Mark Green and the Timber Wolf/Brewco Motorsports team return to the Myrtle Beach Speedway, the sight of their career best start (2nd) and first top 10 finish, anxious to prove just how strong they have been running lately. In the last three races, Green has finished no better than 15th, but only after late race adversity set him back. "We dropped a cylinder near the end in South Boston, ran out of gas with one lap to go in Watkins Glen and had a miscue in the pit and got a stop-and-go penalty in Milwaukee, all while running in the top 10," explained the Owensboro, Kentucky native. "It's got to get better soon. As a team, we know that if we keep doing everything right, the results will come." Following the Advance Auto Parts 250, Mark Green and the Timber Wolf/Brewco Motorsports team will head to Madison, Illinois to test at the Gateway International Raceway. The July 14 test is in preparation for the Gateway 300 NASCAR Busch Series race on July 26.

With a lap of 119.091 mph in qualifying for last week's race at the Milwaukee Mile, Mark Green set two track records. He bettered the track qualifying record, set by Tim Fedewa in first-round qualifying, and recorded the fastest lap by a stock car, previously held by Rusty Wallace driving an ASA car in 1984. Had Green not experienced engine trouble and turned his fast lap in first round qualifying, he would have started from the pole position. Instead he lined up in the 26th position.
