No. 07 tiwi HOPES TO PREVENT 'ONE WRONG MOVE' BY MCCUMBEE, TEEN DRIVERS

TALLADEGA, Ala. (October 28, 2009) -- As those familiar with the high-speed, close-quarters racing of Talladega Superspeedway know, focus and concentration are key ingredients in a successful race at the 2.66-mile track.

Chad McCumbee will enter the "Mountain Dew 250 fueled by Fred's" NCWTS race with full intentions of improving upon his career best 10th-place finish here but knows that one wrong move could end in disaster for the No. 07 tiwi Chevrolet.

"Maintaining your composure and focus for 250 miles is probably one of the toughest parts about racing here at Talladega," said McCumbee. "But my spotter does a good job of keeping me aware of what's going on around me and directing me through traffic in the fastest -- and definitely safest -- way possible."

In three starts at the Alabama track McCumbee has shown improvement with each race, posting a top-10 finish in his most recent attempt in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race here last October. McCumbee already has posted one top-five and five top-ten's in 17 races this season.

"I know how much safer I feel with my spotter looking out for me when I'm on the track," McCumbee said. "I know parents must feel that same peace of mind when they know that the tiwi product is watching over their child out on the real road."

Chrissy Wallace will be in the SS Green Light Racing No.08 in partnership with Rick Ware Racing. Chrissy and her father Mike will be making NASCAR history Chrissy and Mike will become the first Father and Daughter to compete in one of the top 3 NASCAR series against each other in the "Mountain Dew 250 fueled by Fred's."
