CHUCK BARNES JR. TO MAKE SECOND START AT CONCORD MOTORSPORTS PARK
(April 26, 2005) -- Chuck Barnes Jr. will make his second start at Concord Motorsports Park in Concord, North Carolina in this weekends Future Cellular Big 10 125 lap event. The Louisville, Kentucky native finished second in the first Future Cellular Big 10 show on March 26th to Dennis Schoenfeld, in his first ever event at the challenging tri-oval.
"We didn't have a very good car last time," remarked Barnes, "I just basically road around and stayed out of trouble. We didn't have any thing for Schoenfeld, he was the dominant car that day. We decided to go back and see if we could do a little better with what we learned last time."
Barnes still has aspirations of racing at a higher level, and hopes to the gain attention of car owners at the next level by running in high profile events such as the Future Cellular Big 10 events at Concord. Barnes finished second in this past Sunday's late model event at Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana. The event was run in conjunction with an ARCA RE/Max Series event. Barnes helped out on NASCAR racer Ken Schrader's pit crew during the ARCA RE/Max Series event.
Barnes is also the Crew Chief this season for part-time CRA Super Series competitor Greg Boone, who will be competing in selected series events during the season. He competed in the CRA Super Series season opener at Anderson Speedway on April 16th, but had his day end early after contact with another car damaged his radiator and caused the car to overheat.
Barnes will have his work cut out at Concord Motorsports Park, not only against Schoenfeld but also perennial favorite Freddy Query, who's day ended early at the last event after a spin and contact with the wall. Eddie Massengill Jr. will try to better his 3rd place finish on March 26th along with Big Ten regulars Ted Musgrave Jr., Jimmy Simpson and Chris Dunn.
