Steckly wins again at Autodrome St-Eustache
ST-EUSTACHE, Que. (July 28, 2014) – Scott Steckly is tough to beat when the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series goes to Quebec’s Autodrome St-Eustache. Steckly won for the fourth time in his last six attempts at the 4/10-mile oval when he captured the National 250.
