TAG Laps the Field for Win in
NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Race
Montreal, June 21, 2015 Starting fourth on the grid in Round 3 of the 2015
NASCAR Canadian Tire Series held Saturday night at Sunset Speedway, Alex
Tagliani ran the race of his life when he lapped the entire field en route to win his
second race in the series.
The pilot of the No 18 EpiPen/CGI/CanTorque Chevrolet became the first driver in
Canadian Tire Series history to cross the finish line with a lap lead, earning the honour
at the inaugural Leland Industries 300. The Lachenaie resident was dominant after he
took the lead on lap 108.
The 300-lap affair on the one-third mile oval was run at a very fast pace with only two
caution periods. The race was green flag from lap 21 to lap 287. It was during that
period that Tagliani lapped his 19 opponents.
“I can’t remember the last time I have felt so good on a race track,” Tagliani said
during a short telephone conversation. “My EpiPen/CGI/CanTorque Chevrolet was
simply perfect tonight.”
The Leland Industries 300 presented by Johnsonville will premiere on TSN on June 28
at 1 p.m. ET. The Canadian Tire Series will return to the track on July 5 for the Ecko
Unlimited 100 at Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Quebec.
