Rocky Mount, VA - Ron Fariss is looking forward to taking his #22 Marines Pinkerton Chevrolet Monte Carlo on the road course at Atlanta Motor Speedway on August 3 and 4. Ron, a two-time SCCS winner, had a great race going at the July 19th SCCS race at the Lowe's Motor Speedway, but was sidelined by a mechanical problem.

"We have found a great series with SCCS," said Fariss. "We were able to take a used Late Model Stock Car, liked those that run at various oval tracks and with a few changes have a car that is proving to be a well balanced race car. The crate engine rule is impressive; we are seeing a lot of power and still be able to keep our engine program cost in line."

Fariss has competed in various series during his twenty years of racing, including NASCAR, TransAm, GrandAm, and IMSA.

"We are excited with the level of competition within SCCS," Fariss said. "Drivers in the series are coming with backgrounds in road racing and oval tracks."

The Stock Car Championship Series cars will take to the track for its first visit to the Atlanta Motor Speedway with practice and qualifying on Saturday and the feature race on Sunday. First practice will be at 10:30 AM on Saturday and the race at 1:00 PM on Sunday. For more information visit the SCCS web site at
