Ottawa driver Philip Major records second top 10 of the year

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- Philip Major had built up his confidence with a strong run in round 5 of the Formula BMW USA Championship in Montreal on Saturday, and on Sunday -- round 6 -- his confidence and speed paid off with an eighth place finish -- his best finish of the year.

"I was attacking more, right from the start," Major said after the race. Starting from 15th on the grid, Major had moved up to 11th when a safety car period brought the pack back together. "On the restart, there was another accident and I drove through the debris," Major said.

It came down to the last lap and Major put on a gutsy move around the outside of the hairpin to wind up 8th. "I think it is a great result for the entire Atlantic Racing Team," Major said. "We improve each time out. I can' t wait for Indy next week."

Major will leave for Indianapolis on Tuesday for rounds 7 and 8 which runs with the US Grand Prix.
