U.S. Army Marches to Dover With Kraig Kinser

Dover, DE (May 31, 2006) - Kraig Kinser and the No. 46 Morgan-Dollar Motorsports (MDM) Silverado team will have the U.S. Army on board when they unload for this weekend's AAA Insurance 200 for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) at Dover International Speedway (DIS). This will mark the second time Kinser's truck has flown the Army colors this season.

In his first full-time season in the (NCTS), Kinser's Army sponsored Silverado is a joint effort between MDM and MB2 Motorsports. The Bloomington, IN native joined the MB2 driver development program last season.

"It is an honor to have the Army on our truck this weekend at Dover," said Kinser. "The men and women around the world defending this country are the true heroes. I hope we can do them proud with a solid run."

Kinser faces the daunting task of another track he has never seen. But the NCTS Raybestos Rookie feels like he is up to the task.

"I am looking forward to the race on Friday," observed Kinser. Going to all of these places that I have never raced on before is really cool. Racing on a concrete surface with the high banking will be awesome, and I grew up racing on short tracks, so I am optimistic about the race this weekend. I am not really worried about the banking, to tell you the truth. I have driven at enough race tracks in the sprint car to be used to the banking at these tracks. It will take some time to get used to the track during practice, but I am just looking forward to racing at Dover."

The 21-year old concluded by saying, "Randy (Goss, crew chief) has a lot of experience racing at Dover in all three NASCAR series. He understands the concrete surface and what kind of a setup we need to get maximum tire wear. It gives me confidence knowing that I am really the only one on our Army team who is a rookie on the track."
