“Cayuga Marketing Partners Moves Forward To Race Kentucky Speedway”

Patrick Sheltra
WHITESVILLE, Kentucky (July 11, 2008) - - Officials from Sheltra Motorsports announced today that Groupe Beton Brunet will return as the primary marketing partner for the ARCA RE/MAX Series (ARS) next stop at Kentucky Speedway for next Friday night’s Kentucky ARCA 150.

Groupe (pronounced Group) Beton (pronounced Be-Ton) Brunet (pronounced Brew-Nay) joined Sheltra Motorsports for their inaugural trip to Cayuga Motor Speedway last month. Sheltra qualified 17th before marching forward to lead 11 laps before late race setbacks issued a disappointing 18th place finish.

Groupe Beton Brunet has more than 75 years experience in the underground/infrastructure industry throughout Eastern Canada. Groupe Beton Brunet grown substantially in adding (7) new acquisitions and various product lines. Groupe Beton Brunet has expanded their markets to include the United States with a plant located in Florida.

“We’re thrilled to have Groupe Beton Brunet back on board for Kentucky,” said driver Patrick Sheltra. “While we were disappointed with our Cayuga finish, everyone including Groupe Beton Brunet was pleased with the performance. We’re heading back to Kentucky Speedway, our hometown track looking for a win. Hopefully all the components will play out and we can celebrate in victory lane.”

Bernard Brunet, President of Groupe Beton Brunet offered, “We’ve very excited to be back onboard with the Sheltra Motorsports team for Kentucky next weekend. The team did a magnificent job at Cayuga Motor Speedway despite all of the adversity they faced. We look forward to seeing Patrick and the team up front and in contention for the win under the lights next Friday night.”

Returning with the same Dodge Charger that Sheltra Motorsports scored an seventh place finish with earlier this season, the team hopes to exit the 11th race of the season with their sixth top-10 performance of the year.

“Kentucky Speedway has been statistically a good race track for us,” offered Sheltra. “We’re not worried about not participating in the recent open ARCA RE/MAX Series test, we’re just focused on going to win. There is no hesitation that when the green flag drops next Friday night, we’ll be a contender.”

Entering Kentucky, Sheltra has 35 ARCA RE/MAX Series starts to his credit with a career best finish of second at Toledo Speedway (May 2008) with two additional top-five finishes (third) at Illinois State Fairgrounds (August 2007), (fourth) at Berlin Raceway (July 2007) while holding additional top-10s at Michigan International Speedway (June 2008), Kentucky Speedway (May 2008), Kansas Speedway (April 2008), Iowa Speedway (April 2008), Kentucky Speedway (June 2007), DuQuoin State Fairgrounds (September 2007) and Toledo Speedway (October 2007). An eighth place qualifying effort at Kansas Speedway (April 2008) is Sheltra’s best time trials efforts to date. He has controlled the ARCA field twice for 15 laps.

The Kentucky ARCA 150 (150 miles/100 laps) is the 11th of 21 events on the 2008 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule. The 17th ARCA race at Kentucky Speedway is a one-day show. Practice begins Friday July 18 with a two hour and fifteen minute practice session planned from 11:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. ARCA SIM Factory pole qualifying is slated to begin at 4:30 p.m. with live television coverage on SPEED. The field will take the green flag later that evening shortly after 8:00 p.m. The race will be televised live on SPEED with additional race coverage including live timing and scoring available online at arcaracing.com. All times are local.
