Bobby Dotter starts 25th in American Racing Wheels 200 at Fontana.

Fontana, CA Bobby Dotter will start the American Racing Wheels 200 from the 25th position after turning a lap of 42.998 seconds/167.450 miles per hour in the People Against Drugs/Puma Tools Chevrolet.  David Starr won the pole for the event, his second consecutive NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series pole position.

"The truck feels good, but we need to squeeze a little speed out of it," Dotter said.  "We have tried a little bit different approach to things here this weekend and it seems to be paying off.  We have learned some on what we need to be doing with the setups when it comes to making some adjustments.  That should help a lot when it comes time to race.

"We really need to just have a good solid run and make it to the finish," he continued.  "We are still working hard on catching the next position in the points, and we know this is not our kind of racetrack.  If we can come out of here with a good finish and keep up in the points, we will be happy with the weekend."

The American Racing Wheels 200 will take the green flag at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT and can be heard live on NASCAR Radio on XM Satellite Radio and MRN Radio affiliates nationwide.  The race will be broadcast on a tape-delayed basis on ESPN at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT on Sunday, November 3.
