Steckly Finishes Eighth in Edmonton
Edmonton, Alberta. Friday July 11, 2014 Round four in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 took place on Friday at Edmonton International Raceway. Steckly driving the Canadian Tire/Mobil 1 Dodge finished eighth after battling back from a two lap deficit.
Practice went well for Steckly in his 22 Racing entry as he finished first practice in the top spot and was runner up in practice number two. “The car is really good but I think we are going to find it difficult to pass in the race so qualifying up front will be important.”
Qualifying didn’t go quite as planned as the Canadian Tire Dodge was seventh quickest, lining them up on the inside of row four for the start of the Alberta Has Energy 300.
The 300 lap race was going according to plan as Steckly continued to move to the front, challenging race leader and teammate Tagliani for the lead. After the lap 141 competition caution for tires and fuel Steckly was again working his way to the front when a rear end oil line came off the car. The 22 Racing crew quickly went to work and had Steckly back on track only two laps down. Now the work would begin to get those laps back. While the cautions came to allow him to get his laps back the race was reaching its conclusion and an eighth place result was posted.
“We had a great car tonight,” said Steckly. “The result doesn’t reflect how good a car we had. My crew did an incredible job of getting the car fixed and back out losing only the two laps. We will head to Saskatoon and go for the win again.”
The Alberta Has Energy 300 from Edmonton International Raceway will air Sun. July 20th at 3 p.m. ET on TSN and Sat. July 26th at 3 p.m. on RDS2.
Next up for the Canadian Tire/Mobil 1 team will be Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon on Wednesday July 16th where Steckly is the defending race winner.
