Andrew Ranger is 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Champion

For the second time in his three season career in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, Roxton Pond, Quebec's Andrew Ranger is named the tour's points champion by winning the Komatsu 300 at Riverside International Speedway. Him and his #27 Walmart Ford Fusion took the lead from Jeff Lapcevich at lap 252 cruising to the checkered flag. Taking maximum points with the top position, Ranger clinches the 2009 crown as one race remains to be run at Kawartha Speedway on September 26th.

Andrew Ranger had previously taken the 2007 championship in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series through a title chase based largely on consistent top 5 race finishes. For 2009, benefiting from a gaining knowledge base around stock car racing as well as some very fast #27 Ford Fusions prepared by crew chief Billy Burns has given Ranger, has allowed him to win the championship with flat-out dominance. With 6 wins on the season, balanced with 3 each on ovals and road courses, Andrew Ranger has also finished in the top 10 in every event for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series for the year.

A possible window into Andrew Ranger's future, as well as gaining recognition in the Canadian series, some year has also been highlighted by a 3rd place finish in the Nascar Nationwide series in the NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
