Marathon's "American Spirit" ready for the Brickyard

Mooresville, NC (8/2/05) Stuart Kirby is ready to take the #51 Marathon Chevy to the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard knowing it will be one of his toughest challenges yet. After a very solid practice in Indy two weeks ago, the Marathon Chevy is poised to qualify at the Brickyard. "I think it will take a 49.50 (seconds) or better to make the race this weekend," Kirby said confidently. "Because of the new rules and the quantity and quality of entrants, however, it will be one of the toughest qualifying runs of the year."

Competitive Edge Motorsports (CEM) and Stuart Kirby will attempt to make it three in a row for this young team. "The more time we spend together, the better we get. All the guys in the shop are doing an outstanding job with the preparation of these cars and getting the Marathon Chevrolet ready to compete," said team owner, Joe Auer

CEM is also sporting a different paint scheme for the Brickyard. Marathon's "American Spirit" motor oil will be on the 51 Chevy with the American Flag on the sides.
