"There is never a dull moment when you race at Barrie"

BARRIE, ONTARIO (July 1, 2007) -- Team Fastline driver Jim Lapcevich finished ninth in Sunday's NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Barrie Speedway's Mopar 300 in the #25 EMCEA Transport -- Tim Hortons Fastline Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

EMCEA Transport "There is never a dull moment when you race at Barrie," said Lapcevich, who along with brother Jeff drives for the Hamilton-based team. "At one point in the race we got down a couple of laps and with the help of the free pass we were able to get back on the lead lap and the car was running really well."

D.J. Kennington won the event, Mark Dilley was second, and Don Thomson Jr. finished third in the race that saw the lead change 13 times between six drivers.

Lapcevich, who resides in Grimsby, ON, started 12th in the 20-car field for the 300-lap race on the third-mile paved oval. He will not be going to the next event.

"Our plan is to skip the race in Vernon, BC and get the road course cars ready for the Edmonton event where Jeff (Lapcevich) won last year," added Lapcevich. "Edmonton is a great venue with very enthusiastic fans, and I really enjoy racing there."

The next event for Team Fastline will be race five in the 12-race NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at the Rexall Grand Prix of Edmonton on the 3.154-kilometer (1.96 miles), 14-turn road course at the City Centre Airport in Edmonton, Alberta on July 20-21.
