WHITLOCK EIGHTH IN EDMONTON
Edmonton, AB: Dave Whitlock driver of the #39 Dickies/Hamilton Tiger-Cats/NMT Dodge Charger finished up the western swing with another top ten finish in Edmonton by crossing the finish line in eighth.
Whitlock who fielded a three car team this weekend in Edmonton as Pierre Bourque driver of the #29 Conservative Party Dodge Charger joined him and regular teammate Mark Dilley, qualified his Charger in fourth spot for Saturday's Edmonton 100. Dilley would start in tenth and Bourque would line up 25th.
Whitlock took the green flag in the Edmonton 100 on Saturday in front of full house of enthusiastic race fans. He settled into fourth for the first few laps then fell back a few positions. With some bumping and banging the #39 driver found himself shuffled back to eighth where he would cross the finish line. "The car was good but I had a slight problem with braking going into corner one and that is where the other cars were overtaking us," said Whitlock after the race. "Overall it was a good western swing for us."
The #39 Dickies/Hamilton Tiger-Cats/NMT Dodge Charger team now find themselves moved into the top ten in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series point standings as they head home to prepare for the trek to Montreal where they will be a companion event to the NASCAR Busch Series race on August 3rd and 4th.
