole position earlier in the day. Jason White followed with a season-best finish of fifth.
Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, Martin Roy, Trevor Seibert, Dave Connelly and Noel Dowler completed the top 10.
