"The BDI race car was good all night"

VERNON, BRITISH COLUMBIA (July 15, 2007) -- In his Beyond Digital Imaging Ford Taurus, Kerry Micks placed fourth in Sunday's British Columbia Dodge Dealers Dodge Avenger 300 on the half-mile tri-oval at Sunvalley Speedway in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Sirius Satellite Radio.

"It was an awesome race, we led a couple of times, and are pleased with a top-five finish," said Micks, of Mount Albert, ON. "This finish should move us up in the points, the BDI race car was good all night."

J.R. Fitzpatrick edged Scott Steckly by .029-seconds in the green-white-checkered finish, Peter Gibbons finished third, and D.J. Kennington finished fifth behind Micks to round out the top five.

Micks "The extreme hot temperatures were tough on everyone, the BDI crew did great job battling the elements and I burned my leg in the car," said Micks after the race. "But we'll be good for Edmonton where we finished second last year." The veteran stock car driver, who qualified fifth in the 23-car field at Vernon, competed in a race that saw 13 lead changes between seven drivers and 68 of the 300 laps under the caution flag.

"It's very encouraging for the team to have BDI on board as a primary sponsor for the rest of the tour with associate sponsorship from Nur America," said Micks.

The next NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event for Micks Motorsports will be race five in the 12-race series at the Rexall Grand Prix of Edmonton on the 3.154-kilometer (1.96 miles), 14-turn road course at the City Centre Airport in Edmonton, Alberta on July 20-21.
