Ricky Benton Racing Enterprises; Chad McCumbee heads to Atlanta looking to continue improvementPress Release
“For us to get better as a team, we have to be at the race track,” said crew chief Kevin “Cowboy” Starland. “We were better at Bristol than we were at Chicago and we will be better at Atlanta than we were at Bristol.”
Atlanta will be the seventh race that RBR has attempted in 2012 (of 14 total NCWTS events). The team’s original schedule was to run 10-12 of the season’s 22 events.
“It’s good to be getting back to the track so soon with this group of guys and Cowboy,” said driver Chad McCumbee. “We have grown so much over the last two races and I feel that getting back at it with a short layoff will help us work out some of the issues that are keeping us out of the top-10.”
Knowing there would be a relatively quick turnaround to head to Atlanta after Bristol, the team got to work on the truck for the 1.5-mile track prior to heading to Tennessee.
“We are bringing the same truck that ran at Rockingham, Charlotte and Chicago,” said Starland. “But we have put a lot of work into it since it last ran in July. The biggest thing has been the aero package with the body on the truck. We have gotten it a lot better over the last month and I think it will show at Atlanta.”
“We’ve only been together for two races now,” said McCumbee, “but I can’t help but be encouraged by all the hard work all the RBR guys have put into these trucks and this program over that short time.
“I think we are going to see some great results soon.”
