Mark Green/Timber Wolf Racing Notes

Mark Green and the Timber Wolf/Brewco Motorsports team prepared for their first NASCAR Busch Series race on Watkins Glen International's road course by testing the No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet Monte Carlo on the figure-eight track at the Kentucky Motor Speedway in Whitesville, Kentucky on June 20. "The car wasn't ready when we planned to test it earlier this month, so we did the next best thing," explained Green. "We built a mock road course on the figure eight track to shake the car down. It really helped us a lot because we were able to learn something about the car before we arrived in Watkins Glen." The Owensboro, Kentucky native is no stranger to road racing. The first nine years of Green's racing career was spent competing in go-karts in the Southern Indiana Racing Association where he won six consecutive championships. With no experience on a road course since 1981, Green has been mentally preparing for the Lysol 200 by utilizing 'training' techniques used by Winston Cup Series driver Bobby Labonte. "I've been racing at Watkins Glen with the NASCAR Racing game on my computer at home," said Green. "I've completed over 500 laps and won four races. Bobby prepares himself by racing each track on his computer and he's won both poles and races. I've 'trained' several times this season and feel it has really helped me prepare."

 Mark Green will make his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut driving the Brewco Motorsports No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet in the Sears Diehard 200 at the Milwaukee Mile on July 5. Mark will pull double duty during the weekend, driving the No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the NASCAR Busch Series Sears Auto Center 250 on July 6.

 Quick Fill Red Apple is an associate sponsor on the No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet Monte Carlo for the Lysol 200 at Watkins Glen International. Headquartered in Warren, Pennsylvania, Quick Fill Red Apple is a convenience store chain with over 360 locations in Central New York and Pennsylvania.

 David Green is making his 1997 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut driving the Brewco Motorsports No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet in the NAPA Autocare 200 at Nazareth Speedway. The driver of the No. 96 Caterpillar Chevrolet in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series has two previous truck series starts, with his career best finish, ninth, coming at the Phoenix International Raceway in 1995. Brewco Motorsports will enter eight NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events in 1997 with David Green, Mark Green and Scot Walters alternating driving duties.

 Mark Green will sign autographs on June 26 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the 'NASCAR Night In The Heights' Celebration in downtown Elmira, New York. On June 27 at 6:00 pm, Mark will participate in the Lysol Racing Bowl Charity bowling tournament at Paramount Lanes in Elmira.
