Powers Motorsports will try and become the first NASCAR Craftsman Truck team to make their first start next week at Gateway International Raceway.

“We were looking at some stats from the track and it stated that no other team had made their first start at Gateway,” owner driver Tom Powers said.

After failing to qualify for the seasons first race in Daytona the team has been rebuilding their trucks. “We would like to compete in as many as seven races this year if sponsorship would become available” said owner engine builder Bill Richardson.

The team is presently talking to a few companies that are interested in getting into the truck series. “If we could, we would like to compete the following few weeks at Memphis and Pikes Peak” Powers said. The team is one of the few new teams to try and compete in a Dodge truck.

“With Bill Richardson’s experience with the Dodge engines we should be in good shape.” Crew Chief Mike Hammerle said. The team runs engines built by Bill Richardson in his engine shop in Lynchburg Va.
