EDMONTON, Alta. Danieal Manning Jersey . (July 22, 2012) –
D.J. Kennington charged into the lead in a wild scramble at the finish of the
Edmonton 100 at the Edmonton City Centre Airport on Sunday to score a record
fourth consecutive victory in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil
1. He gained the lead when the first and second-place cars of Scott Steckly and
J.R. Fitzpatrick came together on a restart as the field headed for a
green-white-checkered finish. Kennington – the 2010 series champion from of St.
Thomas, Ontario – led the final two laps for his 15th career series win, which
puts him in a tie with Andrew Ranger for the most career series wins. Jason
Hathaway was second. Steckly, the pole-sitter who had dominated the event,
managed to recover to finish fourth behind Trevor Seibert. Martin Roy was fifth.
Kerry Micks, Andrew Ranger, Ron Beauchamp Jr., Jarred Whissell and Ryley Seibert
rounded out the top 10. Fitzpatrick was unable to limp his car back around after
the incident and finished 17th, two laps down. Steckly, who established a track
record in qualifying on Saturday, had dominated the event – dominated the event
as it appeared the two-time series champion might gain his first career win on a
road course. He maintained a considerable margin for much of the race over
Fitzpatrick, leading by more than four seconds at times. That margin was erased,
however, when the caution flew in the closing stages of the event. An incident
involving Andrew Ranger on an initial restart led to another caution and the
subsequent restart when Steckly and Fitzpatrick came together going through the
technical Turn 2 area. The race was slowed due to caution just two times for
four laps. It marked the first race for the series on the 2.256-mile, 13-turn
Edmonton course. Previous series events from 2007 to 2010 were staged on a
1.96-mile layout at the airport. In the championship point standings, Kennington
extended his lead to 35 points over Scott Steckly, who moved into the second
position. Ranger remains in third place – 37 points in back of the leader –
while Fitzpatrick fell to fourth. The Edmonton 100 will premiere on TSN2 on
Saturday, July 28 at 3 p.m. ET and on RDS2 on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 10 p.m. ET.
The Edmonton event, the third of five road course races this year, was part of a
three-race swing by the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series through Western Canada that
concludes with the Velocity Prairie Thunder presented by Bayer Crop Science at
Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon, Sask., on Wednesday, July 25. J.J.

playing cards in the month since they were ousted from the Quebec Major Junior
Hockey League playoffs. They practised and practised some more, worked on
conditioning and played an exhibition game against their alumni. As host of the
2012 Mastercard Memorial Cup, the Cataractes still had work to do getting ready
for the 10-day tournament that opens Friday at the Bionest Centre. The Cats face
the Western Hockey league champion Edmonton Oil Kings in the opening game.
“There was lots of hard work to be done,” Veilleux said. “We needed to practice
hard—take the body, 1-on-1 drills, 2-on-2. Do everything a game situation
presents.” Shawinigan finished second overall to the defending Memorial Cup
champion Saint John Sea Dogs this season, but were upset in Game 7 of the second
round of playoffs by the Chicoutimi Sagueneens on April 17. That left 31 days
without a real game to play. “A week ago we had a game against some of our old
players,” said Veilleux. “(Buffalo Sabres captain) Jasson Pominville was here
and some players from our 2009 team. Matt Schaub Womens Jersey. “It was not as
physical (as a real game), but for the system, we were able to do everything we
will do in a game.” The Cataractes, the only team remaining from the original
QMJHL when it was founded in 1969, are built around the defence, including the
top pair of Brandon Gormley and Morgan Ellis. As a team, they allowed the fewest
goals in the league. But there is speed and skill up front from right winger
Kirill Kabanov, centre Michael Chaput and left winger Yannick Veilleux. Winger
Anton Zlobin was their regular season leader with 76 points, including 40 goals.
They also have Montreal Canadiens prospect Michael Bournival, who was held to
one goal 11 playoff games after putting up 56 points in 44 regular season tilts.
And they will have their home crowd at the 4,125-seat Bionest Centre, the still
new-looking rink they moved into three seasons ago. “We cant wait for the puck
to drop,” said Veilleux. “We have great fans and we know theyll support us to
the maximum. ’ ’ ’
