Alex Tagliani takes second place at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and climbs back into the lead in the Drivers Championship
Camirand crossed the finish line in first place, ninth-tenths of a second ahead of runner-up Tagliani followed by rookie Kyle Marcelli who scored his first podium finish. Kevin Lacroix and Andrew Ranger completed the top five. The second place finish gave back to the driver of the RONA - Viagra - St Hubert Chevrolet Camaro first place in the drivers championship standings ahead of Kevin Lacroix and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin who had taken over the lead following his win on Saturday, but his 11th place finish on Sunday pushed him back to third place on Sunday.
Thirteen of the 24 starters finished on the lead lap.
"A fourth place yesterday and a runner-up position today (Sunday). It's not a bad weekend of racing. We get out of Mosport on top of the championship standings and that is what is important," said Alex Tagliani. "For Sunday's race, I think we had a pretty good car. With a bit of hindsight, I think we sort of regret not to have made a tire change when the other teams did in their second stop. We added fuel during our first stop but did not make a stop when we had a chance to do so. They had made their stop but we did not. At the end of the race, they were on fresher tires, which enabled them to catch up to me very quickly. Still, I was slowed downed by a backmarker and Marc-Antoine(Camirand) took the opportunity to take over first place. It is still a good finish for me and for the Team 22 Racing with this one-two finish. My team did a great job in this run for the championship."
