Rain washes out NCATS qualifying at ICAR

MIRABEL, Que. (June 2, 2012) – The weather would not cooperate with the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series on Saturday at Circuit ICAR. A persistent rain all morning and afternoon forced the cancellation of qualifying for the ICAR Lucas Oil Grand Prix presented by Budweiser.

The race lineup, therefore, is determined by the series rule book which gives the pole position to defending series champion Scott Steckly with D.J. Kennington alongside.

A pair of practice sessions was held earlier in the day on a wet track, but NASCAR officials cancelled qualifying due to the possibility of unequal track conditions throughout the session.

Defending race champion Robin Buck, whose car suffered some damage in a practice crash is slated to start the race from the 15th position with two-time series champion Andrew Ranger, who has 11 series road-course victories to his credit, on the outside in the 16th starting spot.

Rookie Elie Arseneau, who posted the fastest lap in practice, starts 27th in the 29-car field.

The race is scheduled to take the green flag on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. ET.
