Leads Every Lap En Route To 17th Canadian Tire Victory

Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Canada (July 11, 2015) – Scott Steckly didn’t leave any room for doubt and showed once again how good he can be on oval tracks.

Steckly became just the third driver in the history of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 to lead every lap in a win. Driving his No. 22 Canadian Tire Dodge to Victory Lane in the Alberta Has Energy 300 at Edmonton International Raceway, Tagliani became the first to accomplish the feat on an oval.

The Milverton, Ont., Canada, had to hold off defending series champion L.P. Dumoulin and Jason Hathaway in a five-lap sprint to the finish after the 10th caution flag of the race set up the late dash.

The three-time champion pushed his career win total to 17 and also increased his record for career laps led to 4,263.

D.J. Kennington finished fourth with Marc-Antoine Camirand fifth.

Andrew Ranger, the last driver to win after leading every lap (in 2013), came home sixth with Alex Tagliani and Joey McColm seventh and eighth. Rookie James Von Domselaar started his first career series race on the front row and finished a respectable ninth, with Gary Klutt rounding out the top 10.

The Alberta Has Energy 300 will air on TSN on Saturday, July 18 at 2:30 p.m. ET, and also on RDS2 on Friday, July 31 at 8 p.m.
