Morgan-McClure Motorsports returned to true form in an impressive run in the Winston 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. Known for winning in restrictor plate races, the No. 4 Kodak MAX Film Monte Carlo piloted by Bobby Hamilton, led the race and worked up through the field to the front more than once. However, a late race mishap involving Mark Martin knocked the yellow car out of contention. Hamilton, who took a hard hit in the wreck, is sore today, but feels confident he will be ready to tackle "The Rock" during the upcoming weekend. Also, the anticipated announcement of a new driver for Morgan-McClure will not be made until a later date. It was thought to happen today, but will not materialize. "I am not ready to make an announcement about a new driver at this time," Larry McClure, team owner, stated. "We have not yet made a definite decision. I realize the importance of this announcement to the team, our sponsor and the media. "I cannot give an exact date on when a decision will be made. As soon as everything is in place, we will send out a release or hold a press conference. "I want to win a race before the end of this season. We had that opportunity on Sunday, but misfortune once again took it away. I am certain we can put ourselves in the position to win one of the remaining events. The car we ran at Rockingham in the spring was dominant. We will take the same car back in hopes of a visit to victory lane."
