BOURQUE & WHITLOCK TEAM UP AGAIN IN 2007
Wyoming, ON: Dave Whitlock is pleased to announce today that Pierre Bourque will again field a Whitlock prepared Dodge Charge only this year it will be in the new NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
Bourque campaigned under the Whitlock banner in 2006 in three events, the Edmonton Grand Prix, Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres and the Grand Prix of Montreal where he posted finishes of 25th, 12th and 12th respectfully. "We are excitd to have Pierre back again this year for three events and we hope to see him post top ten finishes in all of them," said team owner Dave Whitlock. "Pierre worked hard last year and continued to improve and almost got his first top ten in Montreal except for a last lap spin which saw him lose a few positions to finish 12th."
"I'm absolutely thrilled to be back racing with Whitlock Motorsports, this year in the NASCAR CANADIAN TIRE Series," said Bourque. "Whitlock not only runs one of the two or three top teams on the circuit, but he is a fierce on-track competitor in his own right. Add to that his infectious enthusiasm for the sport and it boils down to a huge value-add package for me in 2007."
Bourque will drive the #29 DRIVING.CA Dodge Charger in three events in 2007. Event number two on the schedule, the Mosport Road Course, the Grand Prix of Edmonton and the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres. Pierre will also get some additional seat time in a Whitlock oval car this weekend when the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series teams take to the track for a pre-season test session at Cayuga Speedway.
"It's going to be a busy season. It started with my 12th place in the ROLEX CUP Daytona 24hrs race back in January," stated Bourque. "I'll also be racing in the NASCAR BUSCH and BUSCH EAST series through the summer."
"I am confident the DRIVING.CA CANADA.COM WORKING.COM DOSE.CA #29 Dodge Charger will be a contender in Canada right out of the box, backed by the keen efforts of all Whitlock crew members. I'm really looking forward to seeing them all again, it's going to be an awful lot of fun."
The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will debut in the spring of 2007. The new series will bring together some of Canada's best stock car drivers and teams anchored by the marketing, promotional and motor sports resources of Canada's leading retailer, media company, and motorsports property, NASCAR, Canadian Tire and TSN.
