North Carolina Speedway -- November 3, 2001
Randy Tolsma on Rockingham: Randy Tolsma, driver of the No. 25 Team Marines Chevrolet, will make his first career start at the Rock this weekend and is ready to tackle the challenge.
"We had a great test session in Rockingham a few weeks ago," said Tolsma. "I really like the track from a driver's perspective. It's a tough place that will test you every single lap. It's the type of track where so many things come into play^Å tire conservation, track position, pit strategy, etc. It'll be an exciting race and should be a great weekend for Team Rensi Motorsports."
Troy Selberg on Rockingham: "'The Rock' is an old track and the surface is pretty worn out, so it's easy to use up your tires early in a long green flag run," says Team Marines crew chief, Troy Selberg. Tire conservation as well as track position is key, so I'm counting on the Team Marines crew to be on their toes and pick us up some spots in the pits. One thing's for sure - Racing here is never dull and I know this weekend will be no different."
Special Car Design: Tolsma will kick off the holiday season by driving the No. 25 Team Marines Toys For Tots Chevrolet this weekend at Rockingham. "This is going to be an exciting way build awareness for this year's Toys For Tots campaign," said Major Rob Winchester, Public Affairs Officer, Marine Corps Recruiting Command. "We hope that running the Toys For Tots car will put people in the Christmas spirit and prompt them to remember those that are less fortunate during the holiday season."
Equipment: The Team Marines are taking car No. 7 to Rockingham this weekend. This is the same car that Tolsma competed with in the Dover and Bristol spring races, as well as in Memphis a couple of weeks ago, where Tolsma scored his best NASCAR Busch Series finish at 17th.
Look for Randy at: The Rockingham Race Fest on Thursday, November 1st, from 4:30 -- 6:30pm, where he'll be greeting fans and signing autographs.
