MI-JACK CONQUEST RACING ATLANTIC TEAM TO START THIRD AND 11TH IN EDMONTON

Edmonton, Alberta, July 22, 2006 -- Mi-Jack Conquest Racing Atlantic driver Graham Rahal will start tomorrow's West Edmonton Mall Grand Prix Atlantic Race from the third position on the grid while his team-mate Ryan Lewis will start 11th. Rahal missed capturing his fourth pole of the season by only seven thousandths of a second. His time of 1:05.340 was the second fastest time of the session but Simon Pagenaud had already locked in a front row starting spot yesterday when he grabbed the provisional pole which in turn relegated Rahal to third on the final grid. After crashing out yesterday during qualifying, Ryan Lewis came back with a strong performance today registering a time of 1:06.066. The Atlantic race will start at 4:00 p.m. eastern time and we be broadcast on tape delay on Speed TV July 29th at 2:00 p.m. eastern.

3th - Graham Rahal #18 Gehl Company

"We've struggled a bit this weekend but my guys have done a great job trying to get the car right. We still have a bit of work to do but we have a consistent race car, it's just to get the speed out of it we need to make a couple of adjustments. We came out of the first practice yesterday and even though we were fifth, it wasn't very satisfying for us. Overnight we made another big jump and we finally closed the gap and now we're right there."

19th -- Ryan Lewis #30 Insport Sport Management

"The car was the best it has been all weekend, it was a case of putting together a good lap. Some places I wasn't pushing hard enough and I also got traffic, it didn't come together when it needed. I think I have a consistent car for the race though, it's just going to be very physical tomorrow obviously with the heat it is very hard work around here. We'll just try not to make mistakes."
