Bell Building Momemtum For Last Seven Races In New Hampshire

* Bell at Loudon...The Heluva Good 200 will mark TJ Bell's fourth start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In three previous starts Bell has an average finish of 15th and completed all but one of the 600 laps possible. Last season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Bell earned a 10th place finish after starting from the 24th position.

* Keeping the Momentum Going... Bell and the #11 team have turned their season around this summer. In the last five events, Bell has earned three top-10 finishes. He was poised for another top-10 last weekend at Gateway when a mid-race accident took him out of the race. This team is not looking backwards; they are heading to New Hampshire with the determination to bring home another top-10 finish.

* A Love Of Sports Led Claveloux to the #11 Pit Crew...Dick Claveloux was a sports fanatic with an interest in NASCAR but didn't really know how to break into the business. Playing sports his entire life in Dover, Delaware, Claveloux moved to NC looking for a change and quickly found one. He met his wife just three weeks later and she encouraged him to attend a pit crew school she had heard of. Claveloux began attending Pit Crew U, owned by RHR Owners, Tom DeLoach and Jeff Hammond. He completed Pit Crew U and went on to the 5 Off 5 On program. Claveloux had never served on a pit crew before but had all the skills necessary to excel at it. He got his shot with Red Horse Racing as the rear tire carrier for the #11 team and hasn't looked back since. Claveloux says he wouldn't change his job for anything. He loves the team camaraderie and the constant athletic challenge.

TJ Bell on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway "I am so ready for this race. We have been running really well lately. Last week we didn't get the finish we deserved but we are capable of earning top-10's every weekend and that is all we can ask. New Hampshire is a great track and I like running there. It's really racy and you will see a lot of two-wide racing. It's fun for the fans to watch and really fun for us in the driver's seat."

Crew Chief Rick Gay on New Hampshire International Speedway "Last week is behind us and we are still building momentum for the end of the year. This team has been working really hard on trucks for the remaining races. We are using all the resources that TRD has given us and making the most of them. I'm excited to see how the rest of this season unfolds. Each week TJ gains more confidence so as the season is winding down our program is getting better and better."

Equipment Information The #11 Red Horse Racing team will compete with chassis # 65 in the Heluva Good 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This is the same chassis that Bell raced at Michigan International Speedway where he started 29th and finished 18th.
