(PASS) 150 lap feature on Sunday, May 21 at Autodrome Montmagny in Quebec. The Rowley, Mass driver started tail in the seventeen car field due to a weight mix up. Eddie Mac drove the Dave Lemieux owned Pro Stock/SLM through the stellar competition to post the fifth place run.

Eddie Mac posted the fastest time in both practices and was poised to compete for the win but a mix up at the scales forced the #17 to start in the rear with Eddie Mac saying, “We were a few pounds heavy on the left side when we went over the scales so we moved the weight around but we didn’t go back over the scales and that was our fault. It was too bad because the car was really fast and had a great shot to contend for the win.”
