One word to describe Justin Allgaier winning in Montreal, "speechless". Another word, "justice". Every year I seem to look forward to watching the Nationwide Series drivers racing in Montreal because its you know its going to be a wild race, but even I was surprised by this one. All throughout the race, I was watching Danica Patrick really battle hard with the leaders for a top spot position and really thought today might have been her day, but sadly no. At the same time, I was surprised by all of the pit strategy going on including Elliott Sadler pitting from the back as early as lap 2. I knew fuel mileage was going to be an issue.
But as the race wear on, I watched as #22-Jacques Villenuve continue to led the way and battle with his teammate Sam Hornish Jr. as well as even get desperate at times and punt Alex "Tag" for the led with several laps to go. It sure looked like that #22 was unstoppable in trying to win at Circuit Gilles Villenuve. But fuel mileage and a few late race cautions including two G-W-C finishes led to a hiccup on the final lap where Justin Allgaier would take advantage, moving Villenuve aside and driving away to take the victory in a wild Montreal Nationwide race. Congrats to Justin Allgaier, hell of a win. Damn can NASCAR put a Cup Series race in Montreal too?
And Jacques Villenuve was just left wondering what could have been. As you can tell I'm not a fan of Jacques Villenuve and I believe he got exactly what he deserved, no victory. I just can't feel bad for a driver that doesn't give a damn about his competitors and will wreck anyone to win.
