MAKE Motorsports comes off of a team best to head on to Charlotte.
Shelby, NC (May 14, 2014) –MAKE Motorsports heads to Charlotte Motor Speedway after a hard earned 17th place finish at Kansas Speedway. Veteran driver TJ Bell debuted the #50 Electric Line truck Chevrolet Silverado at the SFP 250. TJ Bell will pilot the #50 Chevrolet for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, May 16th. Honoring all electrical linemen will continue to be the focus of the MAKE Motorsports program.
The #50 Electric Line Truck will debut a new paint scheme honoring those hardworking linemen on the door. The #50 Electric Line Truck will continue to sport the skull logo in honor of the hardworking electrical linemen on the hood. The #50 Electric Line Truck will carry the logo of the ‘Drivin’ for Linemen 200, which will be held at Gateway Motorsports Park on June 14th, on the bed top. The #50 will additionally carry the banner of ACC Transport, an elite electrical equipment transport company, on the rear quarter panels. The partnership is to bring awareness to these often forgotten hardworking people through industry support. The TV Panel will feature the hashtag #drivinforlinemen which is to be used for all of the efforts in support of linemen.
Mark Beaver, Co-owner of The #50 Electric Line Truck, says "I’m so proud of my guys last week. We had a terrible start to race after the wreck on lap 2 but the guys kept making repairs. They were able to get the truck put back together for a 17th place finish and we are very proud of it. TJ drove hard and the crew never quit, just like the linemen, they keep going until the job is done. I am very proud of this team and what this year will bring.”
The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 will air on Fox Sports 1 on Friday, May 16th and begins at 8:30 p.m. ET.
