Without so much as a chance to cool his jets following Corvette Racing’s 2nd place finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Ron Fellows has turned his attention to NASCAR’s Nextel Cup Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the Infineon Raceway on Sunday. The road-racing specialist has five combined wins in NASCAR’s Truck and Busch series, but so far a Nextel Cup race win has eluded him.
“It’d be huge,” Fellows said of a possible win. “It’s why we keep pursuing it. It’s unfinished business for me. We’ve been fortunate enough to win in the Truck Series and the Busch Series, but I really want to get a win in Nextel Cup. “When you look at how big and popular Nextel Cup racing is, it’s impossible to ignore. It would be, without a doubt, one of the biggest wins I’ve ever had.”Fellows will be substituting for Tony Raines in the Hall of Fame #96 Chevrolet. Ron has 15 starts in NASCAR cup races finishing in the top 10 4 times and twice in top 5.
“I thoroughly enjoy doing [NASCAR races], whether it’s Busch, Cup or Truck,” Fellows said. “The Nextel Cup Series is the cream of the crop and on the competitive side of it, these guys are all very, very good. The racing is incredibly close and that’s enjoyable. “It’s also a lot shorter than what I’ve been doing recently [Le Mans] — and I don’t have to get out of the car during the pit stops.”The Toyota/Save Mart 350 starts at 3:30pm and will be televised on TNT.
