Patrick Sheltra Fifth Fastest In ARCA Practice At Texas Motor Speedway

FORT WORTH, Texas (April 15, 2010) - - In ARCA's coveted return to Texas Motor Speedway, Patrick Sheltra, driver of the No. 60 Recycling Services-Buffalo Wings & Rings Toyota Camry posted the fifth fastest time overall in the lone practice session for the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards Thursday afternoon.

Thursday's session marked the first time that Sheltra had practiced inside the top-five on a speedway in his four year ARCA tenure. Sheltra's time of 29.194 seconds at 184.970 miles per hour was just two tenths slower than practice winner Justin Mark's fastest run.

"We're really happy with practice," said the 23-year old rising star. "Jon (Wolfe, crew chief) and the guys adjusted and fine-tuned on the car during practice and it paid off when it counted the most. I'm extremely confident that we should be able to better our practice effort in qualifying and have a good run in tomorrow night's race."

Sheltra is scheduled to go out 33rd in Menards pole qualifying presented by Ansell. The late qualifying draw should be beneficial to the Indiantown, Florida native.
