Alex Tagliani Finishes Fourth at Flamboro Speedway and Keeps the Lead in the NASCAR Pinty's Drivers Championship
The driver of the number 18 RONA - Viagra - St Hubert Chevrolet Camaro started his day with an 11th place finish in the morning practice session before improving to eight overall during to solo qualifying session in the afternoon. Even though his starting position placed him far from polesitter and teammate Treyten Lapcevich, Tagliani slowly worked the field and took every opportunity to increase his position to finish fourth.
" Unfortunately for the NASCAR drivers, we ran only once at Flamboro, the second half of the double header was postponed due to inclement weather," said Alex Tagliani. "I finished fourth, but it enabled me to score enough points to maintain first place in the drivers standings with an 11-point lead, three more than I had at the conclusion of the Mosport race last weekend. I am very pleased with the results, but there is still three races left on the 2021 schedule at Delaware Speedway. It is not a time to take things for granted. I must concentrate on our objective to win the title. Delaware is an oval track where I finished second in 2017. I am going to concentrate on winning the title."
The second event of the day, the Quick Wick Firestarter 125, which was due to start 40 minutes following the conclusion of the first race but was unfortunately postponed due to rain. Series officials are working on rescheduling the race.
Ten of the 18 starters finished on the lead lap.
The next and final rounds of the NASCAR Pinty's Series 2021 Championship, The Pinty's Fall Brawl will be held at Delaware Speedway, Ontario on September 26, 2021
