BOURQUE PREPARES FOR ST. EUSTACHE DEBUT Ottawa, ON. (June 30, 2010) Pierre Bourque and the ...


Ottawa, ON. (June 30, 2010) Pierre Bourque and the #00 Telus Dodge team will be venturing into uncharted waters this weekend for round number three of the Canadian NASCAR season at the Autodrome St. Eustache this Saturday, July 3rd.

This will be Bourque's first attempt at the tricky 4/10 mile flat oval track just outside Montreal but he is hopeful of positive results. "I've learned so much already with our new team at DJK Racing and I'm confident we can come out of this event with another good finish" he stated.

Through the first two events the #00 Telus Dodge driver has shown resilience and persistence and the results have paid dividends. "I had my best ever Canadian NASCAR series finish of sixth in the opening round, and even with some pit stop troubles we were fifteenth at Mosport, these kinds of results show we're a team that's gelled together very quickly" enthused the driver

With those two solid finishes #00 Telus Dodge driver Bourque finds himself sitting seventh in the overall championship standings. "I'm very proud of how well we've done as a team so far this year, I hope we can continue to carry that momentum forward" said Bourque.

Autodrome St. Eustache can be a tricky and difficult track to maneuver so Pierre will be taking a cautious approach. "My first goal is to finish the entire race and bring the #00 Telus Dodge home without incident. That is a significant accomplishment at this track" stated the driver

"I've received some good information on technique to handle this track and the traffic from my teammate DJ Kennington so I think we'll have a very positive result. I'll be keeping everyone posted on our progress by tweeting on my Telus iphone" said the driver.
