August 31, 2014. Joey McColm and Canada’s Best Racing Team were front and center this past weekend during round number nine of the NASCAR Canadian Tire series at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP). With more than 100 guests from PartSource at the event McColm carried his #25 PartSource/Toronto Maple Leafs car into a top ten finish.
Working hard all the weekend the #25 PartSource/Toronto Maple Leafs team made adjustments during practice to improve the car. McColm would qualify in the 23rd position.
“Not where we wanted to be but the car felt really good” said McColm.
As the 51 lap race began on the famed 10 turn road course McColm was confident in the #25 PartSource/Toronto Maple Leafs team’s strategy.
“Our plan was to pit early for fuel and go the distance on our tires” explained McColm.
The race began with a lengthy green flag stretch and McColm and the team followed the strategy at first but as circumstances changed the #25 PartSource Toronto Maple Leafs team adjusted on the fly.
“When a caution period came later than we expected, we came in and took left side tires and that really helped us battling in the late stages.
Through the final laps McColm pushed the #25 PartSource/Toronto Maple Leafs car forward and captured a tenth place result at the finish.
“Our background isn’t it road racing so to pick up a top ten finish at this tough track is just awesome” he stated. “I’m really happy to be able to have a strong result like this with so many folks cheering us on. It’s great for PartSource and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
With his fourth top ten result of the season Joey McColm now sits eighth in the overall championship standings.
Joey McColm and the #25 CBRT team return to action this coming Saturday, September 6th at Barrie Speedway.
