Spencer Moves To Morgan-Mcclure

ABINGDON, Va. - Morgan-McClure Motorsports announced that "Mr. Excitement", Jimmy Spencer, will pilot the No. 4 NEXTEL Cup Series car for the upcoming Samsung/Radio Shack 500 at Texas Motor Speedway after the team released driver Kevin Lepage.

Additionally, Featherlite, Inc. the "Official Trailer" and "Official Luxury Coach" of NASCAR, will be the primary sponsor of the No. 4 Chevrolet Monte Carlo at Texas.

"I am happy to be in the No. 4 Monte Carlo this weekend," said Spencer. "They are looking for a sponsor and I am looking for a ride. I know I do not have a lot of years left to drive in this sport. I have never seen any more determined group of people than Larry McClure and his brothers.

"When I drove for Junior Johnson, Tim Brewer (No. 4 crew chief) worked for Kranefuss. Although I never worked with him, I knew Tim for years through Junior. I think he is one of the savviest crew chiefs out there, especially calling races and making pit calls. I look forward to working with him.

"I have been watching the races this year. I am not real sure what to expect with the new tires. I think once I take the race car around the track a few laps, it will give me a better idea of what the car needs. Larry and the guys
are very open minded for changes."

The 47-year-old Spencer will take over the wheel of the No. 4 Featherlite Monte Carlo at Texas while starting in his 441st career NASCAR Cup Series event. The Berwick, Pa.-native has two wins in the elite series since his first Cup Series start in 1989, each taking place in 1994 with victories at Daytona and Talladega. He has garnered 28 top-fives, an amazing 80 top-10s and three pole positions.
