Chrysler Canada: Dodge Drivers Finish 1-2-3 at Circuit ICAR; Quebec Native Andrew Ranger Claims Victory for Second Year in a Row

July 8, 2013 , Windsor, Ontario -
Though it was his season debut in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1, Andrew Ranger proved that he and his Dodge racecar are a dominate force at Circuit ICAR. The Roxton Pond, Quebec native won Sunday’s Jiffy Lube 100 presented by Snap-on for the second year in a row.
Early in Saturday qualifying, Ranger set the tone for the second of four road-course events this season. At the wheel of his No. 27 La Cite De Mirabel Inc. Dodge, he smashed the track record, taking the pole position for the 30-lap race at the Mirabel, Quebec airport circuit.
The two-time NASCAR Canadian Tire Series champion drove his Dodge across the finish line first on Sunday, followed by two more Dodge drivers: Scott Steckly in the No. 22 Canadian Tire Dodge and L.P. Dumoulin in the No. 47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare Dodge.
“It’s a pretty technical track with lots of tight turns,” said Ranger. “You really have to hit your marks to be fast… The support from my home fans drives me to success.”
Of the Top 10 finishers at Circuit ICAR on Sunday, eight were Dodge cars, including the top three finishers.
Starting in 9th place and finishing in 6th, D.J. Kennington and his No. 17 Castrol Edge/Mahindra Tractors Dodge still leads the series' points, followed L.P. Dumoulin and Jeff Lapcevich, also both Dodge drivers.
