Team Yellow and driver David Stremme do it once again.
Teamwork, preparation and performance lead to yet another top-ten and top-rookie finish.
FT. MITCHELL, KY (June 15, 2003) - In a performance of consistency and determination that would make a veteran proud, driver David Stremme led the Team Yellow #1 car to tenth place in the Meijer 300 at Kentucky Speedway. Starting eighth as the highest-qualifying rookie, Stremme finished as the lead rookie. This is the sixth time this season Stremme has been the top finishing rookie, out of seven Busch races he has competed in.
Stremme's top-ten finish at Kentucky Speedway is even more impressive considering that he had never seen the 1.5-mile facility before Friday's practice and qualifying sessions. "It's absolutely the fastest and the biggest track I've ever raced on. It was a lot of fun and another opportunity for me to learn from my teammates."
The tenth-place finished further solidified Team Yellow's 4th place position in the owner's points competition. Saturday night's finish is the team's 9th top-ten this season and follows Stremme's third-place finish in the previous race in Nashville.
"My Team Yellow teammates gave me a great car and a great set-up," Stremme said. "We had a good practice and qualified pretty well. I probably should be happy with a top-ten finish, but Team Yellow isn't satisfied with just top-tens. We know that we can - and we will - perform even better."
During the race, Stremme avoided several accidents leading to cautions that brought the field into the pits. During each of the pit stops, the Yes We Can spirit of Team Yellow produced a series of fast, well-coordinated pit stops that consistently kept the #1 Team Yellow Dodge among the leaders.
"My teammates helped me learn a lot this week. The teamwork helped me this weekend and it will help get us ready for some of the bigger tracks we'll be running on in the weeks ahead," Stremme said.
After a weekend off, the NASCAR Busch Series will be at The Milwaukee Mile for the GNC Live Well 250 on Sunday, June 29. The race will be aired live on FX and broadcast live on MRN beginning at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Qualifying for the event will take place Saturday, June 28 at 1:05 p.m. EDT and will be aired on Speed.
