Scot Walters/ Red Man Racing Notes

* Third Time is The Charm: Scot Walters and the Red Man/Brewco Motorsports team hope that their third trip to a road course track yields a top 10 result. Until the 1998 racing season began, Walters had never raced on a road course. In his first try at Watkins Glen, he completed every lap and recorded a 22nd place finish. In his second road race, at Topeka, Kansas, Walters showed improvement by recording a 13th place finish in the Mid-West heat. If this trend continues the next step would be a top 10 at Sears Point Raceway, but it sounds a lot easier than it will be.

"Everyone I've talked to says that Sears Point is the hardest of the three road course tracks we run on," said Walters. "I just want to finish every lap and gain experience and if we have a good day, get a top 10 or top15 finish out of it."

* Change Is a Good Thing: Veteran crew chief, Mike Steurer takes over the reigns of the No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet team for the remainder of the 1998 season. Steurer, a Sylmar, California resident brings a wealth of West Coast knowledge to Brewco Motorsport's truck program following the departure of Kenneth Campbell.

"I'm very happy about being here," said Steurer. "This is a good opportunity to join a good team and help them finish the season on a high note."

* If the Rains Come: Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company officials let the crew chiefs and drivers on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series know that if it should rain during the Kragen/Exide 150 race weekend, new rain tires would be used. The tires have been tested but never run in an official NASCAR point-paying event.

* Associate Sponsor: Circle K convenience store is the associate sponsor on the No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet for the Kragen/Exide 150 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Sears Point Raceway in Sonoma, California. The chain operates 96 stores in the Northwest area.
