Rain Can’t Slow Lacroix At CTMP

Last-lap Pass of Ranger Nets Pinty’s Season-Opening Win

BOWMANVILLE, Ont — Kevin Lacroix finally figured out Canadian Tire Motorsport Park last fall, and the offseason did nothing to slow him down. Nor did the rain that arrived in force in the final laps of Sunday’s Can-Am 200.

The Saint-Eustache, Quebec, driver scored his second win in a row at the fame 2.459-mile road course. He won the E3 Spark Plug Pole Award Saturday, and then drove by Andrew Ranger on the final lap of Sunday’s race for his fifth career win.

A Lap 49 caution forced the race into overtime, with Lacroix and Ranger swapping the lead multiple times over the final turns before Lacroix’s No.74 Bumper to Bumper/Total/Gates Dodge pulled away for the win by 1.916 seconds.

Lacroix finished 26th (crash), 26th (clutch) and 23rd (rear end) in his first three starts at CTMP before his breakthrough last September. He led three times for a race-high 16 laps.

Gary Klutt snuck by defending series champion Cayden Lapcevich coming out of the final turn to claim the final podium spot. Klutt received the free pass twice in the last 12 laps to rally, while Alex Labbe rounded out the top five. 

LP Dumoulin who started from the rear due to a penalty, rebounded to finish sixth. JF Dumoulin, Jason Hathaway, Brett Taylor and Adam Martin rounded out the top 10.

Rain right before the start soaked the track and required teams to come down before the green flag to change to rain tires. Most teams switched back to slicks as the track dried, but then back to rain tires when showers returned and intensified in the closing stages of the race.

Alex Tagliani, fastest in practice, led 14 laps but slid off track into the tire barrier on Lap 49 to bring out the final caution and push the race to 55 laps. He finished 18th. Anthony Simone, chasing his first career win, led 15 laps before being relegated to 22nd with mechanical issues.

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series will be back in action Saturday, June 3rd at the Delaware Speedway for the Choko/Fast Eddie 250 presented by Havoline, for the second race of the season.

Eggleston Dominates Again At Orange Show

Claims Second K&N Pro West Win From Pole At California Bullring

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Orange Show Speedway has been a perfect fit for Chris Eggleston.

For the second consecutive season, Eggleston was victorious in the Sunrise Ford 150 presented by Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse. Saturday night, the 28-year-old Erie, Colorado, driver won the Coors Light Pole and dominated the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race on the quarter-mile.

It was his second win of the season and seventh time in his career. The victory also marked the 2015 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion’s sixth top five finish of the season.

Sheldon Creed and Todd Souza came home second and third, respectively.

Kody Vanderwal and Takuma Koga rounded out the top five. Both earned the free pass midway through the race, and rebounded for career-best finishes.

Series championship points leader Todd Gilliland, who entered the night on a four-race win streak, was involved in a multi-car incident on Lap 121. He rallied to finish sixth and was the last car to finish on the lead lap.

Eggleston led a race-high 71 laps, as there were 12 lead changes among five drivers. He sliced Gilliland’s championship lead down to 11 points.

Bill Kahn and Michael Self finished in seventh and eighth, respectively, both one lap down. Matt Levin and John Wood rounded out the top 10.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be back in action from Colorado National Speedway on Saturday, June 10 for the Toyota 150, the seventh of 14 races on the schedule. Last year, Eggleston followed up his Orange Show win with a victory at his home track in Colorado.

The Orange Show 150 will air on NBCSN on Friday, May 26 at 8 p.m. ET.
