McFarland and Navy Team to Race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway

Charlotte Notes

On Saturday, NASCAR Busch Series driver Mark McFarland will drive the JR Motorsports No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS in the CARQUEST Auto Parts 300 at Lowe’s Motor Speedway.
Saturday’s race will mark McFarland’s second Busch race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway and his third overall race there. In 2004, he ran both the Spring Busch and Truck Series races at the track. The Raybestos Rookie driver will return to a track where he has some experience, as he has logged 332 laps of competition there.
McFarland also picked up additional seat time at Lowe’s Motor Speedway during the open test session held there earlier this month for Busch Series teams. The No. 88 Navy team spent two days learning how the track’s new asphalt and Goodyear’s new tires interact.
McFarland will sign autographs at the Navy booth at the speedway on Saturday from 4:30—5 p.m.
The team is bringing chassis No. 10 to the track this week. The car was last raced at Nashville Superspeedway in April. McFarland started that race from 20th position and was headed for a top-10 finish before he was caught up in a wreck just before the halfway mark. The team made repairs in the garage area and McFarland returned to the track to finish 33rd, 57 laps down.
McFarland was named one of the all-time top 25 drivers in the NASCAR Weekly Series in July’s issue of Speedway Illustrated.
McFarland and the JR Motorsports team picked up their best-ever finish of seventh last month at Talladega Superspeedway. The run also marked the team and driver’s first-ever top 10 as well.


Mark McFarland, Driver of No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

“The track’s a lot smoother. You don’t have to dodge the bumps like you did in the past. It’s got a lot of grip, but the tires cause you to slide around a lot—especially in the beginning of a run when they’re brand new. The more laps you put on them, the faster they seem to get.”



Rich Hubbs, Crew Chief of No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

“We’re coming back to Charlotte with a completely different setup than when we tested here a few weeks ago. We tried some different things during the test, and this setup is an offshoot of some of the stuff we worked on then. There are three practice sessions scheduled, so we’ll have some time to try this new setup and see how it works for Mark.”



Navy Notables

The fleet honoree for Saturday’s race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway is the Field Medical Service School—East, based out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. The unit trains Navy Medical Department personnel in field medical techniques, Religious Ministry personnel in field ministry techniques and all personnel in combat survival skills necessary to serve with and support operational Marine Forces. The Field Medical Service School was initially activated in April 1943 to meet the growing requirement in World War II for combat medically trained officers and enlisted personnel. In 2005, the unit was designed by the United States Marine Corps as the Health Services Training and Education Center of Excellence.

Noting the Navy

The Navy has used its association with NASCAR over the past two years to increase America’s awareness of the opportunities to serve our great country. The Navy is very excited about further increasing its awareness through NASCAR in 2006 by an association with JR Motorsports as it exemplifies the Navy’s commitment to grow and develop quality young sailors through service in the Navy.



JR Motorsports

JR Motorsports, a Mooresville, N.C., based company owned by Nextel Cup driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., fields the No. 88 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS that competes in the NASCAR Busch Series for the 2006 season with the U.S. Navy. The move into the NASCAR Busch Series as a team owner is the next step in the evolution of Earnhardt Jr.’s career.
