Red Man Racing Team To Make 1997 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Debut
Central City, Ky. (May 22, 1997) -- Brewco Motorsports Inc. is set to make its NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut on May 24 in the Western Auto Parts America 200 at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Missouri with the No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet and driver Scot Walters. Located in Central City, Kentucky, Brewco Motorsports will enter eight Craftsman Truck Series events in 1997 with David Green, Mark Green and Walters alternating driving duties. In 1995, Brewco Motorsports was formed when team owner Clarence Brewer Jr. launched a NASCAR Busch Series team with driver M. Green and entered two races. Securing sponsorship with Swedish Match North America and its Timber Wolf brand of moist snuff, the team competed in 10 races in 1996 and is currently competing full-time in 1997. In addition to his race team, Brewer owns and operates Brewco 360 Collision Repair Inc., an industry leader in the manufacturing of specialized equipment for collision repair, industrial spraying, retail carpet, furniture and wood pallet industries in Central City. "I have very high expectations for our Red Man Truck team," said Brewer. "All of our drivers are very experienced. Our goal is to challenge for the win each time we are on the track." Walters, 29, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, competed full-time in the NASCAR Slim Jim All Pro Series from 1993 to 1995, winning the 1993 Rookie-of-the-Year title. In 1996, Walters had his most successful season to date. Competing in only eight Slim Jim All Pro Series races, Walters scored two wins (Winchester, Indiana and Homestead, Florida) and scored one pole (Louisville, Kentucky). "This is the greatest opportunity," said Walters. "I'm able to move into the next level of racing and learn from two great drivers." D. Green, 39, competing for the NASCAR Winston Cup Series Rookie-of-the-Year honors this season, will make his 1997 Craftsman Truck Series debut at the Nazareth Speedway on June 29. The Owensboro, Kentucky native is no stranger to winning, earning the 1994 NASCAR Busch Series Championship and scoring five wins and 18 poles in his seven year career in the Busch Series. D. Green has one career start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. "This is an exciting young team," said D. Green. "There is great personal satisfaction being involved in the development of a new team. Clarence and the whole team have proven they are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to improve." M. Green, 38, is competing full-time in the NASCAR Busch Series driving Brewco Motorsports No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The middle Green brother, between older brother David and younger brother Jeff, will make his NASCAR Craftsman debut at the Milwaukee Mile on July 5. "I tested the truck twice and it feels very similar to my Timber Wolf car," said M. Green. "I don't expect to have to 'learn' to drive the truck. This will be exciting." Mark Crumpler, 37, a native of Thomasville, North Carolina, is the crew chief on the No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet. He joins Brewco Motorsports after working for Bryant Racing Products and for many seasons in the Busch Series with several drivers, including David Green, Elton Sawyer and Patty Moise. "I work with Mark and Scot in the shop and worked with David in 1995. I have a great relationship and bond with all three," said Crumpler. "They have a lot of confidence in me and I am totally confident in their abilities." Brewco Motorsports will use the 1997 season developing and preparing for the future. Long-term goals for the team include competing full-time in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 1998.
