David Stremme To Pilot No. 14 For Remainder of Season
MOORESVILLE, NC -- FitzBradshaw Racing announced today that 2003 NASCAR Busch Series Rookie of the Year David Stremme will pilot the No. 14 Navy Accelerate your life Chevrolet Monte Carlo for the remaining four races of the season.
On Friday, the U.S. Navy announced its sponsorship renewal with FitzBradshaw Racing for the 2005 season. The sponsorship parameters include a new driver, Stremme, and a new manufacturer and support team. The No. 14 Navy car will switch from a Chevrolet Monte Carlo to a Dodge Charger in 2005. In addition, FitzBradshaw Racing has entered into an alliance with Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, which will provide full technical and engineering support.
"We weren't sure if we were going to be able to get Stremme in the car for the remainder of the season, but we're thrilled that we can. We can start working on our '05 program immediately," said FitzBradshaw Racing co-owner Armando Fitz.
Crew chief Jay Guy will remain at the helm of the No. 14 for the remainder of the season. Randy Cox, who is employed by Chip Ganassi Racing and served as Stremme's crew chief at Braun Racing, will function as a consultant to FitzBradshaw Racing for the remainder of the year.
FitzBradshaw Racing is owned by NASCAR veteran Armando Fitz and Pro Football Hall of Fame member and FOX broadcaster Terry Bradshaw. The team fields three cars in the NASCAR Busch Series: the No. 12 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, sponsored by Supercuts, Hot Tamales, and Bicycle Playing Cards; the No. 14 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, sponsored by the Navy; and the No. 82 Chevrolet Monte Carlo sponsored by Jani-King and Goulds Pumps.
