Renshaw Taking Cautious Approach at NHIS: Deborah Renshaw understands that experience is the key to success at so many of the race tracks visited by the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. But perhaps one race track that punctuates that fact is the one-mile New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon. Following a day filled with difficult lessons at Richmond last week, Renshaw hopes that the lessons she takes from New Hampshire include more track time.

"We had a really tough day at Richmond," said Renshaw. "But we have to put that behind us and focus on New Hampshire this weekend. This is another track that I've not raced on and really I've not raced on another track like it before. I know this track is unique in the flat turns and fast straights. But I will really plan to use as much time as I can in practice to get the feel of the track."

The K Automotive team has experienced success in the past at NHIS scoring two race wins in the eight starts that the team has made at the track. K Automotive won in 1999 with Dennis Setzer at the wheel and again in 2002 with driver, Terry Cook. In addition the team has started at NHIS in the top ten six times including the outside pole in 2002.

"The K Automotive team certainly has tremendous success at this race track," said Renshaw. "They have run well here and run races. So I know that the truck will have a great set-up underneath it for me to be able to gain some experience on the track. My primary focus at NHIS is learn, learn, learn."

Renshaw has made six starts in her NCTS career during the 2004 season. Her best finish to date came on July 31 at the Michigan Int'l Speedway when she finished 22nd. The Sylvania 200 will take the green flag on Saturday, September 18 at 1:00 pm ET and can be seen live on Speed Channel.
