Sellers Turns Heads in Texas, Notches 26th Place Finish in Backup Car
Apr 5, 2009 - updated Apr 5th, 2009 10:02pm

Fort Worth, TX. --

For Immediate Release:April 5, 2009

Peyton Sellers completed his first 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series race this weekend without incident and a solid 26th place finish. Most would call that a successful first race. Given that it was with a brand new team and in a backup car that had only seen the track during qualifying, you might call it more than that.

After unloading with an impressive 10th fastest time in Thursday’s second practice for the O’Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway, Peyton Sellers and the #77 SFP Chevrolet were turning a lot of heads.

However, a meeting with the wall in turn one during that same practice session forced the team to go to their backup car to qualify for the race. Sellers still managed to qualify 23rd among 49 drivers, with an average speed of 183.187 mph on the 1.5 mile track.

Texas is an impound race, which gave the team no opportunity to make changes to the backup car before the start. It was apparent from the drop of the green flag that the car needed adjustments.

“I just can’t charge the corners like I need to”, said Sellers over the radio. “The thing is wicked loose on entry.”

In a race that saw only four caution flags all day, the team pitted under green on lap 56 to make their first round of adjustments. Sellers exited in 36th place and a lap down. The team continued to make changes as they could, with the car finally beginning to respond near the end of the race. Despite the handling issues, Sellers managed to keep the car out of trouble for the duration of the race, and was as high as 21st place during the day.

“We came loaded for bear”, said team owner Will Spencer. “We had some adversity, and we overcame it. We left the track with a solid performance and a clean run all day. That’s a successful first race in my book. They knew we were there.”

The team’s next race with primary sponsor SFP is scheduled for May 1st in Richmond. The team is also sponsored by Jig-A-Loo USA and Bosch, and has a partnership with the national student non-profit organization SkillsUSA.
