Blake Feese; Sadler Racing Looking For Hometown Advantage In Nashville

LEBANON, Tennessee (Wednesday, August 8, 2007) -- Blake Feese is back. After notching another top-10 performance in his second outing of the season last month at Kentucky Speedway, the two-time ARCA RE/MAX Series winner returns to the site of his first career victory looking to give himself a boost while delivering his Sadler Racing team with a Gibson guitar in their backyard.

After strong runs at Kansas and Kentucky, Feese returns to Nashville Superspeedway, looking to return to victory circle for the first time since 2004. Oddly enough since scoring that victory, Feese hasn't returned to the 1.333-mile facility, but no doubt he's excited about the return.

"I'm really thrilled to be going back to Nashville this weekend," said Feese, who looks to make his eighth career ARCA start Saturday. "I haven't been to the track since the win, so I'm definitely looking forward to going back. On the strength of two great runs with the Sadler Racing team, we are looking forward to having another strong run on Saturday afternoon."

In their last venue at Kentucky Speedway, Feese and the team finished sixth after starting 39th. The team qualified 23rd but had to relinquish that position after changing motors following qualifying. With only 60 laps of green flag racing, the showing by Feese and Co. proved they can conquer almost any problem that tries to stand in their way.

Continuing their association with the Scottish Rite and the Fuel Performance Catalyst (FPC), Feese and Sadler Racing are looking forward to giving them their third straight top-10 run.

"It's an honor for me to continue to promote the Scottish Rite and FPC. We had a great run in our last outing at Kentucky and it offered a lot of television coverage. We are looking to do the same on Saturday."

Sadler Racing participated in the open test at the Lebanon, Tennessee track last month. Feese, the Saybrook, Illinois native produced the 10th fastest lap with a time of 31.190 seconds at 153.511 MPH.

The team opted to bow out of qualifying runs and focus on race runs. Sadler Racing wore out two sets of Hoosier tires trying to find the perfect setup with the hopes to award the organization with a Gibson guitar trophy on Saturday.

"The test went really well," offered Feese, a former competitor in the World of Outlaws. "We spent the whole day focusing on race runs. We're bringing the same Dodge Charger we competed with at Kansas and Kentucky, so we know it's a good piece. I would really be disappointed if we didn't deliver another good run."
