Grueling start for Team Fastline Motorsports at Barrie
BARRIE, ON (May 22, 2006) -- It was not a good day for Fastline Motorsports team drivers Jeff and Jim Lapcevich, as the team finished 14th and 16th respectively in Monday's CASCAR Super Series GO-RACING.CA 300 at Barrie Speedway.
"I managed to get into problems on the very first lap of the race and that pretty much ended my chances for a good finish," said team driver Jim Lapcevich. "We had a good car but it was just too little too late after getting down a couple of laps at the start," added Lapcevich, who placed 16th after starting 22nd. "I can't say enough about the EMCEA Transport / Tim Hortons Team. They put in a strong effort all weekend under some very extreme conditions all weekend long."
Scott Steckly won the GO-RACING.CA 300 followed closely by Don Thomson Jr. in second and J.R. Fitzpatrick in third.
"There is no question we had a top-ten car in Barrie until we got caught up in some lapped traffic that got us down some laps," explained Jeff Lapcevich, who finished 14th after starting 12th. "The day got even more complicated when we lost a cylinder and you're not going to pass Donnie (Thomson) on seven cylinders. We had no choice but to put the Tim Hortons / EMCEA Transport Chevrolet Monte Carlo on cruise and try to stay out of trouble."
Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Fastline Motorsports is a two-car race team that has become one of Canada's most prominent racing enterprises in both oval track and road course competition.
The next CASCAR Super Series race of the season will take place Saturday, June 10 at Autodrome St-Eustache located west of Montreal, Quebec on the 4/10ths-mile flat asphalt oval.
