“I said it and I repeat it, it felt good,” he says. The last few seasons have been difficult and getting back on the top step of the podium has been a boost amazing. But you know how it works, you’re only as good as your last race. Now we must continue!”

The small world of the NASCAR Canada series stops in Avondale, Newfoundland, on Saturday. This will be the first of three events in the Maritimes, with the next two scheduled the following weekend, this time in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.

“This is our third visit to Avondale and I can’t say that Newfoundland has brought me luck so far,” Ranger continues. I remember both times I had a fast car, but had to retire due to mechanical problems. But there, the vibe is good and we arrive here with confidence.”

Only 16 cars are expected on Avondale’s 3/8-mile oval. If there is one destination that is not unanimous among the teams in the NASCAR Canada series, it is this one.

“The competition will still be strong. The Camirands, Dumoulins and Lacroix will be there. There will be more space on the track, but it won’t be easy.”

The season is still young with only two events completed, but Ranger has already started looking at the driver rankings.

“I am six points behind Marc-Antoine (Camirand), who is first. We won’t start talking about the championship, but we don’t want to get away from our heads…”

From the Xfinity Series

Since the start of the season, Andrew Ranger has continued to send flowers to the people at Innovation Autosport, who are preparing his car. He had no choice but to continue in the same direction just before he took the plane to Newfoundland on Friday morning.

“It’s crazy, but the car is always spotless, the trailer is always super clean, even the tools are always stored perfectly. These are details that give confidence to a pilot. In any case, it gives me confidence.”

Ranger will go so far as to say he hasn’t seen such professionalism since his days racing in the Xfinity Series from time to time.

“That gives you an idea!”, he finishes, with a genuine smile on his face.
