Race Information: Event: Winchester ARCA 200, Sunday, May 6 at 1:00 p.m. Local Time Track: Winchester Speedway Qualifying: Saturday, May 5 at 4:15 p.m. Local Time; Track Length: .5-mile high-banked paved oval.

Kansas Recap: ARS (ARCA RE/MAX Series) rookie Nick Tucker made his Kansas Speedway debut last Friday night in the Kansas Lottery $150 Grand. After qualifying on time (31) he shook down a brand new car to finish 27th.

Inaugural Event: Tucker, an employee for Evernham Motorsports will attempt to make his ARCA RE/MAX Series Winchester Speedway debut on Sunday. The team is bringing the same Dodge Charger that Tucker roared to a 15th place finish in his ARS debut at USA International Speedway in March. The machine also finished a solid 16th place finish two weeks ago at Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana.

Previous Short Track Experience: Tucker has two short track starts (half-mile and under) in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway. His best start and finish came at the tricky Martinsville Speedway where he qualified 33rd and finished a notable 20th.

Support The Team: FreeFeds.org will continue their primary sponsor of Tucker's Dodge at Winchester Speedway. A new sponsor to the ARCA RE/MAX Series this season, FreeFeds.org intent is simple. FreeFeds.org's sole purpose is to gain public support for adding parole for non-violent, non repeat offenders to the federal prison system. They are of the belief that the federal justice system is in need of a total reform. The organization, however, is mainly interested in working toward adding a system of parole for non-violent offenders as part of that overall reform.

And Thanks For Your Support: In addition to FreeFeds.org, Carter-2-Motorsports will also carry associate sponsorship from Explore America, The Idaho Observer, RVrentToGo.com, 100fold.net, and Accelerating Developments International (ADI).

Glad To Have You: Car owner James Hylton will assist Carter-2-Motorsports and driver Nick Tucker this weekend at Winchester Speedway. Hylton, a legendary name in NASCAR and ARCA will provide his wealth of knowledge hoping to secure C2M (Carter-2-Motorsports) their first career top-10 finish on Sunday.

Nick Tucker, driver of the No. 48 FreeFeds.org Dodge Charger:

On Kansas: "We learned a lot with the new car and that's important. We didn't have a whole lot of time in practice to figure things out, but we made the field on time and finished the race. We did everything we needed to do at Kansas. I'm ready to get back to short tracks."

On Winchester Speedway: "I am feeling good about this weekend. We're taking the same we finished 15th and 16th with this season. It has proven to be a good car; we just need a little luck. The car was capable of finishing in the top-five at Salem, but we had some minor issues that kept us at bay. I think everything will come into place and we'll be good on Sunday."

On His Team: "This Carter-2-Motorsports team can overcome anything. They have proved it over and over again. They are a hard and dedicated bunch. They are all hungry for another run like we had at Salem. They better be prepared, we might do some celebrating Sunday night."

On Points: "We're 22nd in owner's points. We've gained ten positions since Salem Speedway which is just two races and pretty impressive. We are working hard to establish a good team and I think we're making great strides. We have a chance to be in the top-20 by the time we roll into Kentucky next Friday."
