Hernandez Continues Incredible Pace in Camping World East Series
Only a Win Left For Hernandez Heading to Dover
Eight Starts, Six Top-10 and Four Top-5 Finishes Highlight 2009 Season

Huntersville, N.C. (September 23, 2009) - NASCAR Drive for Diversity graduate Jesus Hernandez is carrying momentum from a fifth-place finish this past Friday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway into this weekend's Camping World East Series finale at the Dover International Speedway.

Racing the Chivas/Telmex/Z-Line Designs Dodge, Hernandez started 34th and finished fifth earning him and his team the Coca-Cola Move of the Race Award. But, for Hernandez it also means another top finish in the Camping World East Series and high hopes heading into Dover this weekend.

"New Hampshire was a great run for us, but I'm really excited about Dover," said Hernandez. "I've led laps there and I really enjoy the track. Right now, it's all about carrying this positive momentum we have and getting a win."

Hernandez has more than momentum on his side heading into Dover. He is also the owner of very impressive stats in his Camping World East Series career. After New Hampshire, Hernandez now has 12 top-five finishes and 19 top-10 finishes in 33 starts over the past three seasons in the series.

"Yea, it's been great," added Hernandez. "This season started and I was on the sidelines, but I got a call from Troy Williams and his team. They had an opening, and I think we've made the most of it. We've finished outside the top-10 only twice this season. We have had great races, but need a win to cap off an awesome season."
