"We had a great shot at winning this deal"

EDMONTON, ALBERTA (July 22, 2007) --Kerry Micks had a disappointing race in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series stock car event during the Rexall Grand Prix of Edmonton last weekend.

"Our BDI Ford ran with the leaders all day, and had moved into second place and everything was going as planned when we had the problem," said Micks after the race. "We had a great shot at winning this deal."

Micks finished 29th in the Beyond Digital Imaging Ford Taurus after starting third on the 1.96 mile, 14-turn road course at the City Center Airport several laps down with a suspension failure.

"I feel bad for my team, but this will make us stronger for the next event in Montreal," added Micks. "We just have to remain positive and focused."

J.R. Fitzpatrick used a last lap pass to win a race for the second consecutive race. Andrew Ranger was second followed by Robin Buck in third.

The next event for Micks Motorsports will be race six in the 12-race NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Montreal's famed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Quebec on the 2.71 mile permanent road course on August 3-4.
