Schwartz Win at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in TC

As the white flag flew Poland was glued to the back of Fergus through turns 1 and into 2. Out of turn 5 and onto the back straight the two would go side-by side as they once again encountered lap traffic. Fergus and Poland would dice through the final few turns of the race and as the two came through the final turn of the track on to the front straight, Fergus would edge out Poland for the win. The differential as they crossed the line was .081, a new smallest margin of victory for the class at CTMP.

Ellsworth, Friedman, and Jason Cherry, of Gambrills, MD in the No. 13 Skullcandy/Nissan Altima would close out the top 5. Francis dropped off the pace ultimately finishing in 10th.
In TCA, Holton would win over Wolfe and Sequin. While in TCB, it was Schwartz, over Nixon and Smith

"Our race went very well. We had a very good start and after starting second we quickly moved into first," said Schwartz. "As the race progressed I had a lot of confidence in the car. After an emotional day yesterday where an issue with two laps to go cost me the win, it was great to get back on the winning side after the momentum of the winning streak at COTA. When you have as much weight as we are now carrying in the front, 62% front weight bias, it really puts a toll on the Pirelli tires. But they have done a great job in making them wear so consistently and well."

"It was a pretty crazy race starting third," said Holton. "I think at one point we (Wolfe) and I were two wide through every corner except turn 5. We had some really good racing and I was able to get by on the lap after the restart and was using traffic to get a gap and I was able to hold it. It was great race and a great day to have the Children's Tumor Foundation on the car and we have a couple of families here."

Of note, Smith was awarded the Optima Batteries Best Start Award for gaining six positions off of the start, as well as the VP Racing Fuels Hard Charger Award for gaining five positions overall during the race. Fergus was awarded the Stop Tech Brake Late Finish First Award.
