2002 PA Legacy Series Champion Joey Dennewitz drove his Owens Corning Allison Legacy car to a strong third place run at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, NC on June 28th, bringing him to his first podium finish in the 2003 Allison Legacy National Touring Series.

Dennewitz, who had been stuck on finishing fifth for five of the first six races this season was excited to bring home a top three for his Akron, OH based Eagle Motorsports team. "We had an awesome car tonight. Our finishes in this tough southern series haven't been giving us enough credit for how hard we are working. This isn't my favorite track, but we definitely adapted and overcame this weekend to give Owens Corning and Eagle Motorsports an awesome run. We will see what we can do in South Boston on Wednesday."

With the third place finish on Saturday, Dennewitz extends his points lead over Dennis Archinal by a solid 50 points for third place in the chase for the Allison Legacy Series National Touring Series points standings. Only 75 points behind points leader Derek Lee and only half way though the Allison Legacy National Touring Series schedule, Dennewitz is optimistic on his chances to keep moving up through the points ladder. "We keep posting those top fives and our team has always ran with a big picture philosophy. We have been good in the consistency department, and that is what wins championships. Anything can happen with 8 races to go"
