Hillenburg to drive No. 91 at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 1, 1998) Andy Hillenburg will drive the LJ Racing No. 91 Chevrolet in Saturday night's NASCAR Winston Cup Series Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

"Andy was our first choice for this race. He has done some night testing for several teams, finsihed 3rd in the Daytona ARCA 200, and qualified 18th for the Daytona 500," team owner Joe Falk said. "We look forward to working with Andy, and having a good run this 4th of July weekend."

The seat became open when Kevin Lepage was hired away by Jack Roush last week. Falk put road course ace Tommy Kendall in the car for the Save Mart/Kragen 350 at Sears Point Raceway last Sunday.

Driving the No. 95 Shoney's Inn Chevrolet, Hillenburg competed in the Daytona 500 earlier this year, starting 18th and coming home with a 29th-place finish. He has not made a NASCAR Winston Cup event since, failing to qualify at Atlanta, Texas and Charlotte.
