Inclement weather delays the CASCAR Super Series season opener to Monday afternoon at Barrie Speedway

TORONTO, ON -- The start of the 2006 CASCAR Super Series season has been pushed back one day. The GO-RACING.CA 300 -- originally scheduled for Sunday evening at Barrie Speedway -- has been rescheduled to Monday afternoon by inclement weather.

Spectator gates will open at 10:30 a.m. on Monday. The CASCAR driver autograph session will begin at 2:15 p.m. and the green flag is scheduled to fly at 3:15 p.m. Three Barrie Speedway home division support classes will race between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Five-time and current CASCAR Super Series champion Don Thomson Jr. demonstrated his intention to make it six in a row when he posted the fastest lap during Saturday afternoon's time trial session to earn the pole position for the GO-RACING.CA 300. Brantford, ON racer Doug Brown was second fastest and will line up on the outside of the front row on Monday.

On Saturday evening, the rest of the 25-car grid was determined via a pair of 50-lap sprint races. Don Thomson won the first, ahead of DJ Kennington and J.R. Fitzpatrick. In the second 50-lapper, veteran racer Kerry Micks passed Doug Brown in the late-going to earn the victory. Brad Graham was third in the second heat.
