Andy Houston says "No Target Needed on Team Marines Chevy at Gateway"

Charlotte, NC (July 18, 2001) -- Team Rensi Motorsports announced today, Andy Houston will drive the No. 25 Team Marines Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo in this weekend's CARQUEST Autoparts 250 at Gateway International Raceway.

The Hickory, NC. native, is the youngest of three brothers, all being racers throughout their lives, but Houston's has gone to the highest level. At the age of 17, well before his run for 2001 Winston Cup "rookie of the year" honors, Houston began racing Street Stocks, advancing to the Limited Sportsman Division and in 1990 began racing Late Models.

Houston's NASCAR career began in 1997, competing in four NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events. He then drove full time over the next three years, earning three wins; New Hampshire, Homestead and Portland, 24 top-five's and 42 top-ten's. Throughout the years, Houston found time to compete in four Busch series races, as well, two in 1996 and 1998. His dabbling into the Busch series didn't distract him though. Houston was committed to his success in the Truck series, ultimately finishing out the 2000 season third in the point standings and looking ahead to his future endeavors.

Team Rensi Public Relations Representative, Shelly DeCaro stated, "David Donohue will continue his development and relationship with Team Rensi Motorsports by testing and making appearances scheduled for the Marine Corps Recruiting Command."
