Lally Heading to Battle the Monster Mile
Mooresville, NC (May 12, 2011) – TRG Motorsports driver Andy Lally is looking for a good finish for the No. 71 Interstate Moving Services Ford Fusion in the show this weekend as the team heads to Dover International Speedway for the running of the FedEx 400 Benefitting Autism Speaks.
Crew Chief Doug Richert, who has one career Dover win, is looking forward to the weekend. “Our guys have worked very hard this week to get the car ready for Dover. We spent a lot of hours on the 7-post and pull-down rigs preparing the car. A solid run at Dover would be just what the team needs right now.”
Team owner Kevin Buckler is optimistic about the team’s performance as well. “We are looking forward to having a solid day on Saturday in qualifying and earn a strong finish on Sunday. We had some incredible momentum after the terrific run we had at Richmond as we watched Andy go toe-to-toe with some of the best in the business. It would be nice to be able to have the same momentum from a quality run at Dover as we head home to Charlotte for the next two weeks.”
Rookie driver Andy Lally is preparing to make his first start at the Monster Mile. “I’ve spent some time on the simulator and been watching a lot of in-car footage. Some of the other drivers have been able to provide me with some advice too. My guys have worked extremely hard to prepare the car this week. Doug’s given me great cars at Talladega and Richmond. We had our best and second-best finishes of the season in his first two races with the team. We just have to do our best in the limited amount of practice we have, so that we can keep up with the racetrack throughout the weekend.”
