The Race
The much-anticipated return of Canard was nothing short of amazing as he posted a second place finish in his qualifying heat race.

With four laps remaining he made his move to take over the lead, which he held until the final lap when he was passed and finished second—a remarkable performance for a young man who a year ago suffered a broken back that nearly ended his career.
