NASCAR’s David Stremme Announces a Minimum
Three-Race Schedule with the CRA Super Series
Commits to Races at Anderson, Winchester and Plymouth
Series PR Report
Champion Racing Association officials announced today that NASCAR Nextel Cup Series competitor David Stremme released a schedule of at least three CRA Super Series events during the 2010 season, with possible additional events to be added at a later date. Stremme committed to competing in the Mid Summer Championship 200 on July 11th at Plymouth Speedway, the Redbud 300 on July 26th at Anderson Speedway and in the 39th Annual Winchester 400 on October 16th at Winchester Speedway in his own David Stremme Racing late model.
Stremme, who raced full-time in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series for Roger Penske last season, will make his third Cup start of the 2010 season with owner Bill Jenkins in the #26 Air National Guard Ford in this weekend’s Subway Fresh Fit 600 at Phoenix International Speedway after strong runs at Bristol and Martinsville for Jenkins.
"I'm really looking forward to getting back and racing more events with CRA in 2010,” remarked Stremme. “It’s a great series, with great racers and great race tracks...and at the end of the day it’s just a lot of fun! We plan to fit the CRA events around the NASCAR Cup and Nationwide commitments we have this year."
Stremme is a former CRA Super Series regular competitor prior to his ascension to the NASCAR ranks, but has returned to compete in several events over the past three years. The South Bend, Indiana native has three CRA victories to his credit. Stremme got his first series win in 1999 at Salem Speedway.
Stremme added, “We've been fortunate to win a couple of big CRA races in the last couple of years, with the Mid Summer Championship 200 at Plymouth last year and the Winchester 400 the year before. I had a little fun with Kyle Busch after his Winchester 400 victory this past season, telling him his victory was a little hollow since the reigning event winner wasn't in it...I'll give him another shot at trying to beat me at the 400 this year!"
Stremme raced many times at Winchester Speedway during the development of his career while racing with the CRA Super Series and the American Speed Association. Stremme is also a former track record holder at Winchester, which occurred on his first ever attempt to qualify on the famous High Banks on September 7th, 1998. He finished fourth in that race, his first ever CRA Super Series event. Stremme is a long time friend of Winchester Speedway owner Charlie Shaw, who helped Stremme in his early days of late model racing.
"The victories in the Winchester 400 are so special because in most other major events you have to beat a great field, but at Winchester you have to beat a great field AND an awesome race track!” added Stremme.
David Stremme won the 2008 Winchester 400.
