Saturday, August 25, 2007


The ARCA RE/MAX Series held time trials late Saturday afternoon under perfect racing conditions in preparation for Sunday’s Governor’s Cup 200, the 17th ARS (ARCA RE/MAX Series) event on the 2007 racing calendar.

DEXTER BEAN, NO. 6 FIVE STAR TELECOM CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO :

Practice Time: 16th (31.518 seconds, 114.220 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 9/41

Qualifying Time: 30.541 seconds, 117.874 MPH

Qualifying Position: Fifth

Starting Position: Fifth

“We’ll take that. We only had three laps of practice because of the problem with the primary motor. We made some excellent strides in qualifying today. I over drove the first corner on the second lap, so we just did a one and done. The car is a little tight, but it’s a long race tomorrow, we’ll have time to adjust. I’m glad we’re starting on the bottom; it’s an advantage here at The Milwaukee Mile. I’m proud of everyone on the BlackJack Racing team today for all their hard work. We’re looking forward to the race tomorrow.”

JAMES BUESCHER, NO. 32 MERCEDES HOMES-RED LINE OIL DODGE INTREPID:

Practice Time: Fourth (30.881 seconds, 116.577 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 36/41

Qualifying Time: 30.451 seconds, 118.223 MPH

Qualifying Position: Second

Starting Position: Second

“Congratulations to Michael McDowell (pole sitter). I thought we had a car that was good enough for the pole, but we came up a little short. I’m proud of everyone on the Country Joe Racing team. We are always fast and that’s a good feeling. The car is great, a little tight, but we can work on it. I am not going to complain. I am looking forward to the race tomorrow.”

DOMINICK CASOLA, NO. 1 A. CASOLA FARMS FORD FUSION:

Practice Time: 24th (32.287 seconds, 111.500 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 15/41

Qualifying Time: 31.278 seconds, 115.097 MPH

Qualifying Position: 21

Starting Position: 21

“We picked up nearly a second from practice, so that’s a good thing. The car is better, so I’m happy about that. We still have a little work to do tomorrow, but it’s a long race. We’ll try and use some pit strategy and put ourselves in a good position for the race. Thanks to my sponsor A. Casola Farms and my team for all their support and hard work, we are going to give it our all tomorrow.”

DUSTIN DELANEY, NO. 48 FREEFEDS.ORG DODGE CHARGER

Practice Time: 27th (32.707 seconds, 110.068 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 30/41

Qualifying Time: 00.000 seconds, 000.000 MPH

Qualifying Position: N/A

**NOTE: Delaney suffered clutch issues during his ARCA SIM Factory pole qualifying attempt. The Carter-2-Motorsports team will arrive in the garage early on Sunday morning and fix the problem before the start of the Governor’s Cup 200**

“Obviously this is disappointing. We thought we would have a good qualifying run. We changed a lot of things after practice which would have helped us. The Carter-2-Motorsports guys never give up though, we’ll get this fixed and focused on the race. It’s a little hairy starting in the back, but it’s a long race and it’s going to take patience. We’ll be fine. I just want to thank everyone at Carter-2-Motorsports and my sponsor FreeFeds.org for this opportunity.”

JAKE FRANCIS, NO. 61 FRANCIS ENGINEERING, HABCO TOOL & DEVELOPMENT DODGE INTREPID

“We found a second, so that’s always good. We are meeting all of our goals here this weekend at The Milwaukee Mile. I’m really proud of my guys. This is our first race together and we’ve gelled really well. We weren't really sure where we would end up in practice or the starting grid, but we’re looking solid. Patience equals success tomorrow and we plan to be near the front at the drop of the checkered flag tomorrow.”

MIKE HARMON, NO. 38 JUST1SHIRT.COM-RICHARDSON-NETZLOFF-HARMON RACING CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO SS

Practice Time: 19th (31.857 seconds, 113.005 MPH)

Qualifying Time: 31.282 seconds, 115.082 MPH

Qualifying Position: 22

Starting Position: 22

“We picked up a little bit, but we’re not starting as close to the front like we wanted. We’ll just have to dig during the race and try and have a good race. We need to put our team back on track following the disappointment at Springfield and I feel this is a place we can do it. It’s a long race, but I am ready.”

JULIAN PENARULZ, NO. 93 RED OIL JEANS-CATCHIT CAM CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO

Practice Time: 39th (42.577 seconds, 84.553 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 2/41

Qualifying Time: 34.722 seconds, 103.681 MPH

Qualifying Position: 31

Starting Position: 31

“We picked up a lot of speed and that’s a good thing. We are going to find some more, I promise you that. The guys repaired the issue with the motor and the brakes are fixed. Using my head tomorrow will result in a good finish for this team and my sponsors Red Oil Jeans and Catchit Cam. This will be my first career ARCA RE/MAX Series start, so I really want to make the best of it.”

PATRICK SHELTRA, NO. 60 CP CONCRETE PRODUCTS, US CONSTRUCTION, FLORAGANICS-BRADY RANCH CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO SS

Practice Time: 17th (31.522 seconds, 114.206 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 24/41

Qualifying Time: 30.646 seconds, 117.470 MPH

Qualifying Position: 11

Starting Position: 11

“The car is good. We picked up a little bit, so I am glad about that. We’re fighting a little bit of a handling issue with the car, but I think when the race rolls around tomorrow, we’ll be a-okay. My Sheltra Motorsports team didn’t disappoint me, so I have to give them some of the credit for our success in qualifying. It’s a long race tomorrow, so I am just going to take my time and be around for the last fifty laps or so. Another top-three finish would mean a lot to this team tomorrow and that’s our goal.”

BRYAN SILAS, NO. 11 NORTRAX-SHELL ROTELLA T CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO

Practice Time: 14th (31.413 seconds, 114.602 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 12/41

Qualifying Time: 30.830 seconds, 116.769 MPH

Qualifying Position: 14

Starting Position: 14

“We’re fine. The car is in good shape and we are going to be in awesome shape in race trim. This is a big race for me. We’ll have a lot of support from Nortrax tomorrow, so I really want to put together a good run. I know we can do that. We ran well here last year finishing in the top-20, but I’m looking for another top-10 finish tomorrow and I think with the support and guidance of my Fast Track Racing team, we’ll make that a reality.”

BILLY TANNER, NO. 07 CHEAPCARIBBEAN.COM CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO SS

Practice Time: 31st (32.970 seconds, 109.190 MPH)

Qualifying Draw: 6/41

Qualifying Time: 32.099 seconds, 112.153 MPH

Qualifying Position: 28

Starting Position: 28

“We’re still tight, but I’m confident in our race setup tomorrow. It’s a long race. We need to have a good run tomorrow, we’ve been through a lot this season and had a good run go bad last weekend at Springfield, so we want to make up for it tomorrow afternoon. I’m not worried; we’ve been in this position before (starting in the back) and been able to rally to the front. I know we’ll be able to do that again tomorrow.”

The Governor’s Cup 200 (200 laps/200 miles) is the 17th of 23 races on the 2007 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule. The 10th ARCA race held at The Milwaukee Mile is a two day show.
