Ottawa, ON. (September 6, 2011) NASCAR driver Pierre Bourque returns to action in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series piloting the #00 AaronÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dream Machine Dodge this coming weekend at Barrie Speedway, a tricky 1/3 bullring track that will provide non-stop excitement for 300 laps of racing under the lights on Saturday September 10th.
This will be the first visit to Barrie Speedway for Bourque in the #00 AaronÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dream Machine Dodge and he is excited about the opportunity to compete at this challenging short track. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Being a one third mile oval itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s obviously a very tight trackÃ¢â‚¬Â explained Bourque. Ã¢â‚¬Å“And with the banking itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also a very fast track for the size and presents a real test to the driverÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s skillsÃ¢â‚¬Â he added.
Bourque has shown plenty of racing speed in the #00 AaronÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dream Machine Dodge during previous events this year and is happy to be returning to action this weekend. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We had some very positive runs out west on the ovals and ran up front for a lot of lapsÃ¢â‚¬Â said Bourque. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We also had a good handling car at those races and that will also be important at BarrieÃ¢â‚¬Â he stated.
All signs point to a thrilling weekend for the #00 AaronÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dream Machine Dodge team. Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be racing in front of some of the most knowledgeable race fans, the car weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had this year from DJK Racing is stronger than ever and DJÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s done very well at Barrie so I know weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have a good set up on the car and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m expecting weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be strong right from the startÃ¢â‚¬Â said Bourque.
Action for Pierre Bourque and the #00 AaronÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dream Machine team at Barrie Speedway begins Saturday with practice at 1:30PM. Qualifying will be at 5:45PM and the green flag for 300 laps of racing for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series teams waves at 8PM.
