JR Fitzpatrick Cayuga test notes

May 12, 2008. John Ryan (J.R.) Fitzpatrick and the #84 Fitzpatrick Motorsports Chevrolet team were at Cayuga Speedway this past weekend for their first on track action of the 2008 racing season. After a day of running laps preparing for the NASCAR Canadian Tire series competition the team has pronounced them self ready to race.

J.R. Fitzpatrick and the #84 team had a specific agenda of tasks during the Cayuga test day and making sure their Chevrolet was up to speed is the first order of business. "We were fast right out of the box and that's always a nice way to start the day and start the season" said Fitzpatrick. "The car really didn't change much for the whole day. "We were really consistent all day long; we found that some subtle changes we tried really didn't have much affect on the car. That's good to know for the future that we'll have to make more dramatic adjustments to get results".

The Fitzpatrick Motorsports Chevy team was consistently one of the fastest cars at every event last year and the same kind of performance is expected this season. In 2007 the #84 Chevy with J.R. at the wheel posted seven top-ten finishes including a sweep of the Western Canadian events at Sun Valley Speedway near Vernon, BC and at the Edmonton Grand Prix the next week. "I'm excited about the season" said the young man from Ayr, Ontario. "We've got the cars ready and we're going to go out and try to make some things happen right out of the box" he added.

J.R Fitzpatrick and the Fitzpatrick Motorsports team will compete in all thirteen rounds of the 2008 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series beginning Saturday May 24th at Cayuga Speedway. The 2008 schedule will take teams to the east coast and western Canada where Fitzpatrick swept away the competition last year. All races will once again be broadcast on TSN.
