Rookie driver ready to take on the challenge of Phoenix International Raceway

Nashville, TN - Willie Allen will make his second NASCAR Busch Series start this Saturday at the Arizona Travel 200 at Phoenix International Raceway. Allen's first NASCAR Busch Series attempt came just two weeks ago with FitzBradshaw Racing at Memphis Motorsports Park. Qualifying an amazing 4th, Allen made a strong impression with the FitzBradshaw team and will once again pilot the #14 Family Dollar Dodge this weekend in Phoenix.

"We are looking forward to having Willie in the Family Dollar Dodge in Phoenix," said Team Owner Armando Fitz. "With his qualifying effort in Memphis and the manner in which he raced, he showed that he can compete successfully at the NASCAR Busch Series level."

Allen had the opportunity to become familiar with the Phoenix International Raceway in 2005 driving in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. "Driving in Phoenix is a blast," said Allen. "It is a challenging track and I'm looking forward to taking that challenge with the FitzBradshaw team. I'm very thankful to Armando and the entire crew for giving me another opportunity with them. I think we will have a great weekend."

This has been a very successful year for Allen in short track racing. He was crowned the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Points Champion at the Music City Motorplex in Nashville and finished 8th nationally in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division IV standings. Allen hopes to stay hot in Phoenix and add to his career total of 69 wins, 118 top 5's and 156 top 10's.
