SIMONE STRONG IN SEASON OPENER AT DELAWARE

London, ON, Sunday June 6, 2010: Anthony Simone driver of the No. 95 Graphix Factory/Castrol/Bell Chevrolet had what looked like a top five finish within his grasp but with five to go he was spun hard into the back straightaway wall and a 20th place finish was the result.

Simone, in the first event of 13 in the 2010 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series schedule, qualified in the 15th position.

The Delaware 200 presented by Keystone light would see the No.95 team have a tough start to their day as they had several setbacks throughout the early part of the race. Simone was involved in several minor incidents, but kept fighting back. "The team worked really hard," said Simone. "We made several chassis adjustments and even came back from being a lap down."

Simone made his way to the front pack and was running in third with five laps to go when contact with another car sent the No.95 spinning hard into the wall on the back straightaway putting an end to their day and doing significant damage to the Graphix Factory Chevrolet.

"The car was great and we were making a charge to the front at the end of the race," said a frustrated Simone after the race. "We struggled a bit in qualifying, but got it together for the race and managed to fight our way back. It was a disappointing end to our day, not the way we wanted to start the season."
