Scot Walters/Red Man Racing Notes

Scot Walters, driver of the Red Man/Brewco Motorsports Chevrolet truck credits his new fitness program as the pivotal factor in preventing him from being injured in the accident two weeks ago at Texas Motor Speedway.

"I'm sure that me being in better physical condition had a lot to do with my injuries being confined to a sore neck and stiffness," said Walters. "The best thing I've done in my career was start this workout program."

Walters began his workout program at the beginning of the 1998 season to be in better shape and to improve his stamina in the race truck. It is a know fact that the temperature inside a truck can exceed 150 degrees, and that takes a toll on the body. To better combat this problem, Walters like so many others have begun to work their cardiovascular system along with other key areas. The hope is to be as fresh when you finish the race as when you started.

Walters' workout begins each week by walking on a treadmill or riding a bike to build up his endurance. After that he will workout with free weights every other day. This builds the body and in some cases the mind.

"The workout plays a big role in my preparation for a race," said Walters. "Obviously, it helps me feel better, but probably more important is the mind set it puts me in. I feel strong so I think I can overcome any obstacle that may be thrown in my way." ****

Scot Walters and the Red Man/Brewco Motorsports team is 10th in miles completed, having finished 1071.674 miles of a possible 1352.050 miles run or 79.3%.
