Kerry Micks wins the Clarington 200 Father's Day CASCAR Super Series race at Mosport International Raceway
BOWMANVILLE, ON - CASCAR Super Series veteran Kerry Micks won Sunday afternoon's Clarington 200 presented by Canadian Shield Anti Crime Response Corporation at Mosport International Raceway. The #02 Trailers by Jim Bray-sponsored Ford Taurus driver took the lead on lap 32 of the 51-lap race with a daring pass on leader Peter Gibbons as the field came up to speed for a re-start. Once out front, the Mt. Albert, ON resident held the top spot until the checkered flag.
Second-place went to Jeff Lapcevich of Caistor Centre, ON. The Tim Hortons / EMCEA Transport Chevy driver made a superb pass on Scott Steckly on the final lap to secure the runner-up spot, and was just 1.6-seconds behind Micks at the end.
Steckly's (ERB Transport Dodge Charger) third-place finish, coupled with his win in the season opener at Barrie Speedway in May, was enough to move him to the top of the unofficial CASCAR Super Series point standings after two events. Former points leader Don Thomson Jr. experienced engine trouble and finished 23rd at Mosport.
The Clarington 200 was slowed by three cautions for a total of 15 laps. A field of 31 racers participated in Sunday's feature race. Polesitter J.R. Fitzpatrick set the fastest lap of the feature event for the second outing in a row. The Milwaukee Tools Chevy Monte Carlo driver led from laps 14 to 20, but fell to seventh at the end. Veteran racer Jim Lapcevich (EMCEA Transport / Tim Hortons Chevy) passed Dave Whitlock (NTN Bower Dodge Charger) on the final lap to secure fourth place.
Super Series rookie Jason Hathaway was the Hard Charger of the race. The Snap On Tools Dodge Charger racer started 31st and finished eighth, to advance 23 positions during the Clarington 200.
The CASCAR Super Series returns to action with the MOPAR Canada Day Weekend presented by the Dodge Dealers of Ontario on July 1 & 2 at Barrie Speedway.
