Chris Eggleston Ready to Make Some Noise in Nashville

Chris Eggleston turned a few heads at the Martinsville Speedway last week in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut narrowly missing a top-ten coming home in eleventh place. This week the young driver hopes to make some more noise for the SS Green Light team as he makes his second truck series start at the Nashville Superspeedway on Friday night.

Eggleston is ready for race number two in the NCWTS, "Last week was beyond anything I could have asked for," the Colorado native said. "Butch (Miller) and the guys did a fantastic job and I'm really looking forward to running with these guys in Nashville."

Chris finished third at the Nashville Superspeedway last year in the ASA Late Model Challenge Series race at the high-banked mile and a third speedway so he is no stranger to going fast on the concrete track just south of the Music City.

"We ran pretty good at Nashville in the late model last year, it's a great track," Eggleston said. "I'm excited to get back there, it's a beautiful facility and a fun place to go. The fans are great in Nashville."

Veteran Butch Miller will again call the shots for Eggleston this weekend at Nashville, "I just love my little driver! He drives very smart and he is so level headed, I could not ask for a better pupil to work with."

"I have to say I've been working harder this year that I had planned, but right now I just love my job and I love working with Chris. I really hope we can find some additional sponsorship to get him some more races behind the wheel of this No. 21 truck."

H2O Fire Protection will back Eggleston's efforts in the NCWTS at Nashville and Kansas Speedway next month. Chris' 2010 schedule could be expanded if additional sponsorship can be secured. "I think we proved last week at Martinsville that we can run in the truck series," Eggleston said. "If we can find some additional partners we can expand our program with SS Green Light Racing in 2010."
