Devon Powell and Terry Borcheller gave Powell Motorsport the win during the Mont-Tremblant 250, finishing over nine seconds ahead of the rest of the field in the No. 11 Cadillac CTS-V.
Doncaster Racing claimed second place, with Greg Wilkins and Robert Julien in the No. 91 Porsche 996. Rehagan Racing rounded out the podium, with the No. 58 Mustang Cobra SVT driven by David Shep and Kenny Wilden crossing the finish line in third.
At the start of the race, polesitter Anders Hainer spun the No. 04 Istook/Aines Motorsport Group Audi S4. The No. 4 Istook/Aines Motorsport Group Audi S4, with Gary Sheehan behind the wheel, took the lead.
The first caution of the race came out on the first lap for the No. 04 Audi. When the green flag flew again on lap five, Sheehan was followed by Powell in the No. 11 Cadillac and the No. 33 Unitech Racing Nissan 350Z.
The racing did not last long, as the second caution period began just eight laps later for a car stopped on course. Sheehan and Powell both took advantage of the time to pit for fuel, allowing Mike Cronin, Jr. to move into the lead in the Nissan.
When the race resumed just after 40 minutes since the start, Cronin, Jr. still led. He finally made his routine pit stop after an hour and 17 minutes of racing, and Stu Hayner got in the car.
Meanwhile, Wilkins was able to take over the lead in the Doncaster Porsche. It was only a brief lead, as he pitted two laps later and Julien got in the car. Powell then put the Cadillac at the front of the field.
