Team Marines' "Give us your best shot"

Charlotte, NC. (May 9, 2001) - During last Friday nights broadcast of the Busch race at Richmond International Speedway, Darrell Waltrip made a comment, "It doesn't matter who's driving the Team Marines car, there's a bulls-eye on it". Due only to the fact that once again, Team Marines driver, David Donohue, was involved in an on-track accident. It's hard not to think that Darrell's words hold true.

At some point, since the beginning of the season, everyone or should we say everyone, except luck has been on the side of Donohue's Chevrolet. The No. 25 Busch car has been spun, hit or pushed during the majority of races run. It may not be "Boot Camp", but hard to ignore the amount of sheet metal getting torn week to week. Team Marines has gone through their own 12-weeks of hard work at the race shop, which is just as challenging in it's own right. Tearing apart and rebuilding racecars and still their dedication hasn't diminished and define the true meaning of "Team".

The fans this weekend will see that, despite their misfortune, Team Marines can take what is dished out and give it right back. The No. 25 Team Marines Chevrolet will display a "Bulls-eye" on the rear deck lid. Surrounding the parameter of the bulls-eye will have a statement, "Change is forever, Body Damage Isn't." Fitting, considering the obstacles the team has endured, thus far.

What many have forgotten is Team Rensi Motorsports was farther back in points this time last year than they are know. Many changes have been made and are continually shaping a team to be proud of. As the season matures, so will Team Marines and will be ones to reckon with on the battlefield.
