MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Jeff Swindell, Justin Carver, Derek Hagar and the Carl Edwards/ RE Technologies Racing team are headed back to the historic Terre Haute Action Track for the "Sumar Classic" Saturday night. For veteran driver, Jeff Swindell it's a return to a historic racing facility.

"Terre Haute is one of the few remaining racetracks where the Foyt's, Andretti's and Rutherford's raced at, that makes this a very nostalgic place to go back and run," said Swindell, driver of the No. 199 Roush / Yates Ford Racing/ Red Line Oil entry. "I have had the opportunity to win at the Indy mile, the DuQuoin mile and at the Springfield mile, so it would be nice to add Terre Haute to my winners list in the Silver Crown Series."

Derek Hagar and Justin Carver will make their first Silver Crown starts at the historic ½ mile dirt oval Saturday night.

"I'm pretty excited to get to run at Terre Haute for the first time," said Derek Hagar, driver of the No. 91 Conrad Sand and Gravel / Dyno Tech/ J&J entry. "I think we have had a good top five car every weekend. We just haven't had the luck we needed. Hopefully it will start this weekend and we can show what we have. I think our chances are pretty good."

"This is my first time to Terre Haute," said Justin Carver, pilot of the No. 991 Memphis Fence / Dyno Tech entry. "It is more my style of track. With my short track background and the good cars, I believe we will have a good finish."
