               Lapcevich takes top ten in Kawartha NASCAR finale

"I'm pleasantly pleased with our team this year "

FRASERVILLE, ONTARIO (September 23, 2007) -- Driving the EMCEA Transport - Tim Hortons Fastline Motorsports entry, Jim Lapcevich finished seventh at the Dodge Dealers of Ontario Dodge Charger 250 presented by Allied Steel Buildings in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series over the weekend.

"We bent the tow with forty to go," smiled the aspiring poet Lapcevich after the race. "What can I say, we were running well all day, and it was just one of those racing deals."

Lapcevich started 13th in the 25-car field, on the 3/8th-mile, high banked, asphalt oval in Fraserville, Ontario in the final event in the 12-race NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Kawartha Speedway.

"I'm pleasantly pleased with our team this year," added Lapcevich. "We were in the hunt during the final stages of a number of races. I would have hopped for a better ending, but that's the way it goes."

EMCEA Transport "We're fortunate to have first class sponsors like Tim Hortons and EMCEA Transport, they make it happen, and we certainly couldn't do it without their support."

Scott Steckly won the event followed by Peter Gibbons in second and Ron Beauchamp, Jr. third in the race that had nine lead changes between four drivers and nine cautions for 61 laps.

Jim's teammate, brother Jeff Lapcevich did not compete in Kawartha.
