Lapcevich takes Friday provisional pole for the Canadian Tire 100 CASCAR race in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, BC - CASCAR road course dominator Jeff Lapcevich was the class of the field during Friday afternoon's first qualifying session for the Canadian Tire 100 Super Series race at the Vancouver Indy. The Tim Hortons/Fastline Chevy driver lapped the 12-turn temporary street circuit in a time of 1 minute and 23.810 seconds.

Second-fastest in the session was Kerry Micks, of Mt. Albert, ON. The Power Water Ford driver posted his best time early on in Friday's qualifying session and actually had the best time for several minutes, but saw his provisional pole position evaporate when Lapcevich nailed his 'hot lap' closer to the end of the half-hour session. Peter Gibbons was third fastest in his Canadian Tire Chevy (1:24.564).

A total of 20 drivers recorded times during Qualifying Session #1. Two competitors experienced mechanical trouble early on and will be looking to Saturday morning's second (and final) pre-race qualifying session to record a time. That session is scheduled to start at 8:00 a.m. and will set the starting grid for the Canadian Tire 100.

Earlier on Friday, Jeff Lapcevich led the way during the morning practice session, recording a lap of 1 minute and 24.430 seconds. The effort by the Caistor Centre, ON competitor was over a half-second better than that of Don Thomson Jr. (1:25.151). Lapcevich and Thomson finished 'one-two' in the CASCAR race at the Toronto Indy, two weeks ago.
