Pete Shepherd III keeps on showing up and he keeps on winning.

The Brampton, Ont., native isn't running for the championship in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1, but that hasn't stopped him from collection winner's trophies. He picked up his second straight Saturday night in the Clarington 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

The victory on the facility's half-mile oval was the second straight for Shepherd, who drove the No. 7 National Exhaust/Diamond Material Handling Dodge to Victory Lane last week at Delaware Speedway. It's Shepherd's fifth career win in 18 starts over the last four years.

Scott Steckly rebounded from a slow start to the season to finish second. The two-time series champion had finished 21st and 24th in his two previous races.

J.R. Fitzpatrick was third, followed by Jason Hathaway and Steve Mathews.

Martin Roy, L.P. Dumoulin, Jeff Lapcevich, Hugo Vannini and D.J. Kennington completed the top 10.

Kerry Micks was the fastest in qualifying and led a race-high 86 laps, but wound up 19th as ignition issues ended his nights after 146 laps.

The Clarington 200 will air on TSN on Sunday, June 30 at 1pm et/10am pt and on RDS on Friday, July 19 at 11pm et/8pm pt.

The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will return to the road course with the Jiffy Lube 100 presented by Snap-on at Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Quebec, on Sunday, July 7.
