St. Eustache, Que. July 27, 2013. Ron Beauchamp Jr. credits his strong race car for a successful day starting with pole position and ending in a top five finish at the National 250.
Beauchamp and his team made very minor adjustments to the #60 Mopar/Exide/Pennzoil Dodge in practice, as the vehicle ran well from the start. Qualifying saved the best for last, as Beauchamp was the final vehicle to qualify and he earned pole position for the main event at the Autodrome St. Eustache.
“Being the last car out and to stick it on the pole was a nice boost,” Beauchamp said after practice.
The #60 Dodge was able to maintain his lead position for the first 50 laps of the contest and pitted for fuel at the first caution, still staying near the front of the field.
Beauchamp ran into a bit of trouble later in the race, where contact with another car shook the hood loose and reduced his visibility. NASCAR backflagged Beauchamp’s #60 and called him to pit road to resolve the issue. Beauchamp’s team worked quickly and efficiently to fix the hood.
Despite going down a lap, Beauchamp climbed back into the top five, earned a free pass and muscled his way back toward the front of the field late in the race. He fought to earn his lead position back, but had difficulties with the last caution’s restart.
The #60 Dodge eventually crossed the finish line in fourth place.
“We had such a great race car all night, it stayed strong from start to finish,” Beauchamp said after the race. “I’m really happy for the team and all of our supporters to get the pole and have a solid result. We’re starting to gain some momentum now.”
After yesterday’s race, Beauchamp sits in 7th place in the overall standings with 229 points.
