COMES TO CANADA

Ignition - - Nascar Pinty's Series -

fin­ished 14th out of 26 cars. I'm 53 now, and I'm not go­ing to beat those top guys, but it's pretty cool to still be rac­ing with them. Look at Tagliani, he was lead­ing the Indy 500 a few months ago, and An­drew Ranger, he fin­ished third in an Indy Car race in Toronto years ago - I'm still get­ting to race with guys like that."

The other half of the duo has only been be­hind the wheel for one race, and Lynch, who last raced in a Pinty's NASCAR Canada race in 2010 added, "It's win-win - I get to get back be­hind the wheel of a Pinty's car, and I get to see my good friend Brian get to do some more rac­ing as well. Sun­set Speed­way didn't go as well as it could have, but we are also about six years be­hind all these guys in knowl­edge. Six years of small changes added up. We wound up 11th, and Brian has two top-15 fin­ishes so far, so we can't re­ally com­plain."

Lynch was also quick to point out that this isn't the swan song to his rac­ing ca­reer. "I'm still a few years away from be­ing done with rac­ing. We're go­ing to do our two ovals in the Pinty's Se­ries, but I'm also rac­ing a Late Model in the APC United Late Model Tour. I would love to find a spon­sor and go back to rac­ing full­time on the Pinty's Tour, but for now I'm more than happy to spend some time rac­ing with Bryan."

... I wanted one last shot at rac­ing on the big­gest stage in Canada.”
