CHUCK BARNES JR. READY FOR RETURN VISIT TO NASHVILLE
(March 15, 2006) -- 2004 CRA Super Series Champion Chuck Barnes Jr. is ready to return to Nashville for the CRA Super Series All American 150 at the Music City Motorplex this Saturday night. Barnes will be looking to get his second Guitar Trophy for winning a race at the historic Fairgrounds racetrack, he received his first when he won the prestigious All American 300 in November of 2004.
"I'll never forget the feeling of winning that race," explained Barnes Jr. "What a way to end a great season, we won the series championship, then come to the All American 300, set fast time, then got the win holding off Jason Hogan and Eddie Hoffman. It was great getting that Guitar Trophy, it's the neatest trophy I think you could ever win!"
"But that all happened in 2004, 2005 was not a great season for me. We didn't run nearly as well at last years All American 300. I could just never get the car to handle like we did in 2004. We came down and tested a couple of weeks ago. Things went real well, I think we will be in a position to do a lot better this time."
Barnes will be back in his own equipment for this event. He competed in a Curtis Venable car at Speedfest 2006 in Lakeland. He competed in Greg Boone's car in the Pete Orr Memorial 100 at New Smyrna Speedway during Speed Weeks were he was Fast Qualifier and raced from his 8th place starting position to finished second to Travis Kittleston.
"I want to thank Curtis Venable and Greg Boone for letting me race their cars in Florida. We had a great car at New Smyrna, I wish there had been a late caution, I think I could have had something for Travis, but it was great to get a good finish in that event"
