SOLID FORTH FOR STECKLY AT MOSPORT

Bowmanville, ON, Sunday June 13, 2010: Scott Steckly driver of the No. 22 Racing/Canadian Tire Dodge had a solid practice and qualified the car in fifth place for Sunday's Vortex Brake Pads 200. Steckly had an even better finish and brought the car across the finish line in the forth position.

After rain washed out the second group qualifying on Saturday afternoon Steckly, who posted the quickest time in practice on Saturday, went out on Sunday morning and qualified the No. 22 Canadian Tire Dodge in fifth place.

Steckly pitted the 22 Racing Dodge early, taking fuel only on lap 15. A full course caution on lap 17 had him returning to pit road for another pit stop, this time Steckly took 4 tires and restarted in tenth.

The rest of the 51 lap race was under green flag conditions. Steckly had a great car and with fresh tires was able to work his way up through the pack to finish just off the podium with a fourth place finish.

After the race Steckly commented, "I was very happy with the car, but would have liked to have finished on the podium." Steckly was driving a brand new car and indicated that "Mosport was a great learning experience and now we have some direction and are looking forward to the Toronto Indy."

Steckly is currently fifth in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series points heading to event #3 at Autodrome St. Eustache just outside of Montreal on Saturday July 3rd.
