TC Motorsports; Odell Looking To Make Their Own Record In Nashville
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 7, 2006) - - Even though TC Motorsports does not compete in a majority of the NASCAR Busch Series races, when they do decide to tangle they make their presence known. Motoring their way into Nashville Superspeedway this weekend, the team with driving sensation David Odell looks to continue their respectable performances in Saturday night's Federated Auto Parts 300.
The Georgia-based team will look to make their second NBS (NASCAR Busch Series) start of the season this weekend. In April, the team made their 2006 debut at Nashville. After qualifying a disappointing 41st, Odell used patience and prior experience at the 1.333-mile facility to garnish a 25th place finish.
This weekend, the team is looking for a solid top-15 finish. "The spring race was a good race for us," said Odell, who also competes in the ARCA RE/MAX Series. "The main goal was to qualify for the race and we did. During the race, we just wanted to gain some respect and I think we did that. This weekend, we want to continue to make a positive influence and prove that we are contenders."
TC Motorsports heads into the 15th event on the 2006 schedule without the security of a primary sponsorship. As race weekend quickly approaches, the team is still looking for additional funding.
"We're a small team, so we don't have the resources as some of the bigger operations but if we can find a sponsor for this weekend's race, I know we can get the job done."
The NASCAR Busch Series isn't the only racing sanction the team has competed in this season. Last month, the team made their 2006 ARCA RE/MAX Series debut at Kentucky Speedway with flawless results. After starting the Harley-Davidson of Cincinnati 150 from the 20th position, , Odell charged through the pack during the course of the short 103 lap event and amassed as a serious contender for the win before being forced to settle for eighth.
"Kentucky was a awesome race for the TC Motorsports team," explained Odell, a well-known late model driver for the Lawrenceville, Georgia area. "Our team has proven time and time again that we have what it takes to run upfront in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, now we it's our turn to prove that in the NASCAR Busch Series."
Following Nashville, TC Motorsports will head further north returning to Kentucky Speedway looking to excel past their finish in the ARCA race and give everyone in the Bluegrass state something to talk about. Further races in the NASCAR Busch Series and ARCA RE/MAX Series will be announced at a later date.
Odell has two prior starts in the NBS with TC Motorsports in at Nashville (2006) and Memphis Motorsports Park (2005).
The Federated Auto Parts 300 (225 laps/300 miles) is the 15th of 35 events on the 2006 NASCAR Busch Series schedule. This weekend's race consists of a one-day show. Practice begins Saturday, June 10th at 8:30am with a rookie practice to follow at 9:45am with qualifying set for 4:00pm live on SPEED. FX will air the event live beginning at 6:30PM CST, with MRN handling the airwaves also starting at 6:30 PM CST. The race will also be available via XM radio channel 144 launching at 6:30pm. CST
