Ranger wins the championship

Andrew Ranger became this Sunday the first ever NASCAR Canadian Tire Series champion with a 6th place finish at Kawartha Speedway. Ranger's championship rival D.J. Kennington blew a motor on lap 98 which opened the door for Ranger to grab the championship. With that achievement, Ranger will be invited to the Toyota All-Star Showdown to be held at Irwindale Speedway on October 19-20. That race pits together the best drivers from NASCAR Development Series in a special showdown format.
