DICKIES & WHITLOCK PREPARING FOR 2009 SEASON
WYOMING, ONTARIO (Wednesday Feb. 18, 2009): Team owner and driver Dave Whitlock of Whitlock Motorsports is pleased to announce the return of Wiliamson-Dickie Canada Co., maker and distributor of Dickies, the leading global Workwear brand, as title sponsor of the No. 39 entry in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in 2009.
"Dickies are on board with us again for the third year," stated a happy Whitlock. "I know I speak for my team when we say that we are not happy with the results of the 2008 season. We would be running respectable in a race and then something beyond our control would take us out of the picture. We want to show Dickies and our fans that we can be a top competitor in 2009. We plan to get the No. 39 Dickies Dodge Avenger back up front and contend for the wins this year."
"We are proud to be part of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series again in 2009 through our partnership with Dave and his #39 Dickies Dodge Avenger team" said Bill McFarlane, VP Marketing, Williamson-Dickie Canada Co. "We know that Dave and the team had a few challenges last year, but we are confident that through determination and the consistent level of professionalism they bring to the track each week, they will be rewarded in 2009."
Whitlock Motorsports is also very excited to welcome back NMT, Nitrex Metal Technologies, Dave Orosz and his employees and family. "Dave Orosz and everyone from NMT have been big supporters of ours and this will be our seventh year together. We couldn't be happier having them back on board with us again in '09."
The 2009 schedule was released this week with the usual stops at Mosport, St. Eustache (2), Barrie, Kawartha, Riverside, Montreal, Trois Rivieres, Sun Valley and Edmonton. New in '09 will be the return to Delaware Speedway in London (home of the former CASCAR Super Series) and a first time visit to Auto Clearing Speedway in Saskatoon, SK.
