A Fifth place finish for Jean-François Dumoulin in Jukasa

Pinty’s Fall Brawl 200

Yesterday on the Jukasa Motor Speedway oval, Jean-François Dumoulin, starting from 17th place, worked his way to the front of the pack in the #04 Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau / Groupe Bellemare / MIA car. Despite difficulties during the practice and qualifying sessions, the car improved in the last third of the 200-lap event, enabling Jean- François to complete several laps in second place. Jean-François fought determinedly among the leaders until a slow leak in the front right tire forced him to surrender several positions, but shrewd driving skills and strong resolve enabled him to defend his fifth-place finish.

By midday Saturday, the #04 Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau/ Groupe Bellemare / MIA team had modified most of the car’s settings due to considerable understeer. Additionally, during practice, Jean- François’ car sustained damage to the front left side when two competitors illegally made contact with the car as they exited pit lane.

“The #04 Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau / Groupe Bellemare / MIA team did exemplary work today. We came a long way; the pit stops were efficient and determination was present on every level. It was a competitive field and I am proud to have been able to compete with the race leaders, including my brother, Louis-Philippe,” said Jean-François Dumoulin. “The punctured tire slowed our pace just a few laps from the end when the podium was within our reach, but the team and I are pleased with our performance, it’s a good way to end the season.”

“Congratulations to both Dumoulin Compétition drivers, Spectra PremiumTM ambassador Jean-François and his brother Louis-Philippe, for their extraordinary race and making such good use of the NSCR100 radiator. The high-performance NSCR100 radiator is the result of a close collaboration between two teams, Dumoulin Compétition and Spectra Premium. It optimizes airflow, thereby improving on-track engine and overall car performance,” said Jason Best, Spectra Premium’s Senior Vice-President, Aftermarket. “We are very proud of the performance of the NSCR100 radiator in its first year of competition in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.”
