Team Fastline looks forward to Montreal
"We play in front of a huge crowd in Montreal, the fans are passionate for motorsports."

HAMILTON, ONTARIO (August 1, 2007) -- Team Fastline drivers Jeff and Jim Lapcevich are looking forward to this weekend's NAPA AUTOPRO 100 in Montreal at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in their EMCEA Transport -- Tim Hortons Fastline Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlos. The 23-lap race will be the sixth NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event this year.

"I'm really pleased with my new McColl Racing race car," said Jim Lapcevich. "We struggled with the set up at the first road course race at Mosport, but in Edmonton it was one strong race car." Montreal is the third of four scheduled road course races on the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Sirius Satellite Radio schedule in 2007.

Lapcevich, of Grimsby, ON, finished fourth at the event last year at the track that sits on a man-made island in the St. Lawrence River, named after the late Canadian Formula One driver Gilles Villeneuve, father of 1997 F1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve.

"I'm looking forward to getting back in the #23 Tim Hortons -- EMCEA Transport Chevy," explained Jeff Lapcevich, who has not competed in the last two events. "We play in front of a huge crowd in Montreal, and the fans are passionate for motorsports."
