September 4, 2017. Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) drivers Larry Jackson and Joey McColm were two of the most popular attractions during round number 11 of the NASCAR Pinty’s series this past weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP). Both for their on track performance and for two of the most striking cars in the field.
Larry Jackson once again piloted the #8 Wonder Bread Dodge, a replica from the classic comedy “Talladega Nights”. McColm would be back behind the wheel debuting the #25 MAXIMUM Tools Dodge and it’s sharp black and grey paint scheme.
“The design came together quickly and it turned out even better than we expected,” said driver and CBRT General Manager Joey McColm.
While practice and qualifying took place under pleasant conditions on Saturday, the 51-lap race Sunday began with a very wet track after morning rain showers. And racing in the rain was something new for McColm.
“I’ve never raced in the rain before” he stated. “Those first few laps were pretty intense and I learned a lot really quickly following others with more experience in the wet conditions” he added.
As the race went on the track conditions dried out and the #25 MAXIMUM Tools team made the switch back to traditional slick tires. With the driver in more comfortable conditions his performance picked up too. “The car kept getting better and using what I learned throughout the race the lap times kept getting better. My fastest lap was the second last lap,” stated McColm.
Larry Jackson also had a productive day in the #8 Wonder Bread Dodge gaining six positions during the race.
This race will be broadcast on TSN5 Saturday September 9th at 2:30PM ET.
Look for the CBRT drivers on track next this coming Saturday September 9th at the Autodrome St. Eustache in St. Eustache, Quebec.
