Blake Feese; Sadler Racing Look To Continue Hot Streak In Chicagoland
JOLIET, Illinois (September 6, 2007) - - Next up for the ARCA RE/MAX Series is a yearly trip to Chicagoland Speedway and for Blake Feese and his Sadler Racing team it's another opportunity to shine.
The duo most recently connected at Nashville Superspeedway last month and for the third time this season the group racked in their third straight top-10 finish. But as the team returns to the circuit, the organization is looking to return to the top-five and put themselves in contention for the win in Saturday's Chicagoland 200.
The Sadler Racing team will not carry their familiar No. 95 this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. With an increased chance of rain, Sadler Racing has aligned with Benning Motorsports and will carry the No. 8 this weekend in Joliet. Feese will race in Saturday's event should ARCA SIM Factory pole qualifying be rained out thanks to the owner points, Benning Motorsports has retained this season.
"We're looking forward to getting back to business," said Feese, driver of the No. 8 Sadler Racing Dodge. "We have some unfinished work in the ARCA RE/MAX Series and I am hungry for a win, so hopefully we can put the pieces together to make this weekend a memorable one."
The team's off to a good start to make that weekend a promising one. The team is bringing the same automobile they competed with at Kansas Speedway, Kentucky Speedway and most recently Nashville Superspeedway. With three impressive performances in the books, odds are the team will be in the mix again this weekend.
"It's a good car that we're bringing," continued Feese, a two-time winner in the ARCA RE/MAX Series. "The car has been extremely strong on the mile-and-a-half track and Chicagoland fits that characteristic. We missed the setup at Nashville just a little bit, but we were still able to recover. Now, we'll put a package together that we think will work and see what we can deliver."
Continuing their association with the Scottish Rite and the Fuel Performance Catalyst (FPC), Feese and the Sadler Racing are looking forward to giving them another superb finish.
"It's an extreme honor and pleasure to continue to promote the Scottish Rite and FPC," said Feese. "We've had several good runs this year and that makes everyone look good. Our goal heading into the weekend is to put our No. 8 in victory lane and we're not going to forget that on race day."
Despite not participating in the open test at Chicagoland last month, the lack of track time at the Joliet speed plant doesn't seem to faze Feese.
"We feel we have a baseline setup that will put us solidly in the charts," sounded Feese who will make his ninth career ARS start Saturday. "There is no doubt in my mind that we made the right decision by not testing. I am surrounded by a great team full of talented people, everyone is excited about Saturday's race and I would like nothing more than return this team to victory lane."
Sadler Racing still has openings on their Dodge Charger for the remainder of the 2007 season. Immediate one race or long term sponsorship positions are available. Contact the team today and see how the ARCA RE/MAX Series provides a successful ROI (Return-On-Investment).
