Fast & Fun Facts:
McCumbee at Dover: Chad McCumbee has four starts at Dover International Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. His average start is 11.5 (best start, 5th-2009) and his average finish is 13.8 (best finish, 7th-2009). However, this will be McCumbee’s first NASCAR Nationwide Series start at the 1-mile oval.
Honorary Pit Crew Members: 10 NASCAR Nationwide Series teams will host airmen from Dover Air Force Base on Saturday. RAB Racing’s “Honorary Pit Crew Members” include Lt. Col. Ralph Nicholson and Lt. Col. Keith Muschinske. Both are members of the Air Force Mortuary Affairs operation.
In the Garage: Ashley Parlett, RAB Racing’s car chief, calls Dover International Speedway her “home track”. The 27-year-old Wye Mills, MD native grew up racing open-wheel sprint cars. She built every car she ever raced and when the time came to get a “real” job she didn’t venture far from her roots. Parlett has worked with RAB Racing since 2008 and continues to be one of the only female mechanics in the NNS garage.
Points Check: Following a 28th-place finish by Chad McCumbee at Darlington Raceway, the No. 09 entry owned by Robby Benton slipped one spot in the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series owner point standings. The sophomore team currently sits 24th in points a mere 50 markers outside the top-20.
Meet the Drivers of the NASCAR Nationwide Series: McCumbee will join fellow NNS drivers for an autograph session on Saturday, May 15th from 8:00-9:00am in the fan zone area at Dover International Speedway.
