Simone Battles On The Streets of Toronto

Written by  TL Sports & Entertainment on Sunday, 14 July 2019 18:19

TORONTO, ON (July 13, 2019)- Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) and driver Anthony Simone battled to their best finish of the year in the #1 Silverline Tools Dodge during round four of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series this past Saturday at Exhibition Place in Toronto as part of the Toronto Indy weekend.

In a hard-fought race Simone claimed a sixth-place finish.

During practice the Simone was consistently quick during the #1 Silverline Tools Dodge and would post the fifth quickest time during the afternoon qualifying session.

“Anthony really showed what we’re capable of” said CBRT General Manager Joey McColm. “Having a good starting spot is important in Toronto” he added.

Anticipating similar track conditions, the CBRT crew made a few small adjustments to the #1 Silverline Tools Dodge prior to the race hoping to improve the car further. A significant rain storm delayed the start of the race and also changed the track conditions.

The #1 Silverline Tools Dodge would drop back a few positions in the early going but Simone rebounded and hustled the car back toward the front. In the late stages the racing got a little aggressive and contact in the late stages did some damage to the body panels, but Simone continued to work hard and scored a sixth-place result.

“Anthony got bounced a couple of times late in the race but kept things under control” said McColm. “Great job by everyone, the change in conditions caught us a bit, but we still picked up a good result. Now we can start building some momentum, this is a nice boost for the team” he added.

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series now heads west to Wyant Group Raceway in Saskatoon, SK for a double header on Wednesday July 24th.
