Statesville, NC., January 10, 2005 -- The Peak Performance Motorsports Team has moved into its new race shop at 2668 Peachtree Road, Statesville, NC 28625. The #66 Peak Fitness Ford Taurus powered by Roush-Yates engines is now housed in the 35,000 sq ft race shop facility located at Travis Carter Enterprises.
Crew Chief James Ince says the move to the new facility will expedite preparations for the 2005 season. "I feel like we're in pretty good shape all things considering," Ince said. "For a two- and-a-half week old race team, you hear that and most people are horrified by that.
"But the reality of it is we went from having no racecars and no people to having 10 people working in the shop and five racecars in stages of being completed.
"We're definitely growing. All of these things, coupled with the Roush-Yates engine package and the things Ford Motor Company is providing us, we're able to skip over a lot of hurdles that would have taken me at least six months to go out and gather up."
"All of the parts and pieces are laying there. Some of it isn't necessarily a perfect world, but at the same time, it's a whole lot more than I had a week ago (and) that gets me going."
"My focus is to assemble the people and worry about race cars right now. Our focus is on the team and on the cars and being as good as we can be right off the get-go."
