Take a bow Ron Fellows, take a bow Carlo Fidani, take a bow Myles Brandt.

The co-owners and the president of Canadian Tire Motorsports Park deserve at least as much after planning and executing the monstrously successful debut of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on Sunday.

And, oh, by the way, Chase Elliott won the inaugural Chevrolet Silverado 250 in the No. 94 Chevrolet, at 17, becoming the youngest winner in the history of the Truck series.

But it was the estimated 50,000 fans who packed every nook and cranny of the 750-acre facility on the eastern border of the Greater Toronto Area who were the real stars of the show.

At one point the line of cars going into the track stretched back more than five kilometres.

And boy, once inside the track, they were treated to a dandy race.
