Brad LeLiever powers to fourth place finish in CARSTAR Monte Carlo debut

FLAMBOROUGH, ONTARIO - CARSTAR Monte Carlo driver Russ Bond missed the June 19th Ontario Pro Challenge Series race at Flamboro Speedway, but the CARSTAR Monte Carlo still finished the feature race in fourth place with Innisfil's Brad LeLiever at the wheel.

"It just kills me to have to sit out," Bond said. "One of our RBA [Russ Bond Agency] agency drivers, Brad LeLiever filled in for me in the CARSTAR Monte Carlo tonight and he did an outstanding job."

LeLiever was happy about having the opportunity to handle the controls of the CARSTAR Monte Carlo. "It was a great opportunity for me," LeLiever said. "This racing in this series is intense to say the least, but I think we were consistent tonight and the CARSTAR Monte Carlo was fast."

With Bond having to sit out for the night, the CARSTAR Monte Carlo took at serious hit in the points championship, dropping from a tie for second to seventh. "This is a big hit for us in the points," Bond said. "But we owe it to CARSTAR, Dupont, Mobil1, Impact Race Products and Inside Track to do our best for the rest of the year. This is only the fourth of twelve races, so anything can happen yet. The only thing for sure is we won't give up."

The next round - round 5 - of the Ontario Pro Challenge Series is at Sauble Beach Speedway this Saturday night. "Hopefully I will be okay to get back in the CARSTAR Monte Carlo - that is the plan right now," Bond said. "If I can't go, its good to know that we have a relief driver in Brad LeLiever that can get the job done."

The next race for the CARSTAR Monte Carlo is Saturday, June 26th at Sauble Beach Speedway.
