FitzBradshaw Racing adds races for Atwood and Navy
The No. 82 Navy Chevrolet will compete at Kentucky and Milwaukee
CHARLOTTE, NC--FitzBradshaw Racing, owned by NASCAR veteran Armando Fitz and Pro Football Hall of Fame member and Emmy winning broadcaster Terry Bradshaw, has announced a revised schedule for the No. 82 Navy Chevrolet driven by Casey Atwood. FitzBradshaw Racing will add on the Meijer 300, slated for June 14, 2003, at the Kentucky Motor Speedway.
FitzBradshaw Racing is also adding on the GNC 250 Sunday, June 25, 2003 at the Milwaukee Mile to the No. 82 Navy Chevrolet schedule. The race has been added as a make-up race for the missed race in Charlotte. Look for Atwood to feel very comfortable at the Milwaukee Mile, the same track where Atwood won the Diehard 250 from the pole in 1999.
"It will be great fun going back to Milwaukee," said Atwood. "If there was one place I would love to race again it's the Milwaukee Mile."
Added track time is just what Casey Atwood wants. After sitting out the first twelve races of the season, Atwood says the more time behind the wheel the better.
"This is a new team and the added races give us a chance to come together as a team." Atwood adds, "The Navy has been very good to us and we want to deliver with on track performance. The more races we have the better we will be."
Team owner Armando Fitz says he is very pleased to be able to add on two races for the Navy, "We were all disappointed that the No. 82 did not qualify in Charlotte so we are excited to be able to provide the Navy with added track time."
