J.R. Fitzpatrick did everything he could. L.P. Dumoulin did what he needed. The result was Dumoulin was crowned the champion of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 Saturday, while Fitzpatrick walked away with the winner's trophy for the Pinty's 250 at Kawartha Speedway.

Final margin: Three points. Dumoulin qualified 15th and finished ninth in the Pinty's 250. It was enough for him to edge Fitzpatrick for the title after the latter won the pole award and led the most laps en route to his third victory of the season. Fitzpatrick led three times for 171 laps, including the final 78. A late caution gave Scott Steckly one more shot with seven to go, but Fitzpatrick pulled away to win by .229 seconds. It was all for naught, though, as a 100-lap green flag run in the middle of the race left just 10 cars on the lead lap and all but ensured Dumoulin the title. He entered the race with a 16-point lead and needed to only finish 11th or better to claim the championship.
