The Stock Building Supply 4th Annual Home Improvement Show

   Rip Michels Racing and Stock Building Supply are proud to announce the 4th annual Stock Building Supply Home Improvement Show this coming Saturday, August 1, 2009 at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California.
   Stock Building Supply has been a supporter of West Coast racing for over 11 years. Not only is Stock sponsoring the Twin 50 lap races, they will also be conducting a spectacular home improvement show. The Home Show will featuring displays from many of the nation’s largest manufacturers and distributors of the top brand name power tools, windows, doors, decking, siding, fasteners, connectors, paint, and more.
   The Stock Building Supply Home Improvement Show will be the prelude to a great night of Nascar Super Late Model professional stock car racing at Toyota Speedway this coming Saturday night. The home improvement show runs from 4:00PM to 7:30PM. There will be an on-track autograph session at 5:30PM with all the stars of the Nascar Super Late Model Series, and racing starts at 7:00PM.
   Rip Michels, the all time win leader with 58 victories, will be looking to capitalize on the team’s hard work which led them to their first victory of the 2009 season two weeks ago. A victory which made Rip Michels the only driver in the 11 year history of Toyota Speedway to have at least one victory every year.

The Team:

   “This year has been a struggle for us”, said Tire Specialist, Chris Lazalde. “We only raced twice last year, so we have falling a little behind on the set up. However, the last two races we hit on something, and I think we will be fighting hard for the wins the rest of the season.” The team would like to welcome two new crew members, Big Brad, and Noah James Medlin, who is 5 weeks old, and the son of Team Manager Michael Medlin.

The Driver’s Corner:

   “Getting that win last race was really huge for the team,” said Rip Michels. “I was really wondering if I would ever win again, but the hard work has paid off. I am getting my motivation these days by Mark Martin, and Ron Hornaday. I felt if they could do it at 50+, I should be just getting warmed up at 44. Those guys are making old cool again. In fact, I am calling Joe Gibbs next week, I hear they are looking for older guys now. Problem is I might be too young,” commented Rip.

Sponsor’s Corner:

   Rip and the team would like to personally thank Art and Lori Johnson of “Works of Art Johnson” for the awesome glass trophy for the race. We would also like to thank Tim Sweet from Apache Rental Group for his contributions to the Home Improvement Show.
   The team would also like to thank the following associate sponsors Victory Circle, Ron’s Rear Ends, Total Power Batteries, Orme Brothers, BCSportsimages, Apache Studio Rentals. Merengue Bakery & Café, and Hot Rod Hobbies.

The Race:

   The Stock Building Supply “Twin 50’s” will feature the stars of the Nascar Super Late Model division at Toyota Speedway @ Irwindale August 1, 2009 at 7:00pm
