@andrew_ranger • @NASCARHomeTrack • (August 15, 2015)- Andrew Ranger and the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge were once again at or near the front of the field for much of the night during round nine of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series this past Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Ranger qualified third for the race and finished in that same position for his third consecutive podium result.
After moving quickly into second at the start of the race Ranger pushed the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge into the lead on lap 13 and would again find himself out front after the first caution period of the night.
“I was trying to just run smooth in the early part of the race but the car had a bit of a push,” said Ranger.
During scheduled pit stops for fuel and tires the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge team also made handling adjustments to the car to eliminate the push.
“It did help for a while in the middle of the race and I worked my way back to the front,” stated the driver.
A long green flag run to the end of the 300-lap event would find Ranger with another issue.
“The changes the team made helped in the middle helped but the car became very loose by the end of the race and I was hanging on and working very hard to stay up near the front” he stated.
Muscling the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge to the end and crossing the finish line third extends the string of consecutive podium results to three and keeps Ranger in the hunt for the championship.
“It was a great job by the whole Mopar Motorsports team, it was a good podium finish to collect some points, we’re second in the championship and we head to a road course next which will be a good opportunity for us to move up” stated Ranger.
Andrew Ranger and the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge team return to action in two weeks time for round ten of the season during the NASCAR Truck Series weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park August 29 & 30th.
