Lamar Pilots No. 27 to 27th-Place Finish at Bristol

No. 27 Kleenex Ford Fusion Spends a Night Under the Lights

 
(Bristol, Tenn.) August 24, 2008 – Burney Lamar and the No. 27 Kleenex Ford Fusion team headed east to Bristol to experience an under the lights race on the world’s fastest half-mile track. It was Lamar’s first time behind the wheel of the No. 27 car.

Lamar qualified the No. 27 Kleenex Ford Fusion in the 28th position with hopes to push the car to the front of the field. However, the team battled a tight car all night and could not get the necessary track position to gain ground on the leaders.

“We fought track position all race long,” said Jeff White, crew chief. “The No. 27 Kleenex Ford Fusion had good lap times and was running well. We went out early in qualifying and didn’t get to start with the best track position. Running here at Bristol, track position is everything and we weren’t able to achieve what we wanted tonight. There were very few cautions and that hurt us. Burney did a great job with the No. 27 Kleenex Ford; it’s time to shift focus to California.”

The No. 27 Kleenex Ford Fusion team heads to the west coast as they are back in action on Saturday night at Auto Club Speedway in California.
