TJ Bell Looking for a Solid Finish at The Milwaukee Mile

* Looking for a Break in Milwaukee...The Copart 200 will mark TJ Bell's third Camping World Truck Series start at The Milwaukee Mile. In 2003, Bell started 21st and finished 28th. In 2008, he started 18th and finished 29th. He and his #11 Red Horse Racing team haven't had the best of luck so far this season. Bell seems to find himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. He has been caught up in accidents in five of the last six races but this team is not giving up. They know they are capable of great finishes every weekend and hope that The Milwaukee Mile will be the place to turn it around.

* Defiant Driver....There is no doubt that TJ Bell has his own style, but did you know that it's of his own creation? Bell launched his own clothing company, Defiant Clothing, in 2002. At the time he was racing sports cars and had a lot of down time in between races. He used the time to tap into another of his interests and Defiant Clothing was born. Defiant offers clothing for both men and women designed by Bell himself. You can learn more about Defiant or check out Bell's creativity at work at www.defiantclothing.com

Bowling for Bell...Before he takes to the track at The Milwaukee Mile, TJ Bell will be trying out his skills at a slower speed. He will compete against other Camping World Truck Series drivers in the sixth annual Bowling Bonanza presented by The Milwaukee Mile and Toyota. Don't be surprised if you see a strike or a spare out of Bell's team; he's got an ace in the hole. Bell will also have crew chief Rick Gay bowling beside him. Gay, was in a bowling league in his home state of New York and still owns his own bowling ball and shoes!

TJ Bell on racing at The Milwaukee Mile "I ran pretty well at The Milwaukee Mile last year so I'm excited to get back there. You can't really compare Milwaukee to anywhere else; it's one of a kind. It's a fast track and you can really feel the speed but you also have to use a ton of brake. It drives like a short track but feels really fast. This team has had some bad luck this season but we're going to get this monkey off our back and get this #11 to Victory Lane this summer."

Crew Chief Rick Gay on The Milwaukee Mile "We're taking a brand new truck to Milwaukee and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it performs. It's the first new truck that I've had a hand in building at Red Horse Racing from start to finish and it's the first new bumper to bumper truck that the #11 team has had this year. This race will also be our first "one day show" of the year and I really like that schedule because you don't have any time to stop, rethink anything, or lose your focus. Having practice, qualifying, and the race on one day keeps everyone focused on the prize."

Equipment Information The #11 Red Horse Racing team will compete with chassis # 136 in the Copart 200 at The Milwaukee Mile. This is a brand new truck that will take to the track for the first time in Milwaukee.
