KBIII Finishes 16th in Road Course Debut

MILLVILLE, N.J. (September 28, 2008) -- Ken Butler, III and his No. 22 Aaron's Lucky Dog team made their road course debut this weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park. When the race was ended early due to anticipated inclement weather, KBIII took the checkered flag in the 16th position in Sunday's Loud Energy Drink 150.

"I had a lot of fun for my first road course race," said Butler. "The guys did a great job on the car. I was disappointed that we ended the day early. I really think we could have continued to move up and gotten a better finish."

Butler qualified the No. 22 Aaron's Lucky Dog Dodge in the 16th position with an 86.872-second lap around the 2.3-mile road course.

The No. 22 came to pit road under the lap 25 caution flag for four tires, fuel, and an air pressure adjustment. Never falling off the lead lap, KBIII had to return to pit road on lap 36 and 39 for the team's assessment and work on some right front fender damage. The No. 22 Aaron's Lucky Dog Dodge had climbed to 16th when the race was ended early due to rain.

"The guys did great job getting this car together," said Crew Chief Jonathan Davis. "It's unfortunate that they ended the race early; I think we could have made a few more spots back."

KBIII is tied for ninth in the point standings with 3640 points, only 35 points out of the sixth position.
