WHITLOCK EXPERIENCES TRANSMISSION TROUBLE IN THREE RIVERS

Trois Rivieres, QC: The No. 39 Dickies Dodge Charger of Dave Whitlock, was one of twenty-eight NASCAR Canadian Tire Series cars to attend the GP3R 100 event on Sunday. Whitlock started the 100 km race in fourteenth but a transmission failure relegated them to near the back of the twenty-eight car field.

Whitlock, driver of the Dickies/Hamilton Tiger Cats/NMT Dodge Charger, got caught up in a wreck in practice on Friday when NASCAR Canadian Tire Series point leader Andrew Ranger lost an engine at the start/finish line while Whitlock was following him. It would take the team several hours but the car was good as new when they headed out to the track for qualifying on Saturday morning . A fourteenth quickest time was considered to be a good effort and the No. 39 driver was ready to take the green and move toward the front.

Whitlock would start the GP3R 100 before a packed house of enthusiastic race fans from the seventh row. After getting through turn one on the first lap and dodging a couple of early race incidents in front of him, Whitlock looked ready to post another solid top ten finish. Alas that was not to happen as the No. 39 experienced a broken transmission
