Five Straight Weeks of Racing Show Steady Progress at Green Light Racing

The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will conclude six straight weeks of racing this Saturday at the Memphis Motorsports Park. Tim Sauter and the Lester Buildings sponsored Green Light Racing team have shown a vast improvement over that stretch with only one finish outside the top-twenty. Memphis is one of Tim's favorite tracks that the series will visit all year and expectations among the team are high for another strong run for the Lester Buildings Chevy.

Sauter has moved from 26th to 18th in drivers points over the last five weeks and hopes another good showing this weekend at Memphis will vault him towards the top-fifteen. "We've been getting better and better as a team. I'm starting to understand how differently the truck drives than the Busch car and we're figuring out what we need to do to keep improving the handling of our racetruck," Sauter said. "We've made progress but we can't be satisfied. We have to keep working hard to improve."

The Green Light Racing team is bringing the same racetruck that ran near the top-ten most of the race at Milwaukee last Friday night. "It's probably the best piece we have right now," Sauter explained. "Doug and the guys are going to make some subtle changes to help us with forward bite, but the set-up is really similar to how we ran at The Mile. I'm real excited to get to Memphis, our motor was real strong last week and Carl Wegner has another good one for us this weekend. I'm expecting to run in the top-15, but our sights are set on giving Lester Buildings that first top-ten."
