DILLEY NINTH ON ROAD COURSE AT MOSPORT

Bowmanville, ON, Sunday June 13, 2010: Mark Dilley driver of the No. 9 PartSource/Mobil 1 Dodge Avenger started the weekend with a sixth place qualifying effort and crossed the finish line in ninth place in Sunday's Vortex Brake Pads 200.

Rain washed out the second group qualifying on Saturday afternoon so Dilley was on track early on Sunday to run his qualifying session. The No 9 PartSource driver went on to post the quickest lap times he's ever had at the Mosport road course, qualifying in sixth place.

A full course caution occurred on lap 17, which allowed Dilley to make a pit stop for fuel. The No.9 also took two tires and restarted in 13. There were no more caution flags so the rest of the 51 lap race was run under green and Dilley was able to work his way up the field and finished the Vortex Brake Pads 200 in ninth place.

After the race Dilley commented "The car was great at the beginning of the race, but we didn't have any tires left and couldn't gain any more track position towards the end.

Overall Dilley was satisfied with his performance at Mosport International raceway, "We'll take a top ten finish on a road course, it will keep us where we are in the points."

Dilley is currently sixth in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Points after two events. The next event for the No. 9 PartSource team will be at Autodome St. Eustache on Saturday July 3rd.
