Red Cactus Salsa Racing Full-Steam Ahead Preparing For 2005 Busch Season
Quincy, Illinois - - It's been a quiet but busy off season for Red Cactus Salsa Racing as they prepare to rocket into a limited NASCAR Busch Series program this season. The team got their feet wet last season competing in two NASCAR Busch Series events collecting a solid 23RD place finish in their debut at Kansas Speedway.
With a taste of success now at their fingertips, the team is now adding first class equipment to their operation with hopes of capturing their first top ten finish on the circuit. Quincy, Illinois businessman Dan Griffin, along with driver Eric Jones proudly announced today they have agreed to compete in at least 16 NASCAR Busch Series events this season. Aiding them in their bid for success will include several new Chevrolet Monte Carlos.
"We're very pleased with the progression this team has made this off-season," said driver the driver of the No. 73 Chevrolet Eric Jones. "We have worked around the clock, taking the necessary measurements with hopes and dreams of turning this team into a winning operation."
In addition to adding a fleet of cars to their stable, Red Cactus Salsa Racing is also pleased to announce that Dave Porter Truck Sales has joined the team as a major associate sponsor for the 2005 season. Dave Porter Truck Sales is a pre-owned dealership that specializes in quality trucks and trailers for owners, operators, and small fleet companies.
"I am really honored to be representing Dave Porter Truck Sales in the NASCAR Busch Series," continued the Granger, Iowa native. "They have success in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, and I am looking forward to representing them in a positive way both on and off the track."
Jones will return to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in a one-race deal with Mittler Bros. Motorsports driving the No. 63 Dave Porter Truck Sales Ford F-150 in the NCTS season opener next month at Daytona International Speedway. He will join several of his competitors at the open test session for the series this weekend at DIS. It will also mark the first time Jones has been associated with Ford-manufactured team and attempt to qualify for a NASCAR sanctioned season-opener.
Red Cactus Salsa, the team's primary sponsor last season will continue to assume primary sponsorship roles this season. Jeff Schutte Construction has also stepped on board. However, the team is continuing to hunt for more sponsors and advertisers that would allow Jones and the team to expand on their Busch Series schedule this year.
RCSR (Red Cactus Salsa Racing) will start their season with the west coast swing, which include the second race of the NASCAR Busch Series season from California Speedway.
The team has also decided to participate in the largely anticipated NASCAR Busch Series event from Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, Mexico on March 6th, 2005. After Mexico City, the team will stay on the east coast and head to Las Vegas for the fourth race on the schedule.
"We're really excited about the way our 2005 season is shaping up," explained Jones, a former open wheel sensation. To start the season off in California and Mexico is going to be a great testament to this team to show our strength and maturity in such a short time. I am confident in our changes and I know that we are starting off the season on the right foot."
In the next few weeks, the team hopes to lock their crew chief for the 2005 season, along with the intent to name some more sponsors, which will propel them to triumph in the secondary series of NASCAR.
