"My sponsors DRIVING.CA, CANADA.COM, WORKING.COM, and DOSE.CA are on board and we are very much intrigued by where this Craftsman Truck race may lead us to next. The parent company CANWEST-GLOBAL, Canada's biggest media company, is very much interested in NASCAR and I am very proud to be working with them on this second season of our program."
The team that Bourque will drive for this weekend is a familar one to him.
"I am very happy to be racing with Andy Hillenburg's Fast Track team again. We did a lot of work together last year in the Busch East and ARCA series. We had a chance to shake down the truck this week and I expect us to qualify and make the most of the opportunity during the race."
