Gibbons nabs pole for Sunday's GM Goodwrench Service 300

NELLES CORNERS, ON CASCAR Castrol Super Series National points leader Peter Gibbons set the fastest time during Saturday's qualifying time trials for Sunday's GM Goodwrench Service 300 at Cayuga Speedway. The Chevrolet driver was quickest of the 45 drivers who attempted to qualify for Sunday's race at the 5/8-mile Hamilton-area oval and will lead the field of 38 in tomorrow's race; the seventh Eastern series event of the 1998 season.

But Gibbons' crew will be busy in the hours leading up to the event, repairing damage their car suffered during their 15-lap heat race, shortly after their pole-winning time trial run. The defending Eastern champion tagged the wall hard, inflicting heavy damage to the right side.

In other heat race action, checkered flags went to defending National champion Dave Whitlock, Don Thomson Jr., Bill Rowse Jr., and John Fitzpatrick. Steve Maheux won the Final Qualifiers' race. Ron Beauchamp, of Windsor, ON leads the Eastern points chase, entering Sunday's 300 lap event.

NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be on hand, as part of the pre-race festivities, at Cayuga Speedway on Sunday morning. From 10a.m. until noon, fans will get a chance to meet NASCAR's fastest rising star. The green flag waves for GM Goodwrench 300 Service 300 at 2:15 p.m.
