Spicer brand with its driveshafts, U-joints, and axles will move to the primary sponsor position on the #4 Dana Dodge for this race only.

"We've had some good runs with the number 4 truck but unfortunately bad luck has kept us out of a top finish. I think Richmond may be different. I really like running that track and I won there in a Busch car so I'm pretty excited about what the Dana team can do."
