South Boston Speedway News
Gresham Confident In Return To South Boston.....

GRIFFIN, GA --

For Immediate Release (March 29, 2010)

When Max Gresham and his No.18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota take the green flag in Saturday’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at South Boston Speedway, the Joe Gibbs Racing driver will be a bit more relaxed then the last time he visited the unforgiving four-tenths mile oval.
 
“I’m definitely a lot more confident going into the race at South Boston this year than I was last year,” said Gresham, who made his NASCAR K&N Pro Series East debut at ‘SoBo’ on May 30, 2009. “I really didn’t know what to expect last year. There were a lot of unanswered questions for both me and the team. I have a lot better feel for these cars now and I have a great relationship with my crew chief, Mike Sibley, and the rest of the guys on my Joe Gibbs Racing team. Last year, we were still trying to figure all that out.”
 
If Gresham wasn’t familiar with the tight South Boston oval or with his JGR teammates, he didn’t show as he rolled to an impressive fifth-place finish in the 2009 South Boston 150.
 
“My goal was to finish in the Top-10, maybe the Top-5 if I could,” said Gresham after last year’s event. “South Boston is a tight place and my car got a little dinged up from the contact, but it was no big deal, It was just good, old-fashioned short-track racing. Honestly, all I really wanted to do was bring the car back intact. We accomplished all of that and I had a blast.”
Gresham eventually competed in four NASCAR K&N events for JGR in 2009 posting three top-10 finishes, In the 2010 NASCAR K&N season-opening event at Greenville-Pickens Speedway last weekend, Gresham appeared to be in line for another great finish running fifth with just 13 laps remaining when an accident not of his making knocked him out of the race.
 
“A car in front of us missed a shift on the restart and stacked us all up going into the corner,” Gresham stated.  “The car in front of me hit him and I had my car slowed down to where I wasn’t going to run into them. Then I got hit from behind and shoved into the wreck.  When I came into the pits, the crew found that we had a hole in the radiator and that ended our day.”
 
Despite the disappointing 24th-place finish, Gresham is confident he can rebound with another top effort at South Boston Saturday.
 
“I know we can win the race,” said Gresham. “We ran great at South Boston last year and I know we’re going to be even better this year. We were the fastest car on the track late in the race last weekend at Greenville. My Joe Gibbs Racing team is so good and I know every time I go to the track that we are going to have a fast car. I’m just fortunate that I’m the guy who gets to drive it.”
 
Gresham and his Gresham & Associates sponsored No.18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota will take the green flag in the South Boston 150 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time Saturday. The event will be part of a NASCAR doubleheader that will also feature the NASCAR Whelen Southern Tour modifieds.
 
Qualifying in that division is set for 12:20 p.m. Time trials for the NASCAR K&N Pro Cup Series cars is scheduled at 1 p.m. and will be followed by an autograph session and race at 3 p.m.
 
The 150-lap NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour event will be run at the conclusion of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race Saturday.
 
For information about sponsorship/partnering with Max Gresham  and his NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and ARCA efforts, please contact Tony Gresham at tgresham@greshaminc.com.
