July 16, 2013 , Windsor, Ontario - Scott Steckly stood atop the winner’s podium Saturday night and breathed a sigh of relief. At the wheel of his No. 22 Canadian Tire Dodge, he won the A&W Cruisin' The Dub 300 in Vernon, B.C. - his first win since September of 2011.

“We didn’t win at all last season and you begin to wonder if you’re ever going to win again,” Steckly said.” To win here at Vernon is great … We just want to keep the momentum going.”

The race was the first of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1’s West Coast swing. Held at Vernon’s Motoplex Speedway and Event Park, it was a 300-lap bout dominated by Dodge entries. All but one of the Top 10 cars were from Dodge, with Steckly leading the charge.

The series takes only a short break this week, before heading to Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon, Sask. Wednesday for the Velocity Prairie Thunder presented by Bayer CropScience.

Currently, the Top 5 drivers in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series’ 2013 points standings all drive Dodge cars and are in a heated battle for top spot. Just 20 points separate the No. 90, Batteries Expert/Gamache/Veloce Dodge driven by Martin Roy in 5th place and L.P. Dumoulin and his No. 47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare Dodge atop the leader board.
