CLERMONT, Ind. - Mark E. Dismore was able to claim the family bragging rights after collecting a 17th place finish in the ASA 200 Saturday night at the Indianapolis Raceway Park. While competing against his father, Mark A. Dismore, for the first time, the younger Dismore was able to claim the honor after senior Dismore was taken out of contention with fifteen laps remaining in the race.

"I hate that Dad was taken out when he was running so well," Dismore said. "He was definitely showing me up, but I think it's great he was able to come here and show how good of a driver he is in a stock car, as well as in open wheel. We never got to race each other the whole race, which is disappointing, but he did a great job out there and I know this race will be memorable for both of us."

Dismore started 40th in the 43-car field, after taking a provisional at his home track. Dismore battled a tight condition and on lap 35 the Monster.com/WorldBestBuy.com crew decided to bring him in to change right side tires, as well as make a chassis adjustment. Dismore continued on, but eventually lost a lap to the leaders. Dismore managed to remain only one lap down for the remainder of the race, while avoiding the wrecks he encountered.

"We stayed out of trouble and that's a good thing," Dismore said. "We had great pit stops, but we just weren't able to take advantage of them. We would've been able to run in the top-10 if we hadn't been put down a lap early, but that's the way it goes. We'll go to Winchester next weekend and see what we can do. It is a fun place and it's definitely going to be a wild race."

Dismore was able to pick up two positions in the ASA ACDelco Series point standings and now sits 17th with two races remaining in the season. Dismore was also able to reclaim fourth position in the Pat Schauer Memorial Rookie of the Year point standings.
