Musgrave Ready to “Groove” in Atlanta

MOORESVILLE, NC --

American Commercial Lines 200 - Race Preview

Ted Musgrave, #9 Team ASE/Germain Toyota Tundra





MOORESVILLE, NC ((March 12, 2007) – Every driver has their preferred style of racing – for Ted Musgrave, driver of the #9 Team ASE Toyota Tundra, it’s what many people call the “intermediate tracks.” Atlanta Motor Speedway is high on Musgrave’s list because there are so many grooves drivers can use to make fast laps at the Hampton, Ga., race track. Musgrave has a lot of love for Atlanta, but oddly enough, has never led a lap there in his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series career. He hopes to change that stat in this weekend’s American Commercial Lines 200.

“It is crazy, but I really enjoy racing at Atlanta. I don’t know why the stats don’t back me up a little better on that fact, but Atlanta is a really fun track to race,” said Musgrave, the 2005 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion.

The excitement of Atlanta racing for Musgrave is that there is no end to the possibilities of the racing action at Atlanta.

“Atlanta racing is always going to be exciting, even unpredictable. It's a track with a ton of grooves - there's not much chance of getting held up in traffic in Atlanta. It seems you can always find another way to get around that track,” said Musgrave.

Rumor has it that some of Musgrave’s crew members are planning to hold off on hair cuts until the Truck Series veteran finds his way back into victory lane. Musgrave hopes he can keep the guys from missing too many hair cuts.

“Obviously, we're looking to get the Team ASE Tundra around Atlanta faster than anyone else. We had a great run there last spring, it was a big weekend for our team. I think really any time is a good time to get Germain Racing back into victory lane, but I guess we need to get the Team ASE Tundra into the winner's circle soon because I've heard that some of the guys on the team are going to wait until we get there to cut their hair again. I don't know if that rumor is true, but I'm hoping we can get a win for this #9 team so we don't have to really find out if that's true or not!”

Musgrave takes the Team ASE Tundra to Hampton, Ga., sitting sixth in the point standings.

Incorporated on June 12, 1972, the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was established as a non-profit organization to help improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians and parts specialists. Today, there are more than 400,000 ASE-certified professionals who work in dealerships, independent shops, service stations, collision repair shops, auto parts stores, fleets, machine shops, schools and colleges throughout the country. For more information about ASE, visit the Web site at www.ase.com.

Germain Motor Company is an automotive dealership group owned by brothers Bob, Steve, and Rick Germain. Collectively they own 15 dealerships representing 12 different manufacturers in Columbus, OH, Naples and Sarasota, FL, Bentonville, AR, and Houston, TX. Germain has been associated with Toyota since 1968 and currently owns four Toyota franchises, three Lexus franchises along with Acura, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Lincoln Mercury, Mercedes, Nissan, and Hyundai. The company also owns the naming rights for the Germain Arena in Southwest Florida and the Germain Amphitheater in Central Ohio, as well as an interest in the Columbus Destroyers’ arena football team.
