Cale Gale Happy With Busch Debut At Nashville

Lebanon, TN. -Competing in his first ever NASCAR Busch Series event Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway in the Federated Auto Parts 300, 21 year old Cale Gale, driving for Phoenix Racing and James Finch, finished in the 20th position. His qualifying effort landed him a starting spot on the outside of row five. He posted the fastest time of the day in the final practice with a speed of 160.974.

"My inexperience showed on the first restart" Gale said. "I got shuffled to the outside and then it was like a freight train came past me. It was all part of the learning experience I've got to go through".

"We had one bad round of pit stops and lost track position and got a lap down and pretty much stayed there the rest of the night"

Gale said it was a thrill to race with Nextel Cup stars like Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick, Greg Biffle and Kyle Busch.

Gale also said the incident with Boris Said was something he could not help. He said the car just got loose and he's sorry it happened to a driver of Boris Said's caliber. "He is a driver I have a lot of respect for" said Gale.

"The guys on the team seemed to be pleased with my performance.JBeing the fastest in the final practice and qualifying 10th isn't so bad after all", said Gale.

Gale's next race will be determined at a later date.
