Actually running, they are rather two rounds that took place, the rain had forced the organizers to interrupt the ordeal before resuming an hour later for a sprint of a few hundred rounds. In the end, Brad Keselowski has imposed his Dodge before the brothers Kyle and Kurt Busch.

For Keselowski, driver of the Penske prestigious stables for two years, it is an important success in terms of points (he still hopes to be part of the top twelve selected pilot to compete for the title at the end of the season), but also courage. Indeed, four days earlier, he had been the victim of a major accident during private testing on road track at Road Atlanta (Georgia), leaving road near 300 km / h when testing one its Dodge Sprint Cup. After a night in the hospital, Keselowski took the path Pocono. His mental strength as well as physical (one ankle was still bruised from the crash) was hailed by the NASCAR community.

Mid-Ohio was also the theater of a round of the IndyCar Series, won by Scott Dixon to Dario Franchitti. The driver quebecois Alex Tagliani has finished sixth.

For quebecois passionate, the appointment of the weekend was undoubtedly the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres. After two days of great weather and very exciting races in Canadian Touring Car and Formula 1600, the day of Sunday then messes all that rain is invited for tests Indy Lights and especially NASCAR Canadian Tire, the Featured race.

Expected by tens of thousands of supporters, the victory of a local driver has nearly occurred. After Andrew Ranger qualified on pole, but forced to pit to defog the windshield, it was Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, a native of Trois-Rivieres, who led the discussions for ten rounds. Very talented, however, would have to cede Dumoulin the front row Ontario's Robin Buck, flying a Dodge particularly well tuned for driving in the rain. Buck is therefore required before Ranger, back to the twenty-first instead. L.P.Dumoulin Complete the "Top 5". No less than 14 drivers competed quebecois this test, 33 starters.
