Columbus, OH (Wednesday August 6th, 2003) - - Capital City Motorsports announced today that Veteran ARCA RE/MAX Series driver Willie Green will pilot the No. 83 Quaker Steak & Lube Ford F-150 this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway.
CCM (Capital City Motorsports) team owner Greg Sarff was originally scheduled to make his NASCAR debut this weekend from the 1.333-mile track located in Lebanon, Tennessee, but an accident while preparing to come to Nashville last weekend has halted his debut, while he continues to recuperate from his injuries he suffered to his hand.
Sarff, who is also a veteran driver and team owner in the ARCA RE/MAX Series is disappointed that he will not be racing this weekend, but excited about heading to the track as a team owner.
"I never saw this coming, but it's all a part of life, I have the up most confidence in Willie Green and my Capital City Motorsports crew, and I have a feeling we should do pretty good this weekend."
Green hates to enter the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this way, but his thankful to his friend Greg, for giving him the opportunity. "I hate this for Greg, but I'm hoping to give the entire Capital City Motorsports and Quaker Steak & Lube a good run this weekend."
For Willie, a resident of Kentucky Friday night will also mark his NCTS debut. "I've have some experience on these types of tracks in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, but I'm not sure what to expect in the Trucks, it will be a learning experience for sure."
It will mark an all veteran ARCA team moving to NASCAR this weekend, as long time ARCA RE/MAX Series owner and former Winston Cup driver James "Harvey" Hylton will be calling the shorts for the No. 83 Truck this weekend. "I'm looking forward to working in Trucks this weekend," said a smiling Hylton. "It's been a lot time since I've actually worked in NASCAR, but to have the opportunity to crew chief for CCM and Willie, I am excited."
Greg Sarff, who holds a slew of top ten performances in ARCA, will be working with Jerick Johnson, and Chris Comalander in ARCA this weekend, as both drivers will be carrying the No. 38 and No. 83, both numbers owned by Sarff. "My crew is going to be helping out both the teams the best they can this weekend, and I'm also going to do the best that I can, these are both incredible drivers and I hope they have fun this weekend."
Sarff, a resident of Columbus Ohio, is scheduled to return to ARCA competition in September when they roll into Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL. "I would love to be racing in Nashville this weekend, but I'll be back and ready to race at Chicago."
It is not known at this time when Sarff will once again attempt to make his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut.
