* The North Carolina area is a big market for Zaxby's with 49 stores in this state alone and two within 3 miles of Lowe's Motor Speedway. Therefore, RAB Racing would like to welcome 5 franchisees this weekend as guest's of the team. Without them we could do not be doing what we love, racing.

* RAB Racing is coming home. As most teams are, RAB Racing will be having a "Homecoming" this weekend. After 19 races over a five month period, the Zaxby's race team will enjoy a home game this weekend at LMS. RAB Racing's 40,000 sq. foot facility is just 6 miles from the speedway.
