CJM Racing is Looking to Rebound at Talladega

Scott Lagasse Jr. Quick Facts:

* The America's Incredible Pizza Company race team raced at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend where Lagasse Jr. was involved in a late race accident which resorted in a 32nd place finish

* The DNF (did not finish) resulted in a hard hit in the driver point standings. Lagasse Jr. now sits 13th in points and is hoping to gain some ground this weekend at Talladega

* Lagasse Jr. will make his second appearance at Talladega Superspeedway this weekend. In 2006, Lagasse Jr. raced a truck for Bobby Hamilton Racing in which he started 20th and finished 34th due to an engine problem

CJM Racing Quick Facts:

* This week's Incredible Hero is an individual that has proven anything is possible. Zach Campbell's determination and faith have helped him overcome a life changing experience that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Despite a bleak prognosis from the doctors, Zach did walk again with the aid of leg braces. Currently, Zach's dream to race has become a reality also. He entered into a Pro Truck race at New Smyrna Speedway not too long ago. Zach uses hand brake and throttle controls to maneuver the truck.

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Last Weekend at Phoenix:

"What a heartbreaker. We had a great car and for us to get knocked out with only 20 laps left is hard to swallow. This was the first car we built in-house and it was great to see just what we are capable of. I can only hope that we will rebound pretty quickly from this deal. It's a point's battle now so every race counts and we want to get back up into the top-10."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Talladega:

"I don't have a lot of laps logged at Talladega Superspeedway so the practice sessions will be crucial for me. We've put together a great combination with Roman Pemberton spotting for us now and Paul making great adjustments on the car. I will definitely rely heavily on Roman this weekend. Talladega is a fast paced track where anything can happen in the blink of an eye. Everyone just hopes to avoid the "big one" and get out of there in one piece."
