Handling Issues Relegate Nemechek To 28th-Place Finish

RICHMOND, Va. (May 6, 2006) -- Joe Nemechek couldn't find the rhythm nor the grip at Richmond International Raceway Saturday night and the end result was a 28th-place finish for the U.S. Army driver.

"We had handling issues and never could get going," said Nemechek, who started the Crown Royal 400 Nextel Cup race from the 17th position. "The Army Chevrolet was both tight and loose at different times of the race. We made a number of adjustments, but nothing seemed to click tonight. We'll get better -- there's plenty of Army fight on this team."

Nemechek will be looking for a better result next Saturday night at the famed Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. In his last two races at Darlington, he had finishes of eighth and 11th respectively.

"We've had good runs in Darlington in the past and hopefully next week's race will put an end to this slump," said Nemechek.
