MOPAR PARTS DODGE PREPARATIONS FOR 2008 RACING SEASON WELL UNDERWAY
March, 2008. The start of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series racing season is still two months away, Ron Beauchamp Jr. and the Mopar Parts team are hard at work preparing for the expanded thirteen race schedule.
In the inaugural season of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Ron Beauchamp Jr. placed the #60 Mopar Parts Dodge on the podium at the challenging Mosport Raceway at the season finale at Kawartha Speedway. However the team experienced mixed results through the middle part of the season. "Those trouble spots in the middle of the year are what we want to avoid this season" said driver Ron Beauchamp Jr.
Knowing the team had the potential to be up front every race weekend is what's motivates the team to be digging in this hard so far in advance of the season opener. "We've got good equipment" said Beauchamp. "Unfortunately a few times last season we had a mechanical problem take us out of competition, usually when we were running up in the top-ten. That's frustrating. We're going over all of our equipment with a fine tooth comb to improve our reliability".
In its first season of operation the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series brought stock car racing excitement from coast to coast in Canada. This years schedule expands to thirteen events with a new race added at the Autodrome St. Eustache. "I've run at this track before" said Beauchamp. "A lot of guys get frustrated their but I've done well in the past winning and finishing on the podium a couple of times. We expect to have the same kind of success this year".
