08 Feb 5-Hour Energy Racing Awaits the Green Flag on the 2010 Season
5-Hour Energy Racing is back on the grid and ready for more 200+ mph action for 2010 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
After the checkered flag dropped on the 2009 Nationwide season back in November, the 5-Hour Energy Racing crew has been working meticulously to get the new #66 5-Hour Energy Toyota Camry primed and ready to rock in the season starter at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, Feb. 13 in the DRIVE4COPD 300.
Driver Steve Wallace, son of NASCAR great and team owner Rusty Wallace, will enter his third season with 5-Hour Energy Racing. In 2009 fans watched 22 year-old Wallace push the #66 to a 7th place championship finish. Wallace received a number of accolades during the ’09 season including a “Most Improved Driver” award and being part of the only team to have both drivers finish in the Top-10.
This year 5-Hour Energy is bringing race fans an even more exclusive experience across multiple platforms including Facebook, Twitter and the Energy Shot Blog during the races and throughout the week when the car is not on the track. In the spirit of competition, which you should know by now the 5-Hour Energy loves, the 5-Hour Energy Racing page will feature contests, big and small, throughout the season to put more 5-Hour Energy shots in our fans’ pockets.
The NASCAR Nationwide series is a long one, February to December, with a race almost every weekend. The team travel, pit box setup, race-day preparations, car tuning and celebrations are more than exhausting for just one race, and these guys are doing it again and again. You can bet that the 5-Hour Energy Racing pit crew has a little something special to keep the alert and the #66 at the front.
