WHITLOCK MAKES WESTERN SWING

Vernon, British Columbia, Friday July 14, 2006: The Whitlock crew has arrived in the beautiful Okanogan Valley and is ready to take to the track in their second appearance at Sun Valley Speedway in Vernon, British Columbia this weekend.

"We ran pretty decent at Sun Valley last year," stated Whitlock. "We qualified third quickest and finished fifth but D.J. was just so strong, nobody was going to beat him last year but we hope to have something for him this time."

Dave Whitlock currently sits in fourth in National Championship points after moving up four positions with his third place finish in the Mopar 300 two weeks ago. 1. #84 J.R. Fitzpatrick 542 2. #22 Scott Steckly 534 3. #10 Doug Brown 513 4. #39 Dave Whitlock 506 4. #06 Kerry Mick 506 6. #4 Don Thomson Jr 505.

The teams will then make the trip to Edmonton for inclusion in the 2nd annual Grand Prix of Edmonton. The CASCAR Super Series raced on a similarly configured airport course here in Edmonton several years ago and the #39 team are looking forward to their return and joining the Champ Car.

The Mopar 300 from Barrie Speedway on the Canada Day weekend will be broadcast on Rogers Sportsnet, Saturday July 15th at 3 p.m. EST. Check local listings for more details.
