Gabi DiCarlo Solid at the Rock

DENVER, NC (April 19, 2009) - Gabi DiCarlo continued her string of impressive early season runs with a strong performance at the ARCA RE/MAX Carolina 200 in Rockingham, North Carolina. DiCarlo started 24th and was able to fight through the fast field to finish 14th. The race was almost over before it started for DiCarlo as during the initial drop of the green flag the 40 car field bunched up and DiCarlo was almost spun from behind, while she was able to continue the impact did cause damage to the Great Clips Toyota Camry. DiCarlo gathered the injured racer under her and set out for the front of the pack and with the help of a very quick pit stop by the Great Clips crew she was able to gain positions both on the track and on pit road.

"It took some searching but I finally was able to find a fast line around the track," said DiCarlo. "The weather changed and for most of the race I was really tight but the last seventy laps the car really came in"

DiCarlo will now switch seats and climb aboard The Great Clips Racing NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Toyota Tundra and head to Kansas Speedway for the running of the O'reilly Auto Parts 250 live on SPEED April 25th at 6:30pm ET.
