Mark Green and the Timber Wolf/Brewco Motorsports team are making their first career start at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in the CarQuest Auto Parts 300. The 1.5 mile oval marks the ninth different track in 1997 which both Green and the team have never competed one. In preparation for their inaugural run at CMS, Green tested on May 5 turning a fast lap of 171.865 mph (31.42 seconds). "Testing here really prepared me for this race," said Green. "By the end of the test session, I was running the same lap times as everyone else. I feel very comfortable." David Green, Mark's older brother and Winston Cup Series competitor, assisted with setups and advice during the test session.

Brewco Motorsports makes its NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut on May 24 in the Western Auto Parts America 200 at I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Missouri The team will enter eight Craftsman Truck Series events in 1997 with David Green, Mark Green and Scot Walters alternating the driving duties in the No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet. Walters, 29, will make the initial run in the Red Man Truck, his first in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. The Louisville, Kentucky native competed full-time in the NASCAR Slim Jim All Pro Series from 1993 to 1995, winning the 1993 Rookie-of-the-Year title. In 1996, Walters had his most successful season to date. Competing in only eight Slim Jim All Pro Series races, Walters scored two wins (Winchester, Indiana and Homestead, Florida) and scored one pole (Louisville, Kentucky). "I have very high expectations for our Red Man Truck team," said team owner Clarence Brewer, Jr. "All of our drivers are very experienced. Scot is a proven winner and great asset to Brewco Motorsports." David Green, will make his 1997 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut at the Nazareth Speedway on June 29 while Mark Green will make his NASCAR Craftsman debut at the Milwaukee Mile on July 5. Brewco Motorsports will use the 1997 season developing and preparing for the future. Long-term goals for the team include competing full-time in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 1998.

Mark Green will break $100,000 in earnings for the 1997 season following the CarQuest Auto Parts 300.
