Last Week At Chicagoland:

The CAP Racing crew's day ended on lap two last weekend, after the No. 12 Chevrolet of Kerry Earnhardt slid directly into the path of the No. 46 Civil Air Patrol Chevrolet after hitting the outside retaining wall. Lewis, Jr. admits that he is still a little it sore from the impact but that he is ready to make up some ground in the points and continue his quest to score that elusive first career win.

Driver, Ashton Lewis, Jr. on NHIS:

"We haven't had the best of luck at New Hampshire but we have had some pretty good runs there. In 2001, we had electrical problems. Last year, after qualifying 10th, we got caught up in that accident on the first restart that pretty much ruined our day. Hopefully, this year we'll have a little luck to go along with a good performance. We're taking the car we last raced in Milwaukee with a similar style set-up. The track has recently been repaved and from what a couple of drivers that have tested there have told me is that it hasn't changed it a whole lot. Supposedly, there's a little more grip and although they widened the groove some, there is still that one preferred line. Last year, we saw a little more side-by-side racing than in years past, but I think it's still going to tough to pass. You either need to be a little bit better than the car in front of or hope that they're going to make a mistake and you can capitalize on it."

Equipment:

Lewis, Jr. will drive chassis No. 11 this weekend at Hew Hampshire International Speedway. This is the same chassis that he drove earlier this season at Milwaukee posting a 12th place finish.

On To The Wind Tunnel:

For the first time this season, Lewis Motorsports is taking two cars to the General Motors wind tunnel in Detroit, MI this week.
