TJ Bell Hopes To End Season On A High Note
* Bell at Homestead...The Ford 200 will mark TJ Bell's third start at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In two previous starts at the 1.5-mile Florida oval, Bell has finished inside the top-20 both times. In 2007, he started 20th and finished 17th. Last season, in 2008, Bell started 19th and finished 12th.
* New Sponsor On Board For Homestead...Sea Land Environmental and Time Bandit Fishing Vessel are teaming up with the #11 Red Horse Racing team for the Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Time Bandit joined forces with Sea Land Environmental, a company that develops and manufactures eco-friendly products, to make the Time Bandit the first boat in the Bering Sea to "go green." The partnership will make the environment cleaner because the Time Bandit will burn 30% less fuel than before and have 90% cleaner emissions coming from the exhaust stack.
* Strong End To 2009...The #11 Red Horse Racing team started the 2009 season with an 11th place finish at Daytona International Speedway and a season high, fifth place finish at Auto Club Speedway in February. They are looking to end the 2009 campaign on the same high note they started it. Last weekend in Phoenix Bell raced his way to a 13th place finish. Now he is looking to a top-five a Homestead to end the year just as it started.
* R&R In The Off Season...TJ Bell and his fiance' Alexis Gamboa are heading west for the Winter. Both of their families spend the holidays in the Reno, Nevada area so they will be going back and forth between Reno and Mooresville for most of the off season.
TJ Bell on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway "I'm really excited for the last race of the season. It's been a bumpy road for us at times but we stuck together and worked through it as a team. I'm so proud of these guys. We are heading to Homestead with the goal or earning a top-five finish. That would make us all feel good going into the off season and it would help us in our sponsor search for next year."
Crew Chief Rick Gay on Homestead-Miami Speedway "Our team is heading to homestead with a different goal that almost everyone else. We don't have to worry about points right now; we just want to win the race. While the other guys are worrying about maintaining their points position, we can take risks that will put TJ in the position to bring home a great finish for this team. It would be great to end the season on such a high note as we prepare for next year."
Equipment Information The #11 Red Horse Racing team will compete with chassis # 110 in the Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This is the same chassis that Bell raced at Chicago where he started 23rd and finished 15th.
