Quebec race-car driver Andrew Ranger completely dominated the competition for his fourth career win on Sunday at the Dickies 200, the third race in the NASCAR-Canadian Tire series.
Ranger, of Roxton Pond, Que., took the lead on the 39th lap at Mosport race track east of Toronto and never looked back.
He finished 6.6 seconds ahead of runner-up Anthony Simone.
It was the largest margin of victory in the history of the Canadian NASCAR circuit.
Ranger was the best man on the track from start to finish on the weekend.
He had the best time in the two practice sessions, won the pole position in qualifying and led for 31 of 51 laps in Sunday's race.
The fourth race of the NASCAR-Canadian Tire series goes on July 11 at the St-Eustache Autodrome.
