Little To Race For BACE

Winston Cup regular - well, at least until last week - Chad Little will drive the No. 74 BACE Motorsports Chevrolet at the Busch Series events at Lowe's Motor Speedway and Homestead Miami Speedway this year.

Terry Wooten will stand in as crew chief for this second BACE team. BACE currently fields the No. 33 Bayer Chevrolet driven by the Tony Raines.

Little - who was replaced by Kurt Busch in the No. 97 Roush Racing Winston Cup car last weekend at Dover - tested the No. 74 at Lowe's this week and says, "The No. 74 has a great history behind it. BACE won three Busch Series championships with it and two rookie titles.

"The team and owner Bill (Baumgardner) have made me feel at home here. I've spent a number of days at the shop and some time with Tony (Raines). The atmosphere is really good and they're just eager to get this going."

Baumgardner said, "Chad will make an excellent addition to BACE's efforts this year. He works well with our staff and is as excited as we are about racing at Charlotte and Homestead.

"It'll be thrilling to see the No. 74 back on the track. We started BACE with the 74. It means the world to us to have that team active again."

Little claimed the runner-up position in the Busch Series in 1995 and fifth in 1996. He finished 15th and 23rd, respectively, in the 1998 and 1999 Winston Cup standings.
