Race Results

Austin Cindric rebounded from a pit road penalty and then put the bumper to Kaz Grala, which sent him spinning, on the last lap to win Sunday's Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Cindric led the opening 31 laps, but a penalty on lap 32 for removing the gas can from his pit stall put him back in the pack. He was able to charge through the field and closed in on Grala before ultimately getting into the back of Grala on lap 64 en route to his first career win.

“I wanted to pass him clean because I’m all about that,” Cindric said. “I feel like this is what NASCAR racing is about. You have to win to make a playoff position. You can’t finish second. 

“Everyone (who has won at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) made the move in the last corner. I figured I might as well change that.”

Noah Gragson got by the spinning Grala to finish second.

“The 19 (Austin Cindric) was pretty fast there at the end," Gragson said. "I was giving it all I could. I knew I’m second, so just had a bad pit stop and I feel like it kind of hurt us a little bit. We just need a little bit more speed there at the end. The 33 (Kaz Grala) was pretty good and the 19 was pretty good. I really wanted to win this one bad for my guys."

Grala, who led 19 laps, got back going to finish third.

“He just drove right in there and used me as his brakes, turned me straight around and gave me no opportunity," Grala said. "Just a dirty move. I’ve got a lot of respect for him as a road course racer but lost a lot today."

Justin Haley, Ryan Truex, Johnny Sauter, Chase Brisoe, Parker Kligerman, Austin Wayne Self and Ben Rhodes completed the top-10 finishers.

The win was the 10th for Brad Keselowski Racing, which recently announced it will end operations at the conclusion of the 2017 season. Along with Cindric, Briscoe also clinched a playoff spot for BKR.
