The Truck
"Step Child" - Named because it is different than any other truck in the L&R Motorsports garage. Last raced "Step Child" at Martinsville where they blew the rear gear and lost several laps, eventually making it back out onto the track and finishing 27th.

Notes

* Norick & his spotter, Gus Primm, have raced together on this track since 1993, when Lance was racing in FF2000 series.

* Last year at IRP, Norick qualified 25th and finished 18th.

* Sunday, August 5th is Lance's father Ron Norick's 60th birthday. He will be spending the final days of his 50's in the pit, helping out on the crew of the #90 ABChoice team, as he always does.

Quotes

Lance Norick:
"The last short track we went to, [Memphis] we finished 8th. Gus [spotter] & I have run there since '93. I've run lots of laps at IRP, and am looking forward to racing there this weekend."

Crew Chief John Monsam:
"After racing this truck at Martinsville, we've torn just about everything off but the roof. Now we've got a really good short track truck. It turns well, has good bite, good forward grip and will stay consistent over a long run." <pre> 2001 Performance
