Fastline Motorsports poised for NASCAR opener
"We came within a few feet of winning there last year, and the team has something to prove."
HAMILTON, ONTARIO (May 21, 2008) -- Fastline Motorsports team driver Jim Lapcevich is ready to compete in this weekend's NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Cayuga Motor Speedway in Nelles Corners, Ontario.
"I enjoy running at Cayuga," said the 36-year old from Hamilton, Ontario. "It's always a good track for me and I consider it home turf. In last year's race we came within a few feet of winning, so this weekend the team has something to prove."
In 2007, Lapcevich and Peter Gibbons traded the lead five times in the final 37 laps, but on the final turn of the final lap the two locked bumpers and tangled after getting involved with a slower car, sending both leading cars spinning out of contention. Lapcevich was able to get back on the track, but lost valuable time and his #25 Fastline car finished a disappointing eighth.
"We ran well in most of the races last year, but success eluded us," he added. "I'm hoping this season our bad luck is behind us. Hopefully we will have a good run at Cayuga. We have a great bunch of fans at the track and it's also important to our sponsors to run well there."
The team will campaign its Tim Hortons Fastline Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlos in the stock car series.
Teammate Jeff Lapcevich will not be competing at Cayuga.
The event at Cayuga Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is scheduled to start Saturday, May 24, at 7:30 p.m.
The Crown Jewel 200, is race one in the 13-race schedule, in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series tour.
