Barnes Jr. Ready For 4th Annual Buckeye Bash At Columbus Motor Speedway

Louisville, KY (June 1, 2006) -- After a week off, Chuck Barnes Jr. is ready to climb behind the wheel and hopefully continue his recent winning streak he started two weeks ago with his new sponsor Crown Spray Power Multi-Purpose Cleaner. Barnes started the streak at Salem Speedway on Saturday, May 20th getting his second win of the season in the KY Clutch & Performance Late Models, he was also the fast qualifier for the third time in three events. Barnes Jr. finished 2nd in the season opener at Salem Speedway. With the win Barnes Jr. now holds a 31-point lead in KY Clutch & Performance Late Model points at Salem Speedway.

Barnes Jr. got his second win of that weekend at Baer Field Speedway with the CRA Super Series making a late pass of Eddie Van Meter and Scott Hantz after they had made contact. Barnes now looks to get his second CRA Super Series win of the season in this Saturday's Sizzle Marine 125 in the 4th Annual Buckeye Bash at Columbus Motor Speedway. Barnes Jr. last raced at Columbus Motor Speedway in 2004 with the CRA Super Series, his championship-winning season. At that event Barnes was the Fast Qualifier and finished in 10th after his cars handling went away.

"I'm looking forward to going back to Columbus Motor Speedway," remarked Barnes Jr. "We had a good fast set-up for qualifying there, now I need keep the car fast for the race. I've been able to get this car working good on flat tracks, I learned a lot at the race at Hickory Motor Speedway, things that hopefully will help me in this Saturday's race."
