Transnet Racing Welcomes Veteran Crew Chief Danny Gill To No. 98 NASCAR Busch Series Team
ATLANTA, Georgia (Tuesday, July 17, 2007) - - Transnet Racing announced this week that it has brought aboard veteran Danny Gill as crew chief of the Dixien/OmniSource/Prime Metal Coatings Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. Effective immediately, Gill will lead the No. 98 crew, which is currently in its first season of NASCAR Busch Series competition.
Transnet Racing announced its transition into the NASCAR Busch Series in the fall of 2006, after several successful years in the Toyota Atlantic Championship and promising stints in the NASCAR Elite Division and ARCA RE/MAX Series.
In March of 2007, owner and driver Alex Garcia made his Busch Series debut in the Telcel-Motorola Mexico 200 in Mexico City, Mexico, and became the first Venezuelan driver to race in one of NASCAR's top divisions. Transnet Racing is currently running a partial schedule, with a full-time pursuit of the championship scheduled for 2008.
Danny Gill brings years of experience to Transnet Racing. For Danny, what began as a love of racing turned into a passion for competition and strategy, which eventually led to him becoming a successful crew chief at the highest levels in the NASCAR ranks.
Coming to Transnet Racing, Gill's statistics are impressive; he has visited victory lane eight times as a crew chief, and is 10th in all time NCTS career wins. "We are excited to have Danny aboard," says owner and driver Alex Garcia. "He brings years of experience to the program and a proven winning record. I look forward to working with him on the owner side, and as a driver. I anticipate a very successful campaign from this point forward."
Transnet Racing's campaign continues at the NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Circuit Gilles Villenueve in Montreal on August 4th, followed by the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International on August 11th.
