Micks returns to Mosport as defending champion
"It's going to be an important weekend for the future of Micks Motorsports."

MOUNT ALBERT, ONTARIO (June 13, 2007) -- Kerry Micks has a lot riding on his performance this weekend. Not only is the stock car veteran the defending winner of the Father's Day Doubleheader Weekend at Mosport International Raceway, and would like to keep hold of his title, he is hoping for a good showing to retain and secure solid sponsorship for the remainder of the year.

Micks Headshot For the upcoming race, Micks will be driving the Beyond Digital Imaging Ford Taurus on the Mosport road course, the second race in the new 12-event NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Sirius Satellite Radio.

"We run really well at Mosport and I enjoy the challenging road courses, they separate the men from the boys," said Micks from his Mount Albert, Ontario race shop. "Our team's start in the first race of the season wasn't all that great and the plan is to rebound with a good finish," he added.

The Father's Day Doubleheader Weekend - The Dickies 200, presented by Canadian Shield Anticrime will take place Saturday and Sunday on the 2.5-mile, 10-turn road course, June 16 -- 17, at Mosport International Raceway, located about 60 miles east of Toronto just north of Bowmanville, Ontario.

"It's going to be an important weekend for the future of Micks Motorsports in 2007," Micks added, referring to primary sponsorship agreement with Beyond Digital Imaging for the first three events of the season. "A podium finish or hopefully a win may give us the momentum the team needs to secure the sponsorship for the rest of the season."
