LAKE ORION, Michigan (September 14, 2000) -- Coming off an impressive third place qualifying effort and a twelfth place finish in the Kroger 200 last Thursday night at Richmond, Truck Series owner Bob Keselowski will again enter a second truck for driver Hermie Sadler in the inaugural Craftsman Truck Series event at Dover Downs International Speedway on September 22. Keselowski, who announced recently that he was losing primary sponsorship from Mopar Performance as well as driver Dennis Setzer, and Sadler are working to finalize their plans for the 2001 season. Both feel like this could be a potent combination.
"We have obviously put a great deal of time and effort into making this a championship caliber team, and we plan to continue to be a force in the Nascar Craftsman Truck Series for years to come," " stated Bob Keselowski, co owner of K Automotive with brother Ron. Our hope is that through our performance with Hermie in these couple races that we can attract primary sponsorship for next season and beyond."
Sadler, the 1993 Busch Series Rookie of the Year, currently competes in the Busch Series for Innovative Motorsports, but is not sure of his plans for next season. He believes the teams Richmond debut was good, but expects better at Dover.
According to Sadler, "To show up at the for the first time together without testing and qualify third was a big accomplishment. Our next step is to race better, which I think we will at Dover. Bob and I both know this business is based on communication and performance. We hope to perform well enough to attract some attention from potential sponsors. We feel like we have a lot to offer."
