WHITLOCK SET TO COMPETE IN DICKES 200 THIS WEEKEND

Wyoming, ON, Thursday June 12, 2008: Dave Whitlock driver of the No. 39 Dickies/NMT Dodge Avenger is set to compete in the Dickies 200 this weekend at the famed Mosport International Raceway. Dickies Canada will again be the title sponsor of this Father's Day event which is fast becoming a NASCAR tradition.

HPIM1510.JPG The Dickies 200 presented by Lucas Oil, will take place Sunday June 15th at the world class, 4 kilometer, 10 turn, Mosport International Raceway road course. This is the first of four road course events on the thirteen race NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Schedule in 2008. The others being the Edmonton Indy, Montreal Nationwide race weekend and the Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres.

"We are definitely looking forward to this weekend," stated team owner and driver Dave Whitlock. "It is always a pleasure to come to Mosport as this facility is one of the best in the Country. Racing in front of our sponsors and their guests is an added bonus and we hope we can give them something to cheer about. Last year we finished eighth here and we look to step that up a notch or two this year as we are bringing a new car."
