Pierre Bourque Using All of His Talents at Mosport
Versatile Racer Kicking Off Busy Stretch Inside Racecars In Two Countries
CONCORD, NC (June 14, 2007) -- Pierre Bourque is an accomplished road racer who has branched out into stock car racing in recent seasons. This weekend, he'll get to combine both worlds into one race in front of his countrymen at the historic Mosport road course near Toronto, Ontario.
The race will be Bourque's first NASCAR Canadian Tire event of the season and he'll be behind the wheel of a Whitlock Motorsports entry.
"I'm thrilled to be renewing my on-track relationship with Whitlock Motorsports," said Bourque. "The NASCAR Canadian Tire series is going to be a great place to go racing this season and this is going to be our first of several races. The fact that it will be at Mosport, where there is so much history and prestige only makes me look forward to this weekend even more."
Bourque recently got the chance to try out his #29 Driving.ca, Canada.com, Working.com, Dose.ca Dodge Charger at Mosport, and that test set a good tone for the upcoming race there.
"We tested our Dodge Charger there last week, ironed out an engine hiccup, and we feel we will be very competitive for the Father's Day race."
The month of June is going to be a busy one for Bourque. After he completes his race at Mosport, he'll be heading to the United States to spend two days at New Hampshire International Speedway, testing with Fitz Motorsports in preparation for the June 29th NASCAR Busch North Series event there.
"I'm also really looking forward to getting back on track in the Busch East Series," said Bourque. "This is going to be my first time racing at New Hampshire and it looks like a challenging track -- a real racer's track. I can't wait to get out there and take some laps there."
Race fans will now have a new tool to keep up with Bourque's busy racing schedule. His new website, www.pierrebourque.net has been launched. The site features all kinds of news, results and background information on the Canadian race driver, as well as a number of multimedia goodies for race fans. Be sure to check Bourque's new site out, as well as his primary sponsor's website, Driving.ca.
"I am as passionate about motorsports as my primary sponsor Driving.ca is about motoring. Driving.ca is a fantastic website for people looking to research a new vehicle purchase, learn about the latest industry developments, or follow the very latest in racing. We're both all about passion, which makes Driving.ca and perfect match for me."
The Canadian Tire event at Mosport will take place on Sunday, June 17th
