Canadian Tire Series News & Notes: CTMP
Mathews Hungry; Ready For Win
By Shon Sbarra, NASCAR
June 17, 2013 - 1:51pm

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – He’s been nosing around it for a while and Steve Mathews feels it’s time to take the next step.
Mathews splashed onto the scene in 2009 in his NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 debut at the Speedway at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario by setting fast time in practice and the race results showed it wasn’t a stab in the dark. After qualifying fourth, the now 22-year-old out of New Liskeard, Ontario finished sixth to prove that he could compete with Canada’s best stock-car competitors.
In three subsequent races on that same half-mile oval Mathews has driven his No. 15 Bill Mathews Motors Ford to two more top-10 finishes and a start from the outside pole position a year ago in the Clarington 200.






After 22 series starts – primarily on ovals – across five seasons now, Mathews, who scored a series career-best finish of third on June 15 at Delaware (Ontario) Speedway, has three top-five finishes and two pole wins. While not an indictment on his performance Mathews notes the glaring lack of a victory. Considering the competition, it’s not a huge red flag, but he thinks it’s past time to go to Victory Lane. Further whetting his appetite for a win was last September’s battle at Barrie (Ontario) Speedway. Mathews started from the pole position and had a late-race lead before tangling with some traffic resulting in a disappointing finish in fourth.
“I really thought we had that one, but it didn’t work out,” said Mathews. “When you get that close it makes you want it even more. I have no doubt that we’ll get there. We have a solid team.”
Cutting his racing teeth on the half-mile oval at Delaware, Mathews believes the two Ontario tracks are similar enough for the experience to transfer.
“I began my career at Delaware and the two tracks are fairly similar,” he said. “We run the same gear and the setups are pretty close. There are a few differences between the two (tracks), but I feel comfortable there.”
The relatively flat egg-shaped oval at CTMP creates some setup problems for race teams, but Mathews enjoys competing there.
“I like that track,” he stated. “It can be a little tricky, but everyone knows it well and will be ready for the race. I don’t expect anyone to be surprised.”
The stakes for the Clarington 200 were raised last week with Canadian Tire Motorsport Park’s announcement that they will cease operation of the oval track later this summer to continue the ongoing renovation of the facility by the new ownership group that came onboard in 2011.
“I absolutely would love to win the last Canadian Tire Series race there,” declared Mathews.

FAST FACTS

The Race: This is the third event of the 2013 season for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 and the second of eight oval-track events on the schedule. This is the series’ seventh time to the oval at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

The Procedure: The starting field is 24 cars, including provisionals. The first 21 cars will qualify through two-lap time trials. The remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race will be 200 laps covering 100 miles.

The Track: The Speedway at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, formerly known as Mosport Speedway, is part of Canada's largest motorsports complex. The 750-acre, multi-track facility is located within the Greater Toronto Area, north of Bowmanville, Ont. CTMP also features the 2.459-mile road course, a 2.4-kilometer advanced driver and race driver training facility and a 1.4-kilometer karting track. The facility opened in 1961 and has hosted stock car, Formula 1 and IndyCar events over the years. Canadian Tire acquired the naming rights to the facility earlier this year.

The Records: The single-lap qualifying record is held by Pete Shepherd III of 21.517 seconds (83.655 mph) was set on June 16, 2012. The 200-lap race record was established on May 28, 2011 by Scott Steckly at 1 hour, 30 minutes, 21 seconds for an average speed of 66.740 mph.

RACE NOTES

So Long: The Clarington 200 will be the final NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event on the half-mile oval at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The management team for the venue announced earlier this month that it will be closing the oval track to make way for an expanded driver development course. The track has hosted a race every year since the series’ inception in 2007. The Canadian Tire Series will continue to visit the 2.459-mile road course and looks forward to the Sept. 1 shared date with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the iconic road circuit.

Big Night: Scott Steckly needs a solid performance in the Clarington 200. Two events into the 2013 campaign finds the two-time series champion down 36 points in the standings to leader D.J. Kennington. Steckly finished 24th in the season opener after an early-race crash and 21st at Delaware Speedway due to mechanical problems.

Same, But Different: It’s certainly not new to see Kennington atop the season standings, but he got there without the benefit of a victory. A season ago, Kennington established a series record with seven wins. Consistency has been the name of the game so far for the defending champion with a pair of fourth-place efforts with just two of 12 races in the books.

Equal Opportunity: After six Canadian Tire Series events each of the three series manufacturers – Chevrolet, Dodge and Ford – have been to Victory Lane twice. Don Thomson Jr. took Chevy in 2007 and 2010. Kerry Micks (2008) and Andrew Ranger (2009) drove Fords to the win. And Steckly (2011) and Kennington (2012) took Dodge to the winner’s circle in each of the last two years.

DELAWARE, Ontario, Canada – He may be a part-time competitor on the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, but Pete Shepherd III sure makes the most of his opportunities.
Shepherd took the lead from J.R. Fitzpatrick on Lap 150 and held on through three restarts over the final 50 circuits to take the checkered flag in Saturday’s EMCO 200 at Delaware Speedway.
The triumph marked Shepherd’s fourth career victory. The Brampton, Ont., native has found Victory Lane four years in a row now, despite making just 17 starts during that span. However, going up against the full-time teams wasn’t quite as hard as it appears given the right circumstances according to Shepherd.
“Tonight, it really wasn’t that bad. The car was awesome,” said the driver of the No. 7 National Exhaust/Diamond Material Handling Dodge. “When you have a car like that, you just need to make it to the end of the race. We knew if we could stay out of trouble early on that we could race for the win at the end.”
It also marked Shepherd’s first win at Delaware, where his previous best finish in three starts on the venerable half-mile oval was fifth on two occasions.
Shepherd, who led a race-high 74 laps, had to deal with several challengers down the stretch, but none more so than Fitzpatrick.
“J.R. is one of the best in the business and he definitely had me concerned on those restarts,” Shepherd said. “He raced me clean and I want to thank him for that. He and I have a mutual respect for each other. It was a great night.”
Fitzpatrick settled for second place as once again a win on an oval eluded the championship contender. Seven of his eight series career wins have come on road courses and his lone win on a circle track came in July 2007 at Motoplex Speedway in Vernon, B.C. Nevertheless, Fitzpatrick and the No. 84 Equipment Express Chevrolet team was upbeat at the end of the night after a rough go in the season opener produced a finish near the rear of the field.
“It’s not exactly what we came here for, but in a way it was,” Fitzpatrick said. “We were pretty far back in the points, so second is pretty good and we led a lap (to pick up the one-point bonus).”
He echoed Shepherd’s sentiments on the final laps.
“I could’ve punted him, but I have too much respect for him to do that,” Fitzpatrick stated. “Down the stretch his car got better and better. I can’t thank my guys enough for a great race car tonight.”
Steve Mathews crossed the line in third for a series career-best finish after being among the leaders all evening.
“We didn’t have the car at the start, but we had some adjustability built into it and we were able to use that to our advantage,” said the pilot of the No. 15 Bill Mathews Motors Ford.
At one point late in the race Mathews found himself in the middle of a three-wide battle with D.J. Kennington and Ron Beauchamp Jr. on a track not exactly built for that type of racing. Beauchamp seemingly came out the loser in that battle and made his feelings known after the race by confronting Mathews.
“To Beauchamp, I have to say sorry about that, but I was in the middle and along for the ride,” Mathews stated. “There wasn’t much I could do.”
Kennington, who was in search of his fourth Canadian Tire Series win on his home track, finished fourth followed by Martin Roy in fifth. Noel Dowler, Larry Jackson, Hugo Vannini, Dave Connelly and Joey McColm brought home the remainder of the top-10 finishers in the second race on the 2013 slate.
Kennington took over the top spot in the point standings after L.P. Dumoulin experienced mechanical problems early in the race and limped to a 19th-place finish. Jeff Lapcevich is second six points in back of the leader followed by Jason Hathaway in third just seven tallies off the pace.
The EMCO 200 will air on TSN on Sunday, June 23 at 1 p.m. ET and on RDS2 on Monday, July 8 at 9 p.m.
The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will return to action with the Clarington 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on June 22 in Bowmanville, Ont.

Go Mopar!!! I hope the Challengers continue to win every race this season.

And heck with the noting of the Spec engine. As long as a Mopar is in the winners circle, it doesn't matter to 98% of race fans.

I don't know who you attend races with, but 98% of the race fans that I meet (the guys, anyway) not only care about what engine powers the cars, but also know some tech specs on the motors. A Mopar powered by a "Brand C" engine is not a Mopar. It is a "Brand C" race car dressed up to look like a Mopar. A good analogy is meeting a good looking woman at a bar and later finding out that she is a guy in drag. Race fans that care about the engines and finding out that the Mopars they see racing have "Brand C" motors can only conclude that the Chrysler motors are either lacking in performance, availability, or reliability - not good advertising for the company's products. Cheering for "Brand C" racecars dressed up like Mopars on a Mopar fan site (like this one is supposed to be) is a real embarrasment, imo, and sets true Chrysler race car supporters up for ridicule and derision.

Maybe if you heard "That Mopar sure runs good...........must be the Chevy engine under the hood" as often as I have, you'd be more concerned about learning who is racing with real Mopar power. It's the first question that I ask for race cars in any series that allows or encourages spec motors.

I have no reason to argue with you, I know you won't consider anything I say.

But, you and I are enthusiasts and we spend time with enthusiasts. The casual fan only looks at the decals on the hood. This has been discussed multiple times.

We have previously backed this up by using TORC as an example and even MoparNorm had mentioned that in the past they had put a Chevy body on a car with a Mopar engine to get around tech issues... The majority of the fans in the stands never knew the car wasn't GM powered.

While I agree that the spec engine program has advantages and disadvantages, seeing a picture of a Challenger in victory lane as I scroll thru Sports News on the web is very satisfying. The headlines simply say a Dodge Challenger driven by Pete Shepard won the race. There is NOTHING mentioned of spec engines anywhere but here.

Had Allpar not taken the time to search who had what engine, we would not have know the difference... Just like with TORC.

As I have stated before, I understand your position and I agree to a certain point, but you are ignoring part of the big picture because you simply do not want to see it.

Now lets move on, a Dodge did win the race and hopefully a Dodge will win the next one!
