Team press release
December 7, 2011, GRIMSBY, ON Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Jeff Lapcevich will compete in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series again in 2012 with Tim Hortons branding on his familiar family-owned #23 Dodge.
The Grimsby veteran recently renewed one of CanadaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s longest-running motorsports marketing partnerships, and his team is optimistic looking forward.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Signing our deal with Tim Hortons this early in the off-season gives us great optimism,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Lapcevich. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have one of the best partners in all of racing, but until an agreement is in place you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to get too excited.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Lapcevich has raced his Fastline Motorsports entry in most of the NASCAR CanadaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s races since the series began in 2007, and his children compete year-round in quarter midget sprint cars.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We had a good season this year,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Lapcevich. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The cars are competitive, and we made some great strides in 2011.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In recent years Lapcevich has kept his NASCAR schedule relatively close to home choosing to not make the western swing. While the series visited British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatoon, Lapcevich was focused on his children competing in the quarter midgets.
Cayden and Treyten Lapcevich have won numerous quarter midget titles across North America, and their schedules never end.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to do a lot of racing next year,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Lapcevich. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The boys started their indoor season recently in Ohio, and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re off to a great start.Ã¢â‚¬Â
