Race 4 Update (Jun 22, 2022)
Louis-Philippe Dumoulin arrived at Autodrome Chaudiere looking to climb the points standings with a strong performance at race 3 of the NASCAR Pinty's Series.
L.P. was able to drop the hammer during qualifying, taking pole position for the start of the race. He battled at the front of the pack, however several red flags and cautions extended the race well past sunset, making it more difficult to drive the #47.
"We were fast on the track, however when the sun went down, the car started to understeer and be more difficult to drive on the long runs. We fought for the podium throughout the race. On a restart at the end, we should have started 3rd instead of 4th, which would have allowed us to start on the inside row. We will meet with the officials about this issue. In the meantime, we will take the points for 4th place" shares L.P.
Just 4 points behind the championship leader, L.P. and Dumoulin Competition now head to Eastbound International Speedway for race 4 and the very first NASCAR Pinty's Series event in Newfoundland!
Race 3 Update (Jun 8, 2022)
Race #2 at CTMP was an eventful one resulting in a P7 finish. It was not the result Dumoulin Competition was looking for, however valuable points were secured as L.P. gained positions in the championship standings. L.P. was able to clock the fastest time during the practice session, but shortly after a severe rain storm followed forcing officials to cancel qualifying. This gave L.P. pole position for the start of the race on Sunday.
Race day started off with wet conditions, however L.P. was able to adapt and stay at the front of the pack before some bad luck struck the 3x champ. A miscalculation caused L.P. to run out of fuel, forcing him to make a pit stop dropping position on the grid.
L.P. now has his sights set on Autodrome Chaudière, which is the first race in Quebec for 2022!

His focus now shifts to race 2, where he's looking to earn some points and make a strong recovery on the CTMP road course.
