CARL EDWARDS/ R.E. TECHNOLOGIES HOPE TO MOVE UP AT NEW HAMPSHIRE
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Carl Edwards/ R.E. Technologies Racing is looking to move back up in the points this weekend after two disappointing finishes at the last two dirt races. The team will travel to New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire for the "New Hampshire 75" Saturday afternoon. This weekend will mark the first time the USAC K&N Silver Crown Series has raced at the "Magic Mile." While the Carl Edwards R.E. Technologies Racing team is new to the facility, the driver of the No. 199 Ford powered/ Red Line Oil/ Hoosier Tires C&R Silver Crown car is not. Cameron Dodson raced at the one-mile oval in 2006 in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
"I am happy to be returning to New Hampshire International Speedway," smiled Dodson. "I know the Carl Edwards/ R.E. Technologies Racing team will have the car setup and ready to run up front."
Cameron Dodson sits in 5th in the driver's points race and the Carl Edwards/ R.E. Technologies owned No. 199 sits in 2nd in the owner's points heading into New Hampshire. If Dodson gets his way, he and the team will climb in higher over the next few races.
"We only have three more pavement and one dirt race left in the 2007 season. Our goal is to win or score top three finishes in all three remaining pavement races on the schedule and a top ten on the final dirt race of 2007. If we can do that, we will hopefully move up in the points."
Cameron Dodson and the team are looking forward to racing with NASCAR this weekend. The USAC teams will share the race weekend with the Whelen Modified Tour, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series Saaturday. The USAC Silver Crown Series is scheduled to take to the track for practice and group qualifying Saturday morning bright and early at 8am. The 50-minute session is the only time the cars are scheduled to take to the track prior to the 75-lap race, which is scheduled for 5:45pm.
