TALLADEGA, Ala. (April 22, 1998)

The No. 92 Kraft Foods, Inc. team and substitute driver, David Green, are looking to change their luck in Talladega.

They have experienced some tough times in the past few weeks with driver, Derrike Cope, crashing into the wall in Texas, revisiting injuries sustained in early March at Atlanta. Engine problems and accident have plagued the No. 92 team throughout the first quarter of the season.

However, co-owner, Mac Martin, is optimistic about the upcoming Touchstone Energy 300.

"We went to test in Talladega and everything went real well. The Kraft Foods team was able to adapt easily to rule changes when other teams had a little trouble," Martin said.

Green realizes the importance of a strong car on the 2.66-mile superspeedway.

"I like Talladega. The way the car is set-up is probably more important here than at any other track," Green said.

The last time Green competed in a NASCAR Busch Grand National race at Talladega was on July 27, 1996. At that race, he started in 19th position and managed to secure a 10th-place finish. Source: NASCAR Online
