SHANE JANTZI QUALIFIES 15th FOR FREEDOM 100 AT INDY

Ayr, ON -- May 24, 2007: Shane Jantzi's two lap average speed in qualifying was 185.999 mph, putting him in the 15th starting position on the grid for the Freedom 100 Indy Pro Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Friday, May 25, 2007.

Fifth out for his qualifying attempt, it was apparent Shane Jantzi's third starting position would not hold up for long as track conditions were improving through the session due to a cloud cover coming in cooling track temperatures,

None the less, there are smiles all around the Jantzi camp as nobody can complain about the performance this multi time Ontario Formula Ford Champion (OFFC) has put forth here at Indy. A test with Brian Stewart Racing, awarded to Shane following the '06 OFFC title, resulted in Brian and Shane putting together this opportunity to compete at Indy. Brian Stewart Racing has gone the extra mile in this case giving a Canadian driver a shot at something big and often out of reach. Long time Jantzi sponsor Maizex Seeds Inc. of Tilbury, ON were also quick to support Shane's first outing in the Indy Pro Series.
