Paul Fix and the Royal Purple Jaguar capture another top 10 finish.

Paul Fix and the Royal Purple Jaguar XKR finish 9th at the Buckeye 100 at Mid-Ohio this weekend. This is Pauls second top-10 finish in the BF Goodrich Cup Trans Am race. This will really help his points standing with 2-9th place finishes and 1-11th place finish.

Through all of the battling up front, Jaguar driver Paul Fix was waging a battle of his own. His car refused to fire on the grid and he sat in the pits as his crew frantically worked on the car. Fix did get out on the track and was trying to catch the field as they took the green flag. Fix drove smartly to move up through the field to finish a strong 9th place finish.

Race Quotes: Paul Fix - "We had a problem getting started on the grid and then the pit officials held us up at pit out so catching was a little more difficult." "The team decided to gamble and not make the fuel stop." "We were lucky, the team was a great support as we drove from last to 9th place."

"Another 9th place finish will help us in the drivers points race."

The next race is the Marconi Grand Prix of Cleveland on July 13, to be aired on CBS. Check your local listings.
