Support The Team: FreeFeds.org will continue their primary sponsor of Tucker’s Dodge at Kentucky Speedway. A new sponsor to the ARCA RE/MAX Series this season, FreeFeds.org intent is simple. FreeFeds.org’s sole purpose is to gain public support for adding parole for non-violent, non repeat offenders to the federal prison system. They are of the belief that the federal justice system is in need of a total reform. The organization, however, is mainly interested in working toward adding a system of parole for non-violent offenders as part of that overall reform.
And Thanks For Your Support: In addition to FreeFeds.org, Carter-2-Motorsports will also carry associate sponsorship from Explore America , The Idaho Observer, RVrentToGo.com, 100fold.net, and Accelerating Developments International (ADI).
Carter-2-Motorsports, Kentucky Speedway Pre-Race Quotes:
Nick Tucker, driver of the No. 48 a href="http://www.freefeds.org/">FreeFeds.org Dodge Charger:
On Winchester Speedway : “Sheer disappointment. We had a great car. It was a car capable of finishing in the top-10 but we have some bad luck with the engine. Nothing we can do about it except move on.”
On Kentucky Speedway : “I am looking forward to going back to Kentucky . I haven’t been there in two years, but I think we’ll be okay. We are working to improve our mile-and-a-half program, so I’m sure we’ll have some work to do, but we are going with our head held high and looking for a solid finish.”
On Night Racing: “Night racing is so much fun. I really wish we would do it more often. The weather conditions improve the racing I think. I think the fans are going to see a great show and it’s going to be one of the most exciting events of the year.”
On Points: “We slipped to 24th in ARCA RE/MAX Series owner points which is unacceptable to me. We deserve to be a lot higher than that. We’ve had good cars just a lot of bad luck. I hope the monkey will give us a break and we can move forward in both the driver (24) and owners standings this weekend.”
