KNUPP GEARED UP FOR SALEM SHORT TRACK
Sidney, Ohio (9/14/05) -- When it comes to Salem Speedway Brandon Knupp, driver of the Mark Knupp Racing #96 will be the first to tell you he wouldn't mind seeing his name alongside some of the greatest in stock car racing history, with a victory on the high-banks at Salem Indiana. The storied oval of Salem Speedway has produced many a victory by legends in the motorsports world, Benny Parsons, Jack Bowsher and Tim Steele just to name a few. "To put my name in the record books with a victory at Salem with these guys, would be a huge accomplishment in itself." said Knupp, "I think we may have the car to do it this time. We've got that luck thing going on, we just haven't had any, but we're hoping to change that this weekend at Salem." Brandon added, "I like the style of Salem Speedway, she's a gnarly old legend, kind of like a Darlington, and I like that in a race track."
Knupp has cause to be geared up for Salem, his short track record has produced some strong runs, but never a victory. The Mark Knupp Racing Team is looking to change that this Saturday.
Brandon and the MKR Team will have their Mark Knupp Muffler & Tire Ford at Salem Speedway in Indiana for the ARCA RE/MAX Series one day event on Saturday September 17, with a practice session at 1:00pm, Pork Pole Qualifying at 4:00pm and the start of the Eddie Gilstrap Motors 200 set to roll off at 7:15pm.
