NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race weekend at St Eustache was a wash out!

'Rain, rain, go away, at least come back after the race!' Perhaps similar chanting was heard throughout the weekend inside the St Eustache paddock area for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race. For the second time this weekend, the second event of Canada's premier stock car racing league will be delayed. This time, NASCAR and the short track of St Eustache, Quebec has been forced by weather to relinquish the #2 race of the season to the Mosport road course race for June 14th. According to the Autodrome St Eustache's website and, July 5th is tentatively scheduled as substituting for the activities on this weekend's rain out.

The rain postponement of the National Kodak 250 came with extreme opposition from a hardworking crew at Autodrome St Eustache. As rain stopped falling later Sunday morning, track officials succeeded in drying the 4/10 paved oval for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series cars only practice section. Jason Hathaway in his #3 Dodge Avenger clocked the fastest time with Alex Tagliani(committed to running his first full-time for Jacobs Racing as teammate to Andrew Ranger) and Cayuga winner Scott Steckly behind him. However, the rain returning following this track section rendered the National Kodak 250 cancelled for the weekend.
