A quick note of congratulations goes out to Corvette Racing’s Ron Fellows who won the Nationwide Series NAPA 200 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal over the weekend. Fellows took an early pit stop and then gradually worked his way to the front. The race called 25 laps shy of 74 due to rain. Ron was driving the #5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet from Dale Earnhardt Jr’s JR Motorsports. This was his fourth career Nationwide Series victory and the first time he’s won a NASCAR race at Montreal.
Talking about the rain and track conditions, Ron said “That was difficult, we’ve had a little bit of that over in France with the Corvette at Le Mans. But this was good fun. Now I’ve got to make Dale Jr. let me run next week [when the Nationwide Series goes to Watkins Glen].”
Ron will be back in drivers seat come next weekend. Earnhardt is scheduled to race in the No. 5 Chevy in the Nationwide Series while Fellows will drive the No. 01 Chevrolet for Dale Earnhardt Inc. in the Sprint Cup race.
