"You take a good finish anyway you can get it"

BOWMANVILLE, ONTARIO (August 11, 2007) -- Kerry Micks finished third in the Full Throttle Energy Drink 200 at Mosport Speedway Saturday night, despite an early race incident which left him an ill-handling race car.

The race was the seventh event in the 12-race NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.

"We got hit in the first ten laps of the race and struggled with a poor handling race car all night," said Kerry Micks, driver of the Beyond Digital Imaging Ford Taurus who started seventh in the 209-lap event. "To be honest, I really don't like racing like we did tonight, most of the teams got pretty beat-up."

Don Thomson Jr. led 181 of the 209 laps to win the race Mark Dilley in second, followed by Micks in third.

"I don't think anyone was going to beat Donnie (Thomson Jr.) tonight, he was the class of the field," Micks added. "You take a good finish anyway that you can get it."

Only four drivers shared the lead in the race on the half-mile paved oval, but the event was slowed considerably with eight cautions for 59 laps, more than a quarter of the race.

The third place finish kept Micks in seventh position in the Top 10 Driver Points in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.

The next event for Micks Motorsports will be race eight in the 12-race NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at the Grand-Prix de Trois-Rivières in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, August 17-19.
