WHITLOCK & NMT TOGETHER FOR SIX YEARS

Wyoming, ON: Dave Whitlock and the No. 39 Dickies Dodge Avenger team are pleased to welcome back NMT, Nitrex Metal Technologies to their sixth year of sponsorship of Whitlock Motorsports.

"We are proud of the relationship we have built with Dave Orosz of Nitrex Metal Technologies, his employees and customers," stated team owner and driver Dave Whitlock. "NMT have supported us through thick and thin and have went far above all expectations, to support our race team. We couldn't be happier to welcome them back for year six."

Nitrex Metal Technologies Inc. is a family owned and operated company based in Burlington, Ontario. They place a strong emphasis on teamwork to achieve the utmost level of service and quality for their customers through the use of technology and innovation. With their focus being entirely on surface treatment of metal components, they have an extensive knowledge of the controlled gas nitriding process in particular and can offer a superior level of service to that of their competitors. The combined knowledge and expertise of the metallurgical and materials staff at both NMT and sister company H&S Heat Treating allow a unique and comprehensive applications design aid to their customers.

"Dave Whitlock and his team exemplify the values that reflect our company, some of those being teamwork, hardworking, fun loving and tenacious," commented NMT-Nitrex President Dave Orosz. "We at NMT-Nitrex value the relationship we have with the Whitlock Motorsports team and Dave Whitlock personally and that is why we are back for our sixth year. The Whitlock organization is first class, professional and always competitive, and are representative of the best there is in Canadian Motorsports. We know they have worked extremely hard during the offseason, have made significant investments in new equipment and we can't wait for the first race when Whit gets a chance to showcase all that effort out on the racetrack."

"Our main objective for the 2008 season is getting back to the winner's circle," stated Dave Whitlock. "We missed the top rung of the podium last year so we have been working hard during the offseason to remedy that. With Dickies Canada signing a two year contract extension in September 2007, we have been able to concentrate this off season on racing rather than sponsorship."

CRS Trucking will again provide the power to haul the brand new 53' Featherlite race trailer. Not to be out done Stan Morrow from CRS has provided a new 2008 T660 Kenworth tractor with a large studio lounge/sleeper. Both units are expected in the Whitlock Motorsports yard any day now. Additionally, Wendell Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Kitchener have come on board to look after all the paint and body needs of the two car race team.

Two new team members have been added in the offseason. Ray McCaughey returns to the team after a two year hiatus. Ray will be working closely with Dave & Warren as a set up specialist, overseeing tire preparation & management and of course over the wall as rear tire changer. After helping Whitlock Motorsports with the # 29 Pierre Bourque car for the last couple seasons, Scott Van Camp comes on board for the 2008 season and will take on the tire preparation duties at the track as well as over the wall as tire carrier.

Whitlock Motorsports teammates Mark Dilley and Dave Whitlock will take to the track for the first practice session of the year at the annual Mopar Day. It takes place next week, Wed. April 30th at Kawartha Speedway just outside of Peterborough. Next up will be the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series open test session at Cayuga Motor Speedway on May 10th. This session is open to the public to come out and watch as well as camp. For more information on the test day and tickets for race event number one on May 24th, please visit www.cayugamotorspeedway.ca
