Pierre Bourque will make his first ARCA Racing Series start of the 2010 season at Iowa Speedway in the No. 2 Eddie Sharp Racing Toyota for the Prairie Meadows 200 Saturday, July 10.
[Bourque_vertical_hero_w_sky.jpg] Iowa Experience: Bourque competed at Iowa Speedway several times in different series over the years. He has one ARCA Racing Series start at the Newton, Iowa track in 2008 with ESR in the No. 2 car, where he started 41st and worked his way to finish in the 16th position. In 2009, he competed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the track, finishing 29th in his NASCAR debut. In 2007, Bourque piloted a K&N Pro Series East car to a 14th place finish at Iowa Speedway.
Reuniting with ESR: Bourque reunites with Eddie Sharp Racing this weekend. He competed in three ARCA Racing Series events in 2008 with the team at Daytona International Speedway, Iowa Speedway and Kansas Speedway.
Canada Connection: Bourque, native of Ottawa, Ontario, joins Steve Arpin as the only two Canadians driving in the Prairie Meadows 200. In 2010, Bourque is competing full-time in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and currently sits ninth in points after three races.
Bourque on racing at Iowa Speedway
"I am thrilled to be re-united with Eddie Sharp Racing. I was there last week for a seat fitting, and it felt like going home again with a lot of familiar faces and a great can-do attitude. I'm very excited to be working with crew chief Wayne Carroll. He's extremely competitive, I think we hit it off right away, and I know I can expect great things from him and his crew. Iowa is one of my favorite tracks for two reasons: first, it is an exceptionally well-designed course, and second, it attracts an incredibly intense fan base. In short, it's the perfect package for me to get back to racing in ARCA."
