RB1 Motorsports; Ron Young looking for redemption in Nashville

Conyers, GA (Tuesday June 3rd, 2003) - - RB1 Motorsports returns to NASCAR Busch Series action from Nashville Superspeedway this weekend after missing the last two races to regroup and prepare for one of the most exciting race under the lights this year.

In the team's last outing at Nazareth Speedway, it was a bumpy road for the team. After qualifying his 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo an impressive 25th, things were looking up for the team heading into the event on Sunday. In the beginning of the race, Ron knew that he had to be patient and work his way towards the front and if he did so, he would be around in the end, when in counted.

While the Pine Tree Construction Chevrolet was having a solid day on the track, a tangle with NASCAR Busch Series "young gun" Shane Hmiel just after halfway would end Young's day as he pounded the wall on lap 108 destroying the team's car.

"It's very disappointing," said Ron. "We were hoping to have a good run, and were marching our way up and we got turned around," he said. The former competitor in the NASCAR All-Pro series noted "I am not sure what happened exactly, all I knew that we had we loaded up the trailer with a wrecked race car."

The team heads to the "Music City" this weekend hoping to improve on the team's performance from the spring. "We had a decent run in the spring, we were terrible in practice and qualifying, but to cross the line 20th after starting 42nd, we'll take it." The team is more excited about heading on to the track on Friday as the team will roll out their 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo for the second time this season.

"We are excited about taking the new car to the track this weekend," Ron added. "We had great results with the car a couple of races back, but we feel that we should double that performance Saturday."

An unfortunate thing for RB1 Motorsports is they head to the Lebanon based facility without a primary sponsor. "I wish we had a sponsor for this weekend, but it seems like that every one is struggling, and we're in that same mode too."

Ron, who also is a winner in the All-Pro series stated "If we can get a sponsor, I think we would be able to turn some heads, and while we are working on some things and were confident, it's still one step at a time at this point."

The 15th race of the 2003 NASCAR Busch Series season returns to Nashville Superspeedway this weekend for the running of the Trace Adkins 300. The series will take the green flag this Saturday June 7th "under the lights" starting at 8:00pm EST. FX and MRN will have live coverage of the race beginning at 7:30pm EST.
