HAMILTON, ONTARIO (May 29, 2008) -- After a year absence, team driver Jim Lapcevich and his Tim Hortons Fastline Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo will return to the Autodrome St. Eustache this Saturday in Quebec at the Kodak 250 in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. "This is a tight little oval where we can really mix it up," said Lapcevich. "St. Eustache can provide some close, paint-swapping racing, and I plan to be right in there dicing it up with the others."

As the second of 13 races on the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Sirius Satellite Radio schedule, this event will be the inaugural event at the track for the series.

"We had some car issues at the Cayuga opener last week, but hopefully that will all be sorted out when we take to the track this weekend," added the 36-year old Lapcevich, who competed regularly in the former CASCAR Super Series.

The St. Eustache oval is a tight circuit of .4 miles in length. The track was founded in 1965 as Fury Speedway de Fabreville, and the current configuration has been hosting various types of racing since 1970. This Saturday's event will be 250 laps, or 100 miles in length. The starting field will be comprised of 26 cars, including provisionals. The first 23 cars will qualify through two-lap time trials. The remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process.

Teammate Jeff Lapcevich will not be competing at St. Eustache.

The Kodak 250 at Autodrome St. Eustache is scheduled to start Saturday, May 31, at 8:35 p.m.
