@NASCAR • @AutChaudiere • @andrew_ranger • (June 14, 2015)- Andrew Ranger had his hands full at the start of the day with the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge at round number two of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at the Autodrome Chaudière on Saturday night. But by the end of the night he’d gained ten positions from the start of the race and collected a big handful of championship points.
The Mopar Motorsports Crew struggled with the set up on the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge during practice and Ranger only managed a 14th starting spot on the grid for the 300-lap feature event.
“The car was a little bit tight on entry and at the midpoint so qualifying was difficult,” said Ranger.
Starting deep in the field Ranger quickly set about moving forward but had to use an unconventional line to do it.
“I was using the high line and it was working for us,” he explained. “As the race went on the racing groove moved up and it helped us out,” he added.
For 300 laps Ranger had his hands full with the competition and battled hard to continue improving his position.
“It was a little bit crazy and there was lots of action” said the driver “but the team worked really hard to make some changes to the Mopar Parts Dodge during the race and we ended up fourth and with a good points night” he stated.
After two races Andrew Ranger sits fourth in the overall championship standings just six points behind third position.
“It was a good night for us, I enjoyed racing in front of a lot of family and friends at this track and I’m really looking forward to this weekend’s race” stated Ranger.
Andrew Ranger and the #27 Mopar Parts Dodge team are back in action this coming Saturday June 20 at Sunset Speedway in Innisfil, Ontario.
