** WEAVER BROTHERS RACING/BRIAN WEAVER FAST FACTS **

Brian Weaver returns to action this weekend with another action-packed two event weekend for the 1A Modified Team. Competition begins with Friday night action at Afton (NY) Raceway, where the track's points leader will look to make it two wins in a row at the 3/8-mile track. Saturday's schedule will find Weaver heading to Thunder Mountain Speedway in Lisle NY looking to improve on last week's tenth place finish. Looking ahead to the weekend, the Conklin (NY) resident is ready for action and says, "It was a disappointment to be rained out last weekend at Afton. This week though, it's CD-100 night, and we want to do well in front of our sponsor's on their night. We're looking to return to our winning ways at Thunder Mountain on Saturday. Basically, we want to pick up two wins this weekend, and extend our points lead at both tracks, and to make progress in the Winston Racing Series points standings with our Afton efforts."

Last Weekend: After the threat of storms canceled racing at Afton Raceway last Friday night, the team found more favorable weather conditions at Thunder Mountain Speedway on Saturday. At Thunder Mountain, Weaver began the feature from the 13th position of the field. A flat tire in the early going put Weaver to the rear of the field. The two time Thunder Mountain track champion was able to work his way back through the pack and was credited with a tenth place finish in the event won by Gary Smith. Following the race Weaver said, "The track was wet and heavy, and we didn't hit the right combination for the conditions. We'll be back next week and hopefully have a better night."

The Winston Racing Series: Brian Weaver currently sits in fourth place in the Winston Racing Series New England Region. The standings are as follows:
