Montreal: History Proves it’s One of the most Exciting Races of the Season
August 17, 2012 1 Comment
The inaugural event in 2007 had three drivers doing burnouts on the frontstretch after the race with only one taking home the coveted trophy. The following year, Canadian Ron Fellows won the race in historic fashion as NASCAR ran its first points race in the rain. The excitement continued in 2009 with Carl Edwards taking home the victory.
The race started in dry conditions, then a switch to rain tires before a finish on a dry track that featured Edwards clearing Marcos Ambrose on the final turn of the last lap. The next year provided an even closer finish with Boris Said edging Max Papis in a photo finish for his second national series win with a margin of victory of just .012 seconds in 2010.
In 2011, Marcos Ambrose took home the victory after vowing earlier that year that he would keep returning to Montreal until he won.
Who will take home bragging rights in the series last road course race of the season? Buckle up because if the past foreshadows the future we are in for a ride.
