SCC: B+ Racing preview

Event: Grandam


The Homestead 200 is the second race of the 2011 Continental Tire Sports Car Series. Following a brilliant first event that saw Al Carter and Hugh Plumb driving the No. 45 B+ Racing Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 to a fifth place finish in the Grand-Am 200 at Daytona International Speedway, Al and Hugh are eager to start practice next Thursday at Homestead Miami Speedway.

"We can't wait to reassemble the whole B+ Racing team in Homestead for round 2 of the Continental Tire Sports Car Series," announced Al Carter. "Everything clicked during our season debut in Daytona and we want that momentum to continue. Hugh Plumb and I are determined to grab our first podium finish of the year. Watch out for the No. 45 B+ Racing Fall-Line Motorsports BMW team" added Carter.

For Al Carter, like his teammate Hugh Plumb, Homestead Miami Speedway is a likeable race track and both drivers have the ambition and determination to score a strong finish there.

"I am really excited about our next round at Homestead Miami Speedway," announced Hugh Plumb. "I have had great success there in the past and I think we have some momentum that I would like to build on after a 5th place finish at Daytona. Al Carter is really on the top of his game after a stellar run at Daytona and I am extremely happy with his performance and look forward to our performing at our best next weekend" Plumb said.

Since the announcement of the B+ Racing program last January, Al Carter and Hugh Plumb and Joe McDonough, founder of The B+ Foundation have worked actively to increase awareness of the foundation with the primary goal to raise funds to fight childhood cancer and for the foundation to invest more money into cancer research.

B+ Racing is pleased to launch its new website that will be used to keep a connection with the fans and the potential corporate donors.

Like they did before the Daytona race when they visited the Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee, Al Carter and Hugh Plumb are set to visit the Miami Children's Hospital on Wednesday at 3:00 PM before the Grand Prix of Miami. The two B+ Racing drivers will meet children with cancer and their families at the Michael Fux Family center to make a difference in their hospital stay. In addition to signing autographs and talking with the children and their parents, thanks to the Homestead Miami Speedway that donated tickets, Carter and Plumb will also be able to welcome some of the children treated at the Miami Children's Hospital oncology department to Saturday's Homestead 200 race.
