Woodside And Team Walker Motorsports Hope Home Track Experience Brings First Winston West Win

May 8, 2001 (North Hollywood, Calif.) - Sean Woodside, driver of the #45 Team Walker/Ron's Rear Ends/NAPA Chevrolet in the NASCAR Winston West Series, and Team Walker Motorsports have spent a lot of time this season at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway.

Both Woodside and Mike Walker, who co-owns the team with his mother, Donna Walker, are running full-time Super Late Model efforts this season at the 1/2-mile oval.

Woodside recently took over the points lead in the Saturday night program, and collected his first win several weeks ago. He and the team hope that the time and effort spent on the Super Late Model program at Irwindale will give them an edge in this Saturday's Food 4 Less 250, the first of three planned visits by the NASCAR Winston West Series there this season.

"We're having a lot of fun with our Super Late Model program," Woodside said. "We're also getting in a lot of time on the track. That should help us out this Saturday."

Woodside finished third in the July 2000 Southwest Series event at Irwindale. He has also finished in the top ten twice in Winston West events, once during his 1999 championship season and once in 2000.

He and the team are looking for their first Winston West win in the 2001 season. Perhaps the concentration of efforts this year at Irwindale will play favorably this Saturday, and help take Team Walker Motorsports to Victory Circle.

The Food 4 Less 250 will be televised on Fox Sports Net, date and time to be determined.

Team Walker Motorsports is a multi-team racing operation owned by Donna Walker and her son, Michael. The team fields the #45 Team Walker/Ron's Rear Ends/NAPA Chevrolet in the NASCAR Winston West Series, featuring driver Sean Woodside, and the #23 Team Walker/Ron's Rear Ends/Quixote/Sunset Expendables/NAPA Chevrolet in Irwindale Speedway's Super Late Model program, driven by Mike Walker. North Hollywood, Calif.-based Team Walker Motorsports debuted in 1999 with a limited Late Model schedule.
