Michael DiMeo Keeps Winning In Canada
“First off I have to thank everyone that made the weekend possible, Compass360 Racing, and my sponsors, LiUNA and CTF. It’s great to have their support, have them backing me, it just motivates me to do well, especially here,” said DiMeo. “I wanted to put on a good show for everyone here at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, so with three wins, that was a pretty good end to the weekend and I hope we can maintain this going into New Jersey.”
In Touring Car A, Jason Wolfe sought the same feat as DiMeo in terms of a weekend sweep of the three races. Wolfe led the whole way until the second last lap of the race when Francis, who had started second, passed to take the lead. Francis end up winning the race by 5.845 seconds.
“At the beginning of the race I was sliding all over the place, I was just trying to find grip out there, and one of my teammates Jason Cherry, made a mistake on turn nine, got sideways and I was able to get by him and move into second place,” said Francis. “Then it was just chasing down Wolfe and keeping the pressure on him until he finally made a mistake and I was able to get on the inside of him on turn three and squeeze him to the outside and then kept on going.”
Shea Holbrook finished on the podium for the third time in as many races. Holbrook started from the rear of the field after a violation found in post-race technical inspection on Saturday, but bounced back nicely on Sunday.
The Touring Car B race was fairly straightforward in terms of the top two positions. Stacy was able to streak away from his first series pole position. He lead the entire race for a flag-to-flag victory, winning by some 24.328 seconds over Brian Price. Price won the first three races of the season.
Behind them though, was a seriously intense and dramatic battle for third place. Taking the position at the flag was P.J. Groenke.
