Terre Haute, Ind. -- June 5, 2004 -- Boston Reid and the R.E. Technologies Racing team is hoping for their first win of the young season as the USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown Series heads to the "Sumar Classic" at Terre Haute Action Track, Saturday June 5th in Terre Haute, IN for the second dirt race of the season.
"The last two years at Terre Haute, we should have won the race," said Santucci. "I believe our car will be good this year. This will be the first track that we are racing at that Boston has raced at before."
The R.E. Technologies Racing team was second quick in qualifying in 2002. In 2003 the #35 car was gunning for the lead at the end of the race when the car suffered fuel pickup problems.
"I am excited to go to Terre Haute," said Reid. "Terre Haute has been really good to me so hopefully we can continue that in our Silver Crown car. I think the momentum from this weekend will carry us and we can have a good race. This car has always been good at Terre Haute, so hopefully we can continue and get our first win."
