* Butch Miller and the Bobby Hamilton Racing DANA/Dodge team are looking to record their second top 10 finish of the season at Mesa Marin Raceway. Miller's confidence is overwhelming that he and the DANA team will be a factor in top 10 primarily because he has finished 4 of 5 races held at the half-mile track in the top 10. Miller's finishes at the tight Southern California bullring have been impressive but nothing is more amazing than the fact that over four years he has failed to finish only 2 laps at the raceway. Unfortunately the one thing that has alluded his grasp is a victory, but that may all change soon. "I feel really good about our chances here," said Miller. "This is the type of track I raced on and won for most of my racing career. So I think people better look out, because we will be a factor."
* After last weeks running of the NAPACARD 200, Butch Miller and the DANA Racing team moved into 9th in laps lead, and 10th in miles lead with three events on the 1999 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series schedule completed.
* The Butch Miller Bobby Hamilton Racing DANA/Dodge team has been hard at work over the last few weeks in their Lebanon, Tennessee shop preparing the #4 DANA/Dodge for its first race of the season. The #4 team will be driven by team owner Bobby Hamilton in five NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events this year. The first, next week at Martinsville Speedway. "We are very pleased with the start of the 1999 season," said Armedee Nadeau Manager of DANA Motorsports. "With Butch's performance thus far this year there is no doubt that we are heading in the right direction to get our first win. And now to have the opportunity to get Bobby behind the wheel of another DANA truck. I know that the information that the team gathers will just help us to attain our goals for the year."
