Momentum building at Team Racing for Phil Bonifield.

(CONCORD, N.C.) - You might say 2003 is a record-breaking year for Team Racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. So far Team Racing drivers Phil Bonifield and T.J. Bell have scored their career-best starts and finishes. For Bonifield, last week at Memphis Motorsports Park capped off his 50th NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start with a career-best 23rd-place finish.

"This year has been better than ever," said Bonifield, driver of the No. 23 Red Line Synthetic Oil Chevrolet Silverado. "It was a great way to end the weekend with a career-best finish. We are slowly moving up the ladder. Now we head to a flat track, The Milwaukee Mile, where the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series has run since 1995."

Bonifield has three previous starts at The Milwaukee Mile finishing 31st the past two seasons in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Last year Bonifield competed in five NASCAR Busch Series events, including last year's event at The Milwaukee Mile.

"We are heading to the second of eight-straight races, where every position counts," said Bonifield, the Napa, Calif. native. "The Milwaukee Mile has new grandstands with lights for the fans to enjoy the race. It would be better for us to run at night because traditionally it is hot and humid in Milwaukee this time of the year.

"This is the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series," said Bonifield. "We will be beatin' and bangin'. The fans in the Midwest seem to really like the racing we put on each week including this weekend at The Milwaukee Mile. These trucks are competitive. Tough drivers. Tough trucks."

Team Racing competes in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with a host of drivers including Jamie Aube, T.J. Bell, Wayne Edwards and Phil Bonifield. Bonifield competes in the NASCAR Busch Series for Team Racing in the No. 90 Red Line Synthetic Oil Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
