Kevin Lacroix conquers Jukasa for first NASCAR Pinty’s oval win

For the better part of three seasons Kevin Lacroix has dominated the road courses races in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. But was still looking for his elusive first oval track win.

He took care of that Saturday night in dominating fashion, by winning the Rankin Construction 200 at Jukasa Motor Speedway.

The 30-year-old driver from Saint-Eustache, Quebec took the lead on Lap 79 after the first competition break and didn’t look back.

Lacroix’s No. 74 Bumper To Bumper/ Total/ Gates Dodge held off hard charges from Alex Tagliani and Cole Powell in the closing laps and in NASCAR Overtime for his ninth career series victory.

Series newcomer Cole Powell, in his second career NASCAR Pinty’s Series start, led 67 laps and finished second. Alex Tagliani rounded out the top three for his first podium finish of 2018.

Marc-Antoine Camirand and Andrew Ranger were fourth and fifth, respectively.

D.J Kennington finished sixth, while CTMP winner LP Dumoulin rebounded after a flat tire on lap 140 and a jumping the restart penalty on lap 149 to finish seventh.

Josten’s Rookie of the Year candidate Brett Taylor, Peter Shepherd III and Connor James completed the top 10.

With the win, Lacroix took the points lead from Dumoulin by five points. Marc-Antoine Camirand, two behind Dumoulin and one ahead of Powell.

The Rankin Construction 200 will air on TSN2 on Saturday, June 23, at 2 p.m ET, and on RDS2 on Tuesday, July 3 at 10:30 p.m.

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series will be back in action Saturday, June 30, at Quebec’s Autodrome Chaudiere.
