Jean-Francois Dery of Quebec City, Quebec wins the Red Bear 100 at Autodrome Montmagny after a fierce battle with eventual third place finisher Donald Theetge. Justin Holtom led for the earlier stages of the race before Theetge took over. Theetge and Dery then fought for the lead, rubbing fenders multiple times. Dery held the lead through five late cautions while battling Theetge. Eventual runner-up finisher Trampas Demers got by Theetge in the final laps.
Dery was chased to the line by Demers, Theetge, Karl Allard, and Michael Lavoie rounding out the top five. Alexandre Gingras, Patrick Laperle, Jacques Poulin, Eric St-Gelais and Patrick Hamel complete the top ten.
