"You're basically just straddling a motor that happens to have wheels." The team has scored USAC victories at 61 different tracks in sixteen states. Needless to say, it's been their focus, ingenuity, and teamwork that keeps them adding to this impressive streak. Next up for the team will be a four-car effort for the Silver anniversary running of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. No doubt they will excel here as well, thanks to their highly educated choices in products and honed skills behind the wheel and in the shop.
