McFarland to Make First Truck Start of 2005

Mooresville, NC. --

October 25, 2005

Mark McFarland will make his first NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start of 2005 in the No. 52 Chevrolet Vortec Max Engines Silverado fielded by Ken Schrader Racing and pushed by a Richard Childress Racing power plant. SpeedScrap and the ScrapShack, leaders in the motorsports photo scrap booking industry, will also adorn the entry as associate sponsors in the Easy Care Vehicle Service Contract 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS).

The Winchester, Va-born McFarland, who will have veteran Donnie Richeson as his crew chief, has ten previous NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts, however, none of those have been at AMS. McFarland’s best finish of sixth came at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway in May of 2004. His last start came in August of 2004 at Nashville Super Speedway.

McFarland is also competing full-time in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series for the Dale Earnhardt Jr.-owned JR Motorsports where he has one win, six poles and nine top-five finishes.

McFarland on his first Atlanta start:
“You definitely get around that place in a hurry. I’ve always loved high speed tracks so there will be no intimidation factor. I’ve been to Charlotte and Homestead so I feel like we can get our Chevy Vortec Max Silverado dialed in and be competitive.”

McFarland on his goals for Atlanta:
“We are going down there with every intention of running up front and contending for the win. I’m in very good equipment from Ken Schrader Racing and I don’t strap myself behind a wheel and not intend to go for the win. But, at the same time, we are going to use it as a learning experience as well and hopefully I can pick up on some things that will help ease my transition back into the Busch cars next year.

Accelerate Your Life: McFarland will compete full-time in the NASCAR Busch Series in 2006. He will pilot the No. 88 Navy Chevrolet Monte Carlo, fielded by JR Motorsports, in his quest for the title

Championship Pedigree: McFarland has accomplished much in his racing career and capturing the 2003 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series national championship ranks as his crown jewel. He won an amazing 29 times during his championship season, as well as capturing two track championships.

Seasoned Rookie: While the 27-year-old McFarland is technically a rookie, this will be his 11th NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start. He also has nine NASCAR Busch Series starts, most recently in Tommy Baldwin Racing’s rotating lineup of 2004. His average finish of 20th was the highest for the No. 6 entry.
