JOLIET, Illinois (August 27, 2010) - Despite posting the seventh fastest time overall in the one-hour "happy hour" session for the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards Friday morning, Patrick Sheltra and his Sheltra Motorsports believe they have a contending car for today's Ansell Protective Gloves 150 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Yesterday, Sheltra, in his No. 60 Sheltra Motorsports Toyota Camry maneuvered the sixth fastest time by posting a lap of 31.312 seconds or 172.458 miles per hour in the short one hour and twenty minute practice run. This morning under cooler track conditions, the 24-year old delivered his fastest lap with a time of 30.745 seconds at 175.638 miles per hour, a half-second improvement for the Mooresville North Carolina's based team fastest lap yesterday.

"Our Sheltra Motorsports Toyota Camry was pretty good but there was a lot of traffic our there during our two mock qualifying runs. It is what it is though. I was overall pleased with the way the car felt this morning though. I'll debrief with the team and we'll be ready for qualifying and the race later today."
