Bristol, TN -- (August 25, 1999) -- The Butch Mock Motorsports team has the No. 75 Polaris ATVs / Remington Arms Ford ready for Ted Musgrave to blaze a fast trail around Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend.

"The guys and I have been looking forward to racing at Bristol," said Musgrave. "We had a strong run here in the spring and we know we can do it again. Lately, it just seems like if it can go wrong or break, it will. I guess I walked under a ladder or broke a mirror or something to cause all of this bad luck. If bad luck doesn't sit in my passenger seat as he has during the past few weeks, we will be there at the end. Last race here, my Polaris ATVs Ford could maneuver anywhere and everywhere I wanted on the track. This race, I would like it to blaze a trail to victory lane."

It is hard to believe that Bristol is not Musgrave's favorite track after having his best finish to date this season at Bristol Motor Speedway earlier this year.

The Food City 500 weekend was full of good runs for the No. 75 Polaris ATVs / Remington Arms Ford. Musgrave's solid qualifying run targeted him the 13th starting position. Once the green flag dropped, the Butch Mock Motorsports Ford, shot to the front. The car ran awesome on long green flag runs, raced as high as second, but due to a late caution, ended the race 7th.

"I love short track racing, but for some reason I dread coming to this place," expressed Musgrave. "I think it is just because so many bad things can happen in a blink of an eye. Before you know it, you are in the middle of a big pile up. But I am going trail riding this weekend with my eye's wide open."
