The Hurricanes Physiotherapy 200, the second playoff race in the Round-of-16 of the Canadian eMotorsports Network NASCAR Series, saw the Hurricanes eMotorsports driver claim his second win of the season, and punch his ticket to the Round-of-12 with the win; he joins Ryan Gibson who won last week at Darlington. The third driver to clinch his spot in the next round is Darcy Ford who now holds a 76-point cushion over the 13th place driver.
Rounding out the top five on Tuesday night was Darcy Ford, Chad Hyder, Scott Bailey and Ryan Gibson.
Stage-points continue to play a major role in the playoff standings as Ryan Gibson won both stages, adding an extra 20-points to the total he earned for finishing fifth; he also was the pole-sitter for the race.
The final race of the Round-of-16 is the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Night Race taking place next Tuesday, September 29 at the Bristol Motor Speedway.
The race to advance to the next round is red-hot as only nine points separate the drivers from 11th to 15th.
Daniel Cudmore currently holds the final playoff spot in twelfth, trailing Jacob Nelson in 11th by five-points. Michael Robinson (one-point), Jason Maluchnik (two-points) and Lee Campbell (four-points) sit 13th through 15th.
