ST-EUSTACHE, QC – Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has crossed the finish line in sixth place Saturday night at St-Eustache’s Autodrome. Everything was in place for the WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare team to end up on the podium. However, a mechanical problem which occurred at the end of the event forced the Quebecer to slow down in order to be able to cross the finish line.
Louis-Philippe Dumoulin was competing for the first time on St-Eustache’s oval track, and started the National 250 in eighth place behind the wheel of the #47 Dodge WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare. During his strategic overtakes (between the 98th and 206th laps), Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has patiently made his way to the top-3. During the 207th lap, the Dumoulin Competition driver was forced to make a pit stop due to an engine part failure.

“We once again had a great car, like for every other race. Tyler Case [crew chief] and the WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare mechanical team had prepared a very competitive car and I am proud to collaborate with each of them. What happened is really a shame, we were well positioned on the starting grid, and we were patient and managed to stay on the lead lap until late in the race. Furthermore, we hadn’t made the pit stop for the tire change. Everything was on track for us to have an extremely fast car at the end to be able to fight for the victory. Unfortunately, a part in the engine failed and I had to maintain the same place to finish the race”, explains Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
Behind Scott Steckly (22Racing who prepare 47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare cars), this fifth top-10 of the season gives Dumoulin the second place in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series standings.
Special mention: During the event, the medical team’s intervention was necessary to bring assistance to Phil Arnold (Josh Arnold’s father – WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare team member). Fortunately, it was without consequence. Dumoulin Competition wishes him a speedy recovery.
