DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (February 16, 2012) - - CGH Motorsports and driver Chad Hackenbracht will be sporting a new paint scheme in Daytona which was created by the most famous artist in racing, Sam Bass. Chad had an opportunity to meet and talk with Sam Bass on their way to an autograph session in Knoxville Tennessee for the Food City Family Nights.

“It was really great to spend time with Sam, Chocolate Meyers and Miss Sprint Cup on the flight from Concord to Knoxville. It gave me a really great chance to meet and listen to the stories. As I spent time with Sam it really sparked my interest to have him design the next Tastee Apple paint scheme, so I called him up and he created a really nice piece for me and the team. We have some new characters that have been added to the mix and they really bring the car to life. I have to thank Sam Bass for taking the time to design the scheme and I look forward to putting it out front where it belongs,” said Chad Hackenbracht.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Chad and designing the 2012 Tastee Apple No. 58 ARCA car. He is a fine young man with lots of talent…and it is so great to see him surrounded by such a supportive family. I really enjoy the opportunity to get involved and work with drivers early in their careers and watch what they turn into as they pursue their dreams… It is one of the exciting things about my job!” stated Sam Bass.

The new characters car and Chad along with sponsor, Tastee Apple will have a contest in the near future to “Name those Characters” in which winners will win great prizes. Check out www.CGHMotorsports.com and www.TasteeApple.com for upcoming details.

CGH Motorsports is also proud to have Tim Fedewa join the team in Daytona as Chad’s driver coach and spotter. With Tim's experience in racing and his current position as a spotter for Marcos Ambrose in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, his experience will help Chad work towards the next level.

Sam Bass, NASCAR’s first officially licensed artist, has had a passion for the excitement and color of racing since attending his first race at six years old. His motorsports art career hit high gear shortly after he graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1984. He began doing a program cover art for Charlotte Motor Speedway in May 1985, and has created all of their covers since, 66 consecutively. Sam’s paintings and design work have caught the eye of many drivers, sponsors, and other personalities in the motorsports world, and he is a fan favorite. He opened the current Sam Bass Gallery in October 2000. The gallery houses Sam’s covers for several tracks on the NASCAR circuit and guitars he has designed during his career. Looking into the sport’s future, Bass keeps tabs on up-and-coming drivers, is a frequent guest on many talk shows and stays involved with sponsors and drivers both on and off the racetrack.

After winning Rookie of the Year award in the ARTGO Challenge Series, Fedewa went on to join the American Speed Association. Fedewa scored one top five finish. A third place at Winchester (Indiana) Speedway, And five top 10's on his way to the ASA's Pat Schauer rookie of the award in 1991. During Fedewa's time in the ASA his car owners Ray and Diane Dewitt also owned the RaDIUS team that fielded cars for former ASA standout Ted Musgrave. Fedewa drove the No. 55 D-R Racing Enterprises Ford. Fedewa's NASCAR career began when he started racing full-time in the NASCAR Busch Series for the 1993 season. He would finish second for Rookie of the Year honors, and in the five years that followed, he won three races and finished in the top-ten in points four times; his highest finishes were 7th in both 1995 and 1998. He began piloting the No.36 Stanley Tools Chevrolet Monte Carlo in 1999 and would continue to for two-and-a-half years, until he and the team parted ways during the 2001 season.

After acting as spotter to Bill Elliott and then later to Kerry Earnhardt, he was ironically hired by FitzBradshaw Racing in 2003 to replace Earnhardt in the No. 12 SuperCuts / Cottman Transmission Dodge. In racing for the team, Fedewa reached as high as ninth in the 2004 points standings before dropping to 16th by the end of the season. Fedewa’s second place finish stands as the best finish of any FitzBradshaw Racing driver ever.

In 2005, Fedewa failed to finish in the top-ten in twenty-one Busch Series starts, and was subsequently released by FitzBradshaw Racing on July 25, 2005. A week later, he was signed by Glynn Motorsports, a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team, to drive the #65 Dodge. He raced in seven events for the team; his highest finish was 10th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Since then, he has not participated in a NASCAR race.

Fedewa made one Cup start in 1994 for Ray DeWitt at Dover; he finished 23rd. He made a brief return to the series in 2000 in a relief appearance at the Coca-Cola 600, substituting for injured Petty Enterprises driver John Andretti.
