Gabi DiCarlo Races Way to First Top Ten Finish

KANSAS CITY, MO. (April 25, 2008) - Gabi DiCarlo picked the right time to show everyone why she has been picked to drive the Great Clips Racing Toyota Camry for Stringer Motorsports. With the team struggling with some bad luck this season Gabi drove the Toyota powered rocket from the 23 starting position to as high as 3rd and contended with the leaders late in the race. It was an impressive run, as the ARCA/REMAX series regular finished the very fast Kansas Speedway's Kansas Lottery 150 Grand in the 9th position and garnered her first series top ten.

"This was by far the best race car I have ever had in any series that I've competed in", said DiCarlo. "I can't thank Doug Stringer, (owner of Stringer Motorsports) Barry Dodson (Crew Chief) and the whole team enough."

"I wish I could say I'm surprised how well she did but after working with her in the first couple of races I really expect her to run like this," said Crew Chief Barry Dodson. "She's a real talent."

Team owner Doug Stringer would say, " It's was a bittersweet day for the team as we learned of the passing of Roy Gundrum, father of Mark Gundrum ARCA/REMAX Series VP of Marketing, and great friend of the team. Our prayers go out to Mark and his family."
