Gentleman Start Your Hauler
March 26, 2006
Denver, CO- Bristol was a no go for Furniture Row® Racing. Inclement weather forced qualifying to be cancelled and therefore, the qualifying order was dictated by the owners' points. Team Furniture Row hasn't accrued enough owners' points to make the cut and was sent packing.
Crew Chief Joe Garone explains, "It's disappointing when you're prepared to race, and the weather gets in the way."
Next stop for the team is Martinsville. Martinsville’s .526 mile-oval is the smallest, and one of the oldest tracks in the circuit. It's tricky to maneuver because it's concrete through the turns, and asphalt in the straightaway. It's important to qualify well in order to get a decent finish, because there isn't a lot of space to pass. NASCAR prohibits testing at Martinsville. However, driver Kenny Wallace has historically performed well at the track. The team is looking forward to the opportunity to race. According to Garone, the primary objective at Martinsville is to accrue owner's points.
