Loudon (NH), September 22, 2019 – Team Bumper to Bumper had a very encouraging event during the second NASCAR Pinty’s series event at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway last Saturday.
Kevin Lacroix, driver of the #74 Bumper to Bumper / Total / PFC Brakes / Lacroix Tuning was dominant on the one-mile oval during practice and qualifying, posting the fastest time twice. “We have an excellent car for this track,” said Lacroix. “Everything went very well; the speed was there and we were confident for Saturday’s event at noon.”
The Saint-Eustache native took the start from pole position, staying there for 92 of the 100 laps of the race on the “Magic Mile”. However, at the end of the race, one of his tire delaminated, causing him to lose speed. It was at this point that Andrew Ranger, his main competitor for the title, took the lead.
Lacroix was still going to be satisfied with a second place finish, but that is not what happened when, in the last corner, Alex Labbé pushed him into the wall, taking Lacroix’s spot and preventing him from scoring precious points for the championship, even though Labbé is no longer in the fight for the title.
“I don’t know what to say about Labbé’s move at the end of the race,” explained the driver. “It’s a shame, a real shame. »
Kevin finished in 12th place, one lap behind the other drivers who managed topass the chequered flag. This position made him lose the championship lead,and is now 11 points behind Andrew Ranger as the last race of the NASCAR Pinty’s season will be held next week on September 28.
