252 views

He's won four races in the last six visits.

Scott Steckly knows his way to Victory Lane in St-Eustache. 

Winless in his first five starts of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 season, Steckly returned to a track where he's won three of the previous five series events. Make that four of six.

The Milverton, Ontario, native raced to his 16th career victory in Saturday's National 250 from Autodrome St-Eustache. Steckly now has four wins and top fives in all six career starts at the flat .4-mile oval.

Eighteen-year-old Alex Guenette crossed the line second, followed by L.P. Dumoulin, Anthony Simone and Jeff Lapcevich. 

Noel Dowler, Mark Dilley, Andrew Ranger, D.J. Kennington and J.R. Fitzpatrick rounded out the top 10.

Rookie Alex Labbe won his first series pole award in qualifying earlier in the day in just his seventh career start. Labbe led the field to green but was quickly overtaken by Steckly on the backstretch. Labbe stayed close early on, but ultimately had to withdraw from the event due to problems with his suspension. 

The event was slowed by six caution flags. 

The National 250 will air on TSN on Sunday, Aug. 3 at 11 a.m. ET and on RDS2 on Saturday, Aug. 9, at 1:30 p.m. 

After completing four events in a span of 21 days, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 will take a one-week break before heading to Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, for the JuliaWine.com Le 50 Tours at Circuit de Trois-Rivieres on Aug. 9-10.
