Renshaw Tests At Atlanta Motor Speedway in Preparation for Texas: As a rookie in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this season, Deborah Renshaw finds herself faced with the challenge of learning new race tracks every weekend. While Renshaw has not yet raced or even taken a lap at the Texas Motor Speedway, she and her K Automotive team spent Monday and Tuesday of this week testing their No. 29 Motion Dealers Ford at a track very similar, the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Ford Racing hosted a test session over the two days allowing several teams to take to the race track. Renshaw and the team saw this as a great opportunity to not only test their Texas truck, but also give Renshaw some experience on a track very much like the 1.5-mile speedway she will be competing on Saturday afternoon.

"It was a pretty good test session at Atlanta," said Renshaw. "Unfortunately we were cut short by rain on Tuesday, but I was able to get quite a few laps in over the period we had Monday and I think it will help my confidence level heading into Texas this weekend. As a rookie at these race tracks, I just don't have a lot of time to learn the tracks and that's why test sessions are so important, especially in a situation like this where we were able to test at another race track that was very similar to the one we will be racing on this weekend. Our K Automotive team also has some great notes from Texas after the win and strong runs they have had over the years and I'm sure that will help us out as well this weekend."

The Silverado 350K will take the green flag at 1:00pm CT on Saturday afternoon and will be carried Live on Speed Channel and MRN Radio.

Renshaw Unveils New Website: Deborah Renshaw has unveiled her new website, www.deborahrenshaw.com. The site was created by Team SV, based in Lexington, Kentucky (www.teamsv.com). Team SV has been working with Renshaw during her NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races. The site will carry up-to-date information, race results and photos from Renshaw's events.
