Benny Gordon to Come Back to Compete with USARacing at Motor Mile Speedway

Du Bois, Pa. (July 10, 2009) -- Former Pro Cup Champion, Benny Gordon, will be taking a break from NASCAR Nationwide Series competition to return to the USARacing Series on July 18th. Benny and his North South Motorsports team will be headed to the Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA, for the Heritage Trucks 250 presented by Collision Plus Paint & Body / 94.9 Star Country.

"I am excited to get back to the USAR Series to race with many of the guys I have competed with for the past six years," said Benny. "We have had good success at this track and I think we can be competitive even though we have only raced one USAR event this year. We will be returning with proven equipment and the added benefit of strong power plants from Roush Yates Race Engines."

Benny won the race last year competing in the USAR North Division. In seven starts at the speedway, Benny has one pole, six top five's, seven top ten finishes and has won the race four times. Benny has the second highest number of USAR starts at the speedway behind Jeff Agnew, who has 13 starts.

This will not be the last USAR race for Benny this year. "We plan to race several other selected races that fit into the schedule of USAR and Nationwide events that we have planned for this year," said Benny. "We are planning to race at least South Boston and Iowa."

Come join Gordon and the rest of the Pro Cup drivers on July 18th at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA. Gates open at 3:00pm. Qualifying starts at 4:30pm, on-track autograph session begins at 5:30pm and the green flag waves at 7:00pm. For ticket information, contact Motor Mile Speedway at 540.639.1700.
