LEBANON, Tennessee (Wednesday, August 8, 2007) Blake Feese is back. After notching another top-10 performance in his second outing of the season last month at Kentucky Speedway, the two-time ARCA RE/MAX Series winner returns to the site of his first career victory looking to give himself a boost while delivering his Sadler Racing team with a Gibson guitar in their backyard.
After strong runs at Kansas and Kentucky , Feese returns to Nashville Superspeedway, looking to return to victory circle for the first time since 2004. Oddly enough since scoring that victory, Feese hasn’t returned to the 1.333-mile facility, but no doubt he’s excited about the return.
“I’m really thrilled to be going back to Nashville this weekend,” said Feese, who looks to make his eighth career ARCA start Saturday. “I haven’t been to the track since the win, so I’m definitely looking forward to going back. On the strength of two great runs with the Sadler Racing team, we are looking forward to having another strong run on Saturday afternoon.”
In their last venue at Kentucky Speedway, Feese and the team finished sixth after starting 39th. The team qualified 23rd but had to relinquish that position after changing motors following qualifying. With only 60 laps of green flag racing, the showing by Feese and Co. proved they can conquer almost any problem that tries to stand in their way.
Continuing their association with the Scottish Rite and the Fuel Performance Catalyst (FPC), Feese and Sadler Racing are looking forward to giving them their third straight top-10 run.
“It’s an honor for me to continue to promote the Scottish Rite and FPC. We had a great run in our last outing at Kentucky and it offered a lot of television coverage. We are looking to do the same on Saturday.”
Sadler Racing participated in the open test at the Lebanon , Tennessee track last month. Feese, the Saybrook, Illinois native produced the 10th fastest lap with a time of 31.190 seconds at 153.511 MPH.
The team opted to bow out of qualifying runs and focus on race runs. Sadler Racing wore out two sets of Hoosier tires trying to find the perfect setup with the hopes to award the organization with a Gibson guitar trophy on Saturday.
“The test went really well,” offered Feese, a former competitor in the World of Outlaws. “We spent the whole day focusing on race runs. We’re bringing the same Dodge Charger we competed with at Kansas and Kentucky , so we know it’s a good piece. I would really be disappointed if we didn’t deliver another good run.”
Sadler Racing still has openings on their Dodge Charger for the remainder of the 2007 season. Immediate one race or long term sponsorship positions are available. Contact the team today and see how the ARCA RE/MAX Series provides a successful ROI (Return-On-Investment).
The TOYOTA ARCA 150 (113 laps/150 miles) is the 15 of 23 races on the 2007 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule. The 14th ARCA race held at Nashville Superspeedway is a two-day show. Practice begins Friday, August 10 with a two hour and a half hour (11:00am-1:30pm) session planned. ARCA SIM Factory pole qualifying is set for later in the day at 5:30pm Local Time.

About The Scottish Rite:
The Scottish Rite is a Masonic organization that continues a Master Mason’s education of the first three degrees. The Scottish Rite consists of the fourth through 32nd Degree and an honorary 33rd, which is awarded for exceptional service.
About Fuel Performance Catalyst (FPC):
FPC is a fuel additive that changes the burn rate for internal combustion engines. It works by making the fuel burn more efficiently. Independent tests have confirmed that FPC reduces fuel consumption from four percent to eight percent.
Besides increasing fuel economy, FPC will extend engine life and performance. Since the engine will be burning fuel more effectively, hard carbon cannot build up on critical engine components. Hard carbon causes injector coking and accelerates engine wear.
FPC also reduces pollutants. Laboratory tests have shown reduction in carbon monoxide (CO), unburned hydrocarbons (carbon particulate), Particulate Emissions, sulfur dioxide (SO2), and NOx. Additionally, FPC will reduce oil contaminants caused by soot and carbon generated in the combustion process.
