Compton In At Mcclure

17356Jpg
Busch Series regular Stacy Compton will take over driving chores of the Morgan-McClure Motorsports Kodak Pontiac for this Saturday night's NASCAR Winston Cup Series Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

Compton has 87 Winston Cup starts with one top-10 and two pole positions to his credit. Both poles were at Talladega Superspeedway in 2001.

The 36 year-old Virginia-native raced in the NASCAR Weekly Winston Racing Series for seven years compiling 36 wins, 39 poles and over 150 top-five finishes prior to making his Winston Cup debut at Martinsville Speedway on April 21, 1996. Compton has 54 Busch Series starts with one win, six top-fives, 15 top-10s and two poles. In the NASCAR Truck Series, Compton has 85 starts, two wins, 25 top-fives, 44 top-10s and nine pole positions.

Compton will drive the No. 4 Kodak Grand Prix featuring Disney’s epic motion picture, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The special "wrap" will be the first time a Kodak-sponsored race car has featured a motion picture theme.

"I am excited to get a chance to work with Larry and Morgan-McClure Motorsports," Compton said. "Larry and I have known each other for many years. I raced at Lonesome Pine Speedway every weekend and would stop by their shop on the way to the track. It is nice having a Virginia-based team paired with a Virginia driver."
