Only 10 Drivers Remain in Roush's "Race for the Ride"

CONCORD, N.C. -- After three days of testing at the legendary North Wilkesboro Speedway last week, Roush Racing is down to 10 drivers competing for a seat in their Craftsman Truck Series entries and the opportunity to be the next driver in their successful development program. The second and final round of testing will take place Monday, November 15 at another famed track, Darlington Raceway.

"Narrowing down the list to 10 was much more difficult than any of us anticipated," said team owner Jack Roush. "I was very impressed by the level of talent we saw at North Wilkesboro. It was a very challenging track for all of the drivers, but they rose to the occasion.

"For the next test we wanted another track that would be just as technical and demanding. Darlington was an obvious choice. It is difficult, even for the most seasoned veterans. The 10 drivers we have selected will have their work cut out for them."

Roush Racing is not releasing the names of the 10 drivers at this time.

Roush Racing is a subsidiary of Livonia, Mich., based Roush Industries that operates nine motorsports teams; five in NASCAR Nextel Cup with drivers Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards, two in the Busch Series with Martin, Kenseth and Biffle, and two in the Craftsman Truck Series with drivers Jon Wood and Edwards.
