Truex to Drive Navy Chevrolet at Chicagoland
Jul 5, 2006 - updated Jul 5th, 2006 11:28am
Web posted by jrmotorsport.com

Mooresville, NC. --

Chicagoland Notes

For the second week in-a-row, Martin Truex Jr. will step up to drive the No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. In addition to his Nextel Cup responsibilities, Truex will run the No. 88 in the NASCAR Busch Series USG Durock 300 at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday. He is filling in for JR Motorsports regular driver Mark McFarland who was injured in an on-track accident at Milwaukee.
In Truex’s two previous Busch Series starts at Chicagoland, his best starting position is 16th and he picked up his best finish at the track last year when he took the checkered flag in seventh. He also led three laps in last year’s USG Durock 300.
The Navy team is bringing brand new chassis No. 022 to Chicagoland this weekend.
Last weekend Truex drove the No. 88 Navy Chevrolet to an eighth-place finish at Daytona International Speedway.
McFarland and the team picked up their best finish of the season in April at Talladega Superspeedway. He started 27th and finished seventh there.
JR Motorsports and The Cycle Xchange have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind custom chopper benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Central and Western North Carolina. The 2006 TCX/Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chopper debuted at the Speed Street Festival in Charlotte on May 25 and is scheduled to be on display at select NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races and select motorcycle rallies including Sturgis Bike Week. The chopper will be up for bid on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/dalejr) starting at 11 p.m. EST on Sept. 29. Dale Jr. will present the chopper to the winning bidder during on-stage festivities at the 7th Annual Celebrity/Sports Auction on Oct. 24.


Martin Truex Jr., Driver of No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

“I had a good time driving the Navy Chevrolet last weekend at Daytona for the JR Motorsports team, so I was definitely willing to help them out again this week at Chicago.



“I had a pretty good run last year at Chicagoland, and I’m looking forward to getting back there to see what I can do in the No. 88.”



Wes Ward, Crew Chief of No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS

“I like Chicagoland. It’s one of the nice facilities we visit each year, so it’s always a pleasure to go back. I also like the surrounding area as well.



“We’re glad to have Martin back in the car this weekend after he did such a good job for us at Daytona, but we’re looking forward to getting Mark back in the car as soon as possible.”



Navy Notables

The fleet honoree for Saturday’s race at Chicagoland Speedway is the USS Chicago (SSN 721). The operation, upkeep, and entire effectiveness of the submarine is carried out by 140 enlisted men and officers. Pearl Harbor has been Chicago’s homeport since 1997.

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.
