Canadian NASCAR: Alex Guenette becomes Rookie of the Year

Quebec driver Alex Guenette has won the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series’ Rookie of the Year despite finishing 17th at the season finale presented at Kawartha Speedway on Sunday.

For his first time on the small oval, Guenette qualified 20th for the Pinty’s 250 and had to work quite hard if he wanted to move upfront.

The 17-year-old driver was not help by a poor team strategy which made him run almost 235 of the 250 laps on the same set of right tires. An inspection after the race also revealed that his car was leaking oil which did not help.
