NORTH OF THE BORDER AGAIN
Grand Am Cup Action In Quebec

TROIS-RIVIERES, QUEBEC, CANADA - 08/05/2005 - Turner Motorsport returns to Le Circuit Trois-Rivieres this weekend for the seventh round of the 2005 Grand Am Cup season. At the close of Practice on Friday, Justin Marks and Bill Auberlen held the fastest time in their Baker Sox/H&R Springs/Turner Motorsport BMW M3. Will Turner and Don Salama have been the fastest BMWs in Friday's ST class practice. Qualifying sessions take place tomorrow morning.

Justin Marks improved to second in the overall points after a podium finish in last weekend's race at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. Marks and co-driver Bill Auberlen finished in second place in the #96 Baker Sox/H&R Springs/Turner Motorsport BMW M3. Marks will be gunning for his fifth pole position of the season during tomorrow's Qualifying.

Will Turner and Don Salama retained fourth place in the ST Championship by posting a fourth place result in last weekend's race at Barber driving the #95 H&R Springs/Borla Exhaust/Turner Motorsport BMW 330i. Both drivers are looking forward to this race as the torque of the BMW inline-6 should prove helpful around the Trois-Rivieres street circuit. They remain cautious, however, as the series-mandated weight of the car hurts them as much as the torque helps.

Steve Pfeffer and Tim Pappas are fifth in the overall points standings heading into this weekend. While contact and a penalty cost them in the last round, the duo have teamed up for four top ten finishes this year and remain a threat to the rest of the top five. They will be driving the #97 H&R Springs/Turner Motorsport BMW 330i.
