SIMONE'S DAY ENDS EARLY AT MOSPORT

Bowmanville, ON, Sunday June 13, 2010: Anthony Simone, driver of the No. 95 Gaphix Factory/Castrol/Bell Chevrolet had problems early in practice but walked away with an eighth place qualifying position, however, the day ended early for Simone when the No. 95 blew a drive train early in the race.

Simone had a tough start to the second event of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series when he blew a motor early in the first practice. The team worked really hard and were able to fix the car in time for qualifying where Simone posted a time that would start him in eighth place.

After qualifying Simone was optimistic, "The car is fast" said Simone who was only able to get in four laps during practice, "so we're looking forward to the race and confident we will be able to get the No. 95 to the front."

However, the Vortex Brake Pads 200 didn't get much better for the No. 95 team as they had vibrations early and broke something in the drive train on the ninth lap, which took out a bunch of oil lines and ultimately put an early end to the day. Simone finished in 25th place.
