Disappointing road course start for Whitlock at Mosport

Oshawa, ON - Jun 18 2005: "The car was much better than the results showed for us" said a disappointed Dave Whitlock after a frustrating weekend at the Berms R Us presents the Clarington 200 at the 10-turn Mosport International Raceway.

The bad news started while Whitlock's arrival was delayed in traffic. Teammate Mark Dilley was able to take the brand new #39 Avenue / NMT Dodge Charger out for its shakedown laps and the team discovered some front suspension issues. When Dave arrived and set out on practice, they discovered an engine problem that caused them to replace it over night, relegating a move to the back for the Sunday starting grid.

"Overall, I'm very happy with this new McColl chassis" said Whitlock. "Coming from 33rd on this road course is decent and now we have a base line to use going into the Molson Indy street course in July." Unfortunately, Whitlock finished 9th and slipped two spots in points to 5th.

On TV: Event #2, the WHELEN 200 from St-Eustache Quebec - SATURDAY June 25th on SPORTSNET at 3 pm EST.

Next CASCAR Super Series race: July 1-3 at Barrie Speedway. The newly reconfigured track will host several racing events during the Canada Day Weekend, leading up to the Dodge Charger 300 presented by the Dodge Dealers of Ontario, on Sunday, July 3.
