NASCAR CANADIAN TIRE SERIES: Mohawks to ride with Bourque in Montreal

CONCORD, NC (July 31, 2008) – As the NASCAR Nationwide Series makes a historic appearance in Canada this weekend, Pierre Bourque will take part in the weekend of racing at Montreal’s Ile Notre Dame on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Bourque will be entered in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series event at the road course on Saturday.

The #29 Whitlock Motorsports-prepared Dodge that Bourque will drive is being sponsored by Mohawk Internet Technologies for this race. It is the first venture for the Mohawk people into NASCAR racing and Bourque is excited about the partnership.

“I am really excited about this groundbreaking collaboration with Mohawk Internet Technologies,” said Bourque. “To my knowledge, this is the first time a MOHAWK business has entered the world of NASCAR. Not only am I thrilled to have their support, but I am also a longtime client and I can attest first-hand to the quality and performance of their cutting-edge services and technology.”

It’s not just Bourque who is excited either. In fact, both sides of the partnership are thrilled with the arrangement for the weekend.

“In over 400 years, the Mohawk people have never been defeated in battle, and it is with that knowledge and sense of history that we are proud to place the name of Mohawk Internet Technologies on the car of #29, Mr. Pierre Bourque, whom we believe will carry that tradition forward,” said Chuck Barnett, Board of Supervisors for Mohawk Internet Technologies.

Bourque is in a great position to carry along that tradition. He is a veteran of both road racing and stock car disciplines and the Montreal event will require proficiency in both areas for a driver to take home a good finish.

Mohawk Internet Technologies (MIT) is a unique business initiative of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake (MCK) and its business partners. Keeping with the historic tradition of the North American trading post, MIT serves as one of the predominant electronic business centers on the Internet. MIT is not a bank, casino, or on-line store, but rather the internet service provider for numerous e-businesses who enjoy fast, reliable internet access in a free-enterprise environment specifically geared towards cross-business alliances and development.

The NASCAR Canadian Tire event at Montreal will take place on Saturday, August 2nd.
