Milwaukee Electric Tool comes on board for GNC Live Well 200.

West Allis, WI- Rick Crawford and the #14 Circle Bar race team head North to Milwaukee for the GNC Live Well 200 at the Milwaukee Mile on Saturday. Crawford and the #14 Ford team look to regain momentum going into the event this weekend. The team finished 9th last week in Memphis and look to bring home a top finish in front of their team sponsors home town.

Milwaukee Electric Tool, industry leader in quality electric tools, has come on board for the GNC Live Well 200 at the Milwaukee Mile. Milwaukee Electric Tool sponsored the #14 Ford for two full seasons before stepping down at the end of the 2001 season. "We are excited to sponsor Circle Bar Racing for the Milwaukee race," stated Joe Smith, Vice President of Marketing for the company. "The team and organization is top notch, they are running great and we are pleased to be associated with them," commented Smith. "Rick Crawford and the team are wonderful to work with. The team is in the hunt for the championship. Rick and the team have a great chance of winning and the whole company is excited to be associated with them," stated Special Events Manager, Noreen Brooker.

"The #14 Milwaukee Electric Tool Ford race team is really looking forward to going to Milwaukee. The team is pumped up and rearing to go. We are taking a truck that has not finished outside of the top six since we built it." Crawford went on to say that "The team is very close to it's first win of the year and that nothing would make the team happier than to win it in front of Milwaukee Electric Tools home town." The #14 Ford team's best finish at Milwaukee is third place and they plan on improving upon that this weekend.

Circle Bar Racing is the hottest team on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Dating back to the last ten races of the 2001 season, the team has finished outside of the top six only three times in the last seventeen races. The team is also in third place in the championship point race, a mere twenty points from taking the lead.

The GNC Live Well 200 will be telecast live on ESPN and broadcast live on MRN Radio at 2:00 p.m. EST.
