de Silvestro takes Trois-Rivieres Atlantics win.

“We had a great start,” Summerton said, “In fact, I think I had a better start than the two in front of me, but the problem was where we were starting. We were already on the inside of the track and I had nowhere to go to my right and, of course, to the left was John, so I kind of got boxed in there. It was kind of disappointing, because it's one of the few starts where I've had a really good one on everybody else.

"After all that, we had a little bit of a mistake in the middle of the stint, but then we were able to run the fastest lap, so it was really good. The car felt great. It just stinks that we couldn't have been there for qualifying on pole, because I think we had a car to win the race.”

Tonis Kasemets picked up his fourth top-five result in his past five starts with a fourth-place run in his #35 Polestar entry, moving back into fifth in the standings, while defending series champion Markus Niemela rounded out the top five for Jensen MotorSport. Frankie Muniz and James Winslow were next up, while Niemela's team owner, Eric Jensen, was a late addition to the entry but walked away with the $2000 'Hard Charger' bonus after moving from eleventh to eighth.
