Title: Shane Huffman to Run Busch
Post by: Cheryl on July 10, 2006, 01:19:52 PM
Here's the official announcement from JR Motorsports:

"The NAVY and JR Motorsports announced Saturday that  they will continue their partnership through the 2007 season. AND: Along with the sponsorship announcement:Shane Huffman will make his debut with JR Motorsports in the Busch Silver Celebration 250 at Gateway International Raceway on July 29. Joe Nemechek's inactive Busch team will provide the car for Huffman, who currently drives for Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Hooters Pro Cup team. Earnhardt Jr. hopes to field two full-time Busch Series teams in 2007, one for current driver Mark McFarland and a second for Huffman. Earnhardt Jr. also wants Huffman to run four or five more Busch races later this year. Earnhardt Jr. also said he's hired Martin Truex Jr.'s cousin, Curtis Truex, to driver Late Model Stock cars. (Scene Daily) (07-08-06)"

Cool that our friend, Shane, will get the benefit of Joe Nemechek's equipment for his debut with JR Motorsports.   :-D
