Hamilton-based teams ready to do battle in Cayuga Speedway's Hot Head Henry 200
HAMILTON, ON (August 30, 2006) -- It may only be a short trip from the Fastline Motorsports facility in Hamilton to Cayuga International Speedway, but this two-car CASCAR Super Series team is diligently preparing for this weekend's Hot Head Henry 200 stock car race on the big oval just outside of Hagersville.
"We've been plugging away, getting ready to run at Cayuga," said team driver Jim Lapcevich earlier this week.
Jim and Jeff Lapcevich, the Fastline team drivers, both had a good run in the recent CASCAR race in Montreal during the Champ Car race weekend. Jim started the 23-lap event in ninth spot in his EMCEA Transport / Tim Hortons Chevrolet Monte Carlo, and finished fourth. Road racing expert Jeff started sixth in the race, but considering the transmission in his Tim Hortons / EMCEA Transport / Carhartt Chevrolet Monte Carlo didn't operate properly in the latter stages of the event, he finished a respectable tenth.
Jim Lapcevich mentioned the teams make some special preparations in car set-ups for racing on the big 5/8ths-mile oval at Cayuga.
"Everything's a little unique," he said when referring to different track conditions. "We'll use a little different set-up from the other ovals we race on as Cayuga is more open. Tire wear can be an issue at Cayuga," he added. "But it's like every other track. The newer the tires, the better. We're hoping for a strong showing this coming Sunday.
