Grubb leads the Pack at Martinsville

Martinsville, Va. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 25, 2006

Kevin Grubb led 20 laps of the NASCAR Busch Series’ return trip to Martinsville Speedway before a hood-pin problem dropped him to a 33rd-place finish on Saturday.

Grubb, driver of the No. 56 Western Sizzlin Chevy Monte Carlo SS, was one of only four competitors to lead a lap in the Goody’s 250, the first Busch Series race here since 1994. And because he was leading during the middle of the race, Grubb also collected the Bank of America Card Service Mid-Race Leader Award.

“It felt good to get up there and lead a little bit,” said Grubb, who was making his third start this year for Mac Hill Motorsports.

Grubb headed to the pits after being passed for the lead. But when the No. 56 returned to the field, contact was made with another car, which caused the hood pins to come out. So NASCAR black-flagged the Western Sizzlin Chevy, and ordered Grubb to pit to have the problem fixed.

The Mac Hill team secured the hood with helicopter tape, but a race official couldn’t see the clear adhesive, so the 56 was shown another black flag, which, at the half-mile Martinsville track, meant losing even more laps.

Despite this difficulty, MHM owner Jack McNelly called the weekend a success. After all, his team handled a brake issue well in practice, and Grubb charged up the field from his qualifying spot of 24th before being caught by only point-leader and eventual race-winner Kevin Harvick.

“All in all, I was really pleased,” McNelly said.

John Comstock, director of marketing for Western Sizzlin, said he was excited to see Grubb at the head of the pack. And he said Western Sizzlin has fielded tons of e-mails from fans requesting Grubb’s hero card.

Western Sizzlin’s partnership with MHM proved a great way for the restaurant chain to make its mark in the Busch Series, Comstock said. “We think it was very successful.”

Grubb’s next race with Mac Hill Motorsports will be Saturday’s Gateway 200 presented by Shop ‘n Save at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Ill.
