Fridell Racing Enterprises Announces NASCAR Busch Series Program
"ARCA Driver To Pilot In Limited Schedule"
KING GEORGE, VIRGINA (March 20, 2007) - - Fridell Racing Enterprises announced today the plan to unveil a strong NASCAR Busch Series program competing in a limited NBS (NASCAR Busch Series) schedule this season beginning with the New England 200 from New Hampshire International Speedway (NHIS) on June 30.
Roger Carter II, a competitor in the ARCA RE/MAX Series has been selected to drive the team's entry. Carter II pilots the No. 48 FreeFeds.org Dodge Charger in the ARS (ARCA RE/MAX Series) competition under the Carter-2-Motorsports banner owned by the legendary James "Harvey" Hylton.
The group will combine engineering and technical assistance to advance both programs.
The team will hoist Dodge Chargers in competition with longtime racing supplier Arrington Motorsports supplying the horsepower. The team also hopes to utilize No. 54 in their inaugural year of racing.
"This is an exciting day for our organization," said car owner Chuck Fridell. "We've put this program together in a timely and professional manner. The NASCAR Busch Series offers a lot of exposure and signage and that's what we are looking for. We've joined with some successful organizations in the Motorsports industry and I think it will play a huge factor in the success of our operation."
Fridell continued, "We are looking forward to New Hampshire with our main goal to qualify and finish the event."
Carter II is equally excited about his new endeavor.
"I'm very honored to have been chosen to drive for Fridell Racing Enterprises," said Carter II, a native of Sunfield, Michigan. "We're enjoying our time in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, but the opportunity to compete in the secondary series of NASCAR offers a lot for any team and driver."
He continued, "I am able to expand my racing resume, learn more about the Dodge Chargers (Carter II also carries the Dodge emblem in ARCA) and compete with the best stock car drivers in the world, it's an exciting opportunity for everyone involved. Our main goal is to unload as strong as possible, make some laps, learn and gather the best finish possible. This team has the potential to be a longtime-successful team in the NASCAR Busch Series and I plan to do whatever I can to help make that possible."
"I truly believe that Roger has the knowledge and talent to get the job done," Fridell added. "He is a great spokesperson for our team while also bringing additional traits that make him a perfect fit for Fridell Racing Enterprises."
The team will announce a crew chief and sponsorship for the effort in the near future.
