Patrick Sheltra Marches To Career Best Qualifying Effort At Rockingham

ROCKINGHAM, North Carolina (April 18, 2009) - - Still on a roll from his victory at Salem Speedway two weeks ago, Patrick Sheltra answered his second qualifying effort at Rockingham Speedway with a impressive third place time trials effort Saturday afternoon.

The lap awarded the 22-year old Indiantown, Florida native with his career best ARCA RE/MAX Series qualifying effort. At Salem, Sheltra qualified fourth which was a career best before today.

With his run, Sheltra will also receive five bonus points in the No. 60 BuckedUpShirts.com / BuckedUpApparel.com Dodge Charger which will be tabulated towards Sheltra's ARCA championship points.

"I didn't leave anything on the table," said Sheltra, who turned a lap of 24.822 seconds or 145.033 miles per hour. "The BuckedUp car stuck real good but I guarantee you, I held my breathe. We're in good position to make it back-to-back victories in the ARCA RE/MAX Series tomorrow. If it happens were going to get BuckedUp for sure!"

The bonus points have Sheltra sitting just 20 points behind second place competitor Parker Klingerman. 60 credits keep Sheltra from the top-spot. In his three years of ARCA racing, Sheltra has never been higher than fifth before rocketing to third from his performance at Salem.
