BRAD GRAHAM & FULL THROTTLE TEAM SET TO RELEASE THE BLUE DEMON
[IMAGE]May 12, 2008. After what was a disappointing 2007 season in terms of on track performance, Brad Graham and the Full Throttle / Logel's Auto Parts/ Challenger Motor Freight team are working harder than ever to be ready for 2008. The team got their first taste of on track action this past weekend at Cayuga Speedway and liked what they found.
It's been a busy off season for the #19 Full Throttle / Logel's Auto Parts/ Challenger Motor Freight team as they have completely rebuilt their car for the 2008 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series season. "We spent a lot of time working on the car leading up to the test at Cayuga" said Graham. "It's no secret we struggled for part of last year but as we dug deeper into the characteristics of this car we learned a lot and it helped us out so much. Right from the start of the test day at Cayuga this car was very good. We're extremely happy with how things went on the track".
With only days until the 2008 season kicks off at Cayuga Speedway on May 24th optimism and excitement is the attitude around the shop. "Last season is gone and forgotten" said Brad Graham. "Can't event see it in the mirror we're so far past it and focused on what's happening this season. Our team has another year of experience, Mike Knott my crew chief, Bill Dobson the chief mechanic and the rest of the guys are really pumped up to get going and get the Blue Demon car out".
Last season the Full Throttle / Logel's Auto Parts/ Challenger Motor Freight Dodge featured the original Full Throttle paint scheme at the oval races and Full Throttle Fury red paint for the road courses. For 2008 Brad and the team are set to release the Blue Demon look. "The Blue Demon car is going to look good when it's completed, we only had some of the logo's on for the Cayuga test but the car will look great, we'll have the Full Throttle Fury read for road courses again, and we'll probably also see the Full Throttle original at a few races too".
Also returning to the fold this season are long time supporters Logel's Auto Parts and Challenger Motor Freight. "John has been great to our team for several years" said Graham. "It's not just the sponsorship but John has also worked as spotter, his involvement has really helped us. And of course Challenger Motor Freight has supported our team for many years and we're thrilled to have them back with us again".
The 2008 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series racing season opens Saturday May 24th at Cayuga Speedway near Hamilton, Ontario and will consist on thirteen events from coast to coast in Canada on challenging oval tracks, temporary street circuits and road courses.
