Once again in an Ed Bennett-owned, UNION Insurance Group backed Chevrolet – the team first participated in two practice sessions. Following practice, came qualifying – where Dupuis logged the 7th fastest time of the day.
After an autograph session on Langley’s front stretch, the green flag waved at just after 8 PM. The team entered the race in a ‘conserve tires mode’ – and was following that strategy – until lap 45.
While running in 9th position on lap 45 – coming off of turn 2 – Renee was drilled in the left-rear nerf bar by LW Miller – causing her to spin. As several other cars were collected – Renee went down a lap trying to pull away from the wreck. Twice the car was brought to pit road – examining damage and making repairs. When the green flag waved on lap 49 – Renee was just exiting the pits and was over a half a lap behind the field. Dupuis ran the car hard – running lap times equal to the leaders – but, with no cautions, eventually went down another lap on the track.
