Canadian Tire proved to be a race many fans found entertaining. A decisive battle between 6 different drivers in terms of the lead put the crowd on their feet. James Richardson ended up being the victor in the race, giving Turner Performance the run they truly deserves, especially after heartbreak at Road America. It keeps Richardson as the winningest driver in the series.

The points battle has been getting closer. TJ Martin and Jake West are 2 points apart from each other, but Hannah Allen has placed herself in the mix, and she's 9 points back from obtaining the points lead. The others have been gaining some ground on the top 2 in points, and the championships is just as intense as it has been as we reach the halfway point of the season.

Watkins Glen is another road course that many road ringers will see as an opportunity to gain some ground in the championship. Alex Benyacko and Richardson both see this as a golden opportunity to gain some ground. Hannah Allen has been solid at the road courses, and she's one of the few looking to try and find some more success at the road courses. Though originally on the Sony Cup Series schedule, the Hardee's National Series has decided to keep the track for the weekend, deeming it as "a track that many fans and drivers alike have looked forward to."

With the championship hunt getting closer, will more contenders jump into the fray, we'll have to wait and see how things will pan out.

A hotlap video has been uploaded to help fellow HNS drivers on what they need to do in order to succeed. However, the test car is on a much different setup, and the engine is limited compared to an average HNS car, but it showcases the sectors and areas in getting better.

Tommy Turbo(President/CEO of CM Racing): "Man what an up and down race for the CM Racing team... Super proud of the whole team, getting 3 of the 4 drivers in the Top 6, but man we could have had all 4 drivers in the Top 10, and maybe even a win, if it wasn't for a few certain lap cars... Still, a really solid run overall."

Chris Dodd(39th): "...Well that sucked, being forced 4-wide at Watkins Glen is never good..."

Pretty cool for Aidan to get his first victory. TJ had a good, consistent race, while James got dumped coming out of turn 6. Nice fun race to relax to in the home state.
