@DumoulinDC • @NASCARHomeTrack • Wetaskiwin, AB (July 12, 2015) – For the second year in a row on the oval track of the Edmonton International Raceway, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has crossed the finish line in second place yesterday.
In a race punctuated with ten neutralizations, including a red flag, the driver of the Dodge #47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare in collaboration with crew chief Mario Gosselin, King Autosport, has been able to defend his place among the leaders with great agility and combativeness throughout the race (300 laps).
The practices sessions have allowed the #47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare team to make some efficient adjustments, thus positioning the car in fourth place on the starting grid. The fifth event of the season gave way to an action packed spectacle. The multiple restarts have forced Louis-Philippe Dumoulin to persevere in order to execute on strategic overtakes and to impose himself among his adversaries. Furthermore, he was declared winner of ther Dodge-Mopar quick three for his speed on the track.
“We are very happy to once again be on the podium in Edmonton. This morning, we’ve tried different adjustments and in the end, we’ve opted for more standard settings. The boys at King Autosport and Mario Gosselin [crew chief] have worked really hard so that the Dodge #47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare car would be reliable. During the race, exemplary team work and synergy took place. In the pits, the adjustments that were made have really helped for the second part of the race. The podium feels good. It’s very important to continue to rack up points in the championship,” explains Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, the only Quebecer to have climbed the podium in this race.
Sixth event of the season: Velocity Prairie Thunder 250
