ARCA Debut: After flirting in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for the past couple of years, Nick Tucker will attempt to make his ARCA RE/MAX Series debut this Saturday at USA International Speedway.

Limited Schedule Starts With Lakeland: Nick Tucker will run a limited ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule this season in the No. 67 Dodge Charger. Tucker will start his season with USA International Speedway followed with his next ARS (ARCA RE/MAX Series) event occurring at Kansas Speedway in April.

New Car; New Team; Same Goals Even though Nick Tucker will be driving a new Dodge Charger this weekend and working with a new team in Carter-2-Motorsports, Tucker's attitude and goals remain the same, victory! Tucker's prior racing experience on short tracks makes him a sleeper for the Construct Corps-PBG 250.

Carter-2-Motorsports, USA International Speedway Pre-Race Quotes:

Nick Tucker, driver of the No. 67 FreeFeds.org Dodge Charger:

On His First ARCA RE/MAX Series Start: "It's very exciting to be a part of the ARCA RE/MAX Series especially with Carter-2-Motorsports. We are very excited about USA International Speedway this weekend. The ARCA RE/MAX Series is full of energy and surrounded by great people, I'm now proud to be a part of the family."

On USA International Speedway: "It's a new ball game for the ARCA RE/MAX Series this weekend. It's a new race. A lot of people tested, but it doesn't always show everything. I expect the track to be very fast with some the field being very tight. The fans are going to see a great race from the stands. I hope we have a great race from inside the car."

On His Team: "Roger Carter II has taken a chance on me and I'll be forever grateful. The team has worked hard thrashing on my car making sure we'll have a competitive car for the race. Both of the team's cars look stout and I really think people are going to see great things from our team this weekend."

On The 2007 Season: "We're running a limited schedule, so it's a chance for us to take some gambles this season. We're going to have some great cars and motors. This is a year for me to learn, gain some knowledge and try to take Carter-2-Motorsports to victory lane, I think we can make that happen."
