We waited all race long to make our move and all we really needed to worry about was the end, especially with all of the wrecks. I thought I was going to have my first top-ten and my first top-five. It was so close, and if we could have just made it one last lap. But it was great
San Bernardino, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2008
Erin Crocker held her own in the foneGEAR46.com Chevrolet Silverado in the season-opening Chevy Silverado 250 at Daytona International Speedway last Friday night. With the coaching of veteran spotter Keith Barnwell she ran a solid race, avoided the race-halting six caution flags, and drafted her way to a steady 14th place finish for the Morgan-Dollar Motorsports #46 truck.
"We waited all race long to make our move and all we really needed to worry about was the end, especially with all of the wrecks. I thought I was going to have my first top-ten and my first top-five. It was so close, and if we could have just made it one last lap. But it was great," Crocker said, referencing her position after a last lap shake-up in the infamous draft.
"I have to thank David Dollar and all these guys. They worked really hard for me and I wish I could have given them the finish that they deserved. But at least we showed them what we could do, and the truck is in one piece, and hopefully we can get a sponsor and keep going. I am excited to get to California."
Just a week out from Daytona, Crocker will head to the 1.5-mile California Speedway for what she and her team hope will be just-as-successful racing. She and the No. 46 David Dollar-owned team will again partner up with foneGEAR46.com. Crocker's No. 46 truck will be painted an eye-catching pink and be graced with the foneGEAR blue and white logos. St Jude Children's Research Hospital will again adorn the bed of the truck to raise awareness and funds for the miracles created there every day.
In addition to designing the new pink paint scheme for the No. 46 Chevrolet Silverado of Crocker, foneGEAR has designed special product promotions to kick off its support for NASCAR, which will be available at http://www.foneGEAR46.com.
