MB Motorsports Takes Two Trucks To Talladega
After a strong run at Talladega last year, MB Motorsports is heading to the world’s fastest superspeedway as a two truck team. Scott Stenzel will drive the #63 Mittler Brothers Machine & Tool / ShowcaseOfCars.com / Eagle Rock Camp Chevy Silverado and Justin Jennings will be behind the wheel of the #36 Mittler Brothers Machine & Tool / LG Seeds / Excel Bottling Chevy Silverado.
"Last year, with 8 to go, we were up to sixth as we made our move to the front. I was thinking we were heading for a top five finish, definitely a top ten," recalls Stenzel. “And then, on the very next lap, there was a chain reaction wreck on the backstretch. We got hit from behind, sending us into the inside retaining wall and our day was done.”
That was then, this is now. MB Motorsports is back with two trucks and looking to improve on their performance. Crew chief Trip Bruce is optimistic about the teams’ chances this weekend. “Scott has raced quite well at Talladega and I think we may have the best superspeedway truck MB Motorsports has had. If we can improve, even just a little bit, on last years’ performance and avoid the wreckage that always seems to occur, we should be in good shape.”
After their initial outing last month, ShowcaseOfCars.com is back with MB Motorsports and has joined the team in their support of Eagle Rock Camp. “We started working with Eagle Rock Camp last year in Daytona,” says team owner Mike Mittler. “They do a lot to help military families dealing with the after-effects of war. They find themselves in a unique position. A very generous benefactor has offered to donate a “turn-key” facility in Michigan. This property will give Eagle Rock Camp everything they need for a permanent home to help our veterans and their families. In order to secure the donation, Eagle Rock Camp needs to raise the monies to properly maintain the property for two years, which means they need to raise about $150,000. We’re just trying to help them meet their goal.“
Adds Justin Jennings, “The donor of the property is a veteran and has made the following requests- they have to have a caretaker live on premises, they have to develop and provide a two year sustainable budget and the property must be used solely to meet the mission of Eagle Rock Camp by serving veterans and active military with their families.”
Race fans can help Eagle Rock Camp reach their goal by visiting www.eaglerockcamp.org and using the donation button to support this worthy cause.
