Marc-Antoine Camirand Sets Punishing Pace to Score Dominant Victory in Edmonton

Marc-Antoine Camirand dominated Saturday’s BAYER 300 at Edmonton INternational Raceway, leading every lap, en route to his second win of 2023.

It’s very rare to see a NASCAR Pinty’s Series event that goes totally uncontested.

Though, in Saturday’s BAYER 300 at Edmonton International Raceway, Marc-Antoine Camirand had the field covered, easily, scoring his second NASCAR Pinty’s Series victory of the season, and the seventh of his career.

The 44-year-old driver started the 300-lap contest from the pole, after narrowly edging out championship points leader Treyten Lapceivch in qualifying, with the No. 20 appearing as the only car within earshot of the No. 96 GM Paille Chevrolet.

However, when Lapcevich suffered some mechanical gremlins prior to the green flag, which were resolved in time for the 22 Racing Team driver to start at the rear of the pack, things got much, much easier for Camirand.

The defending NASCAR Pinty’s Series champion continued to be the class of the field in the race’s opening stint, pulling away to a gap of more than a half-lap by the time the caution flew for a spin by Lapcevich, which trapped him a lap down.

Throughout the remainder of the event, Camirand continued to maintain the lead for a couple laps after the restart, only to pull away to an obscene margin by the time the run was interrupted with a caution flag.

At the end of 300 laps, only Camirand, Treyten Lapcevich, and LP Dumoulin remained on the lead lap, with a margin of victory clocking in at 11.810 seconds, the fourth-largest in the history of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.

Lapcevich, who was scheduled to start from the outside of the front row on Saturday, rebounded from a last-place starting spot and an early-race spin to finish in the runner-up spot, extending his points lead over second-place Kevin Lacroix – who finished Saturday’s event in fourth.

Alex Tagliani, winner of last weekend’s event at Exhibition Place, rounded out the top five. Donald Theetge, Thomas Nepveu, Brandon Watson, JP Bergeron, and Matthew Shirley rounded out the top-10.

Leaving Edmonton, the NASCAR Pinty’s Series will travel to Saskatoon for a doubleheader on Wednesday, July 26th at Sutherland Automotive Speedway. Treyten Lapcevich continues to lead the points, over Lacroix, Camirand, Dumoulin, and Tagliani.
