Laperle Wins Montmagny 100

Montmagny, QC – St. Denis, QC’s Patrick Laperle makes it two in a row with a win in the Montmagny 100 at Autodrome Montmagny on Saturday, May 29. Laperle, who earned the season opening win at Autodrome St-Eustache last weekend, started in the 16th position and worked his way through the field to the lead on lap 24.

The 2007 Série ACT Castrol Champion would lead the rest of the way while holding off Karl Allard and Daniel Descoste for the win. Allard came home second followed by Descoste in third. Alex Labbe took fourth while Jonathan Desbiens earned his first career Série ACT Castrol top five with a fifth.

Ontario’s Jonathan Urlin took sixth followed by Jean-François Déry, Martin Latulippe, Patrick Cliche and Stephane Durand rounded out the top ten.

The 100 lap event took 1 hour and 44 minutes including one red flag for an issue with the track lighting and eleven other cautions.

The 2009 Série ACT Castrol Champion Donald Theetge finished 18th after being involved in a mid race caution while running near the front. He would return after the wreck but ended up 16 laps down.

The Série ACT Castrol will compete in their third event of the 2010 season next Saturday, June 5 at Autodrome Chaudiere. It will be the first 150 lap race of the season.
