Shirley and Gibbons win Twin 100s

CALGARY, AB (July 24, 1998) -- The first of four CASCAR Castrol Super Series National events kicked off on Friday evening at Calgary's Race City Motorsport Park. The Twin 100 lap qualifying races set the majority of the field for Sunday's Mopar 300 at the half-mile oval.

Dan Shirley of Saskatoon, SK won the first 100 lapper, while Stouffville, ON's Peter Gibbons won the second. Both drive Chevrolet Monte Carlos and each is a current CASCAR champion. Shirley is the reigning Western series champion, while Gibbons was the best driver on the Eastern tour in '97.

The remainder of the field for Sunday's main event will be determined by the 'Final Qualifier' race on Saturday night at Race City.
