KNUPP READY TO TAKE ON SALEM'S LOT

Sidney, Ohio's Brandon Knupp says he's ready to take on "Salem's Lot," not the witches, but the wizards of the famed Salem Speedway in Indiana, with names like Schrader, Jarrett and Kimmel the 19 year old has a lot to look forward to.

"I'm ready for Salem, places like this are where my roots are, short track racing is where everybody's roots are and you gotta love a place like Salem," said Brandon, from the Mark Knupp Racing shop in Ohio.

Knupp has cause to be excited about heading back to the half-mile highbanks of Salem, in the spring event last season he qualified 13th and drove to a strong 4th place finish. Brandon is also carrying the force of a 4th place finish at the most recent ARCA RE/MAX Series event at Nashville Superspeedway in March.

"We've been working pretty hard and some long hours, getting ready for this upcoming race, I spent a little more time in North Carolina than I wanted to working on our engine deal," says Brandon, "but it'll pay off in the end."

Brandon and the MKR Team will have the SHOW CONTROL #96 Ford at the Salem Speedway in Salem Indiana on Saturday April, 23 for practice and Pork Pole Qualifying with the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 set to roll off at 1:00pm local time on Sunday April, 24.
