Back to back top ten finishes for NRE.

Asheville, NC (April 19, 2002), A large attendance of Blue Cross Blue Shield employees at Ace Speedway saw Mart Nesbitt and Nesbitt Racing Enterprises take the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina #30 to it's second top ten in a row in the USAR Hooter's Pro Cup Southern division.

After a mid day shower, there was a lot of apprehension on how it was going to affect the car. "The car is either going to come in or go away," said Mart Nesbitt. After the first two rounds of pit stops Mart was in 2nd, but with the setup just a little off what it needed to be, Mart settled into the 9th spot for the finish.

The story of the day, was the monkey that had been on the back of NRE, truly gone? Although there were some miscues in the pits which Mart said "didn't hurt us because we pitted out of sequence with everyone else" the monkey seems to be gone. Good teamwork between spotter Scott Clodfelter and driver kept the #30 Blue Cross Blue Shield Chevy out of trouble and in contention for a good finish.

Race to be aired on Speed Channel April 25th at 9pm est., for more information go to www.usarprocup.com
