Nascar Canadian Tire Series - Canadian Tire Jumpstart 100

The Nascar Canadian Tire Series drivers said that the track would be slippery after 5 laps and many figured that they would crash within those five laps, then they would continue crashing every five laps. I think that they did keep to that schedule and still managed to finish the race. Andrew Ranger (passing by the Princes' Gates above) in the #27 Dodge Dealers of Quebec car won the event, followed by Jason Bowles in the #11 Rusty Wallace Racing Experience car and in third place was DJ Kennington of the #17 Castrol Edge car. Andrew leaves the Nascar paddock with TSN's Tod Lewis, below.

The track is narrow and the concrete barriers keep the drivers guessing on how close they can get to the edges of the track. Add in the slick racing conditions and drivers inexperienced in the Toronto street course and the collisions add up.

More pictures after the jump.

Fans of NASCAR line up in the Thunder Alley autograph tent on Saturday. The drivers sat on two sides of the tent and signed pictures, hats and shirts as the crowds passed along a path.

At the end of the line was Jason Hathaway of the #3 Vortex Dodge Avenger. Jason is co sponsored by two primary companies - Rockstar Energy Drink and Snap-On. Team manager Jamie Hakonson of Fast Eddie Racewear sponsors both Jason and Alex Tagliani of the IndyCar Racing League. Jamie is in the pits during the Canadian Tire Jumpstart race (left, picture at bottom).
