September 19, 2005 – Bryan Cathcart and the Meyers Transport/Peterborough Homes/Parkview Homes Dodge team prepared for the final race of the CASCAR Super Series schedule at Kawartha Speedway hoping to complete their season with a solid outing. Mission accomplished!
The Meyers Transport/Peterborough Homes/Parkview Homes Dodge team was worried about being down on engine power after qualifying 26th to start the 250 lap Ram Tough 250 presented by the Ontario Dodge Dealers but also felt they had a car that would race well.
From the start Cathcart was able to maneuver through the traffic on the wide, high banked 3/8 mile oval and pick up several positions. Cathcart continued to move his Meyers Transport/Peterborough Homes/Parkview Homes Dodge through the pack and was up to 15th spot at the mid way point of the race. “It wasn’t any one thing, but the car drove well and we kept getting better, I just tried to keep it going” said Cathcart”.
By lap 188 Cathcart had moved up further and was sitting just outside the top ten. “The rest of the way I just tried to stay smooth, keep out of any trouble and complete the race with a good finish. The Meyers Transport/Peterborough Homes/Parkview Homes Dodge team would finish the race 11th, gaining a total of 15 positions from the start.
“It was a great day for everyone” smiled Cathcart afterwards. “My team worked really hard all year for this and it’s nice for all the guys, we’ve got a really good group here and they deserve this. I don’t think I did much different other than my water bottle malfunctioned and I couldn’t get a drink for the entire race, maybe we should think about not having one next year joked the driver afterwards”.
