Mixed Results For Teammates Martin Roy and Isabelle Tremblay at Circuit ICAR

[media-credit name=”Todd Lewis” align=”alignright” width=”314″][/media-credit]When it came down to the end of the second event this year for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, Martin Roy had a breakthrough performance while teammate Isabelle Tremblay ran into mechanical difficulties.

Roy drove his No. 90 Veloce/Gamache Truck Centre Dodge to his first ever series top 10 finish after starting 21st.

“I’m very happy with the result today,” Roy says.  “The whole team is happy and now we are going to an oval track next and I’m more at home on the ovals so we’re hoping for more good results.”

He made his way steadily up through the field early in the race. He would get up to as high as sixth, though dropped back to 10th after his car substained significant damage to the left rear during the green-white-checkered finish.

He was looking for a successful day after finishing 18th in the last race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP).

Meanwhile, Tremblay drove her No. 07 Frank Lyman Design Dodge to a 25th place finish after mechanical difficulties. She finished 21st the week before at CTMP.

“Unfortunately that is how it goes sometimes in racing,” she says.  “You have a mechanical failure and there is nothing you can do about it”

She started the race in 11th after qualifying was rained out and ran strong early in the race amongst the front half of the field.

“I enjoyed running with some of the best racers in this series very much,” she comments.

Early in the race, she was suffer some damage after contact from another racer, putting her at the back of the field. She’d work her way back up to 12th before her car began to slow and forced her to make a pit stop at the halfway point. Her crew determined that she had broken a left axle.

There was some positive from the event for Tremblay, however, as she raised $12,000 for the CHU of St. Justine Children’s Hospital in Montreal with support from Promath and Arcopel.

“It’s nice to make a difference and seeing how much support we can generate,” she says.

Tremblay is hoping to have better runs as the season goes on as with how good her car has run, she feels it’ll be a good year.

“We’ve grown a great deal and I can see the improvement we’ve made in a short time and so can others,” she says.  “I am also very pleased to announce that Frank Lyman Design has increased their support of our program and we will be competing in a fifth race this season.”
