GAFFNEY, S.C. – Mike Wallace and the No. 01 JD Motorsports team are prepared to head to the action-packed Bristol Motor Speedway with the support of Calhoun’s. The restaurant is a part of the Copper Cellar Family of Restaurants including Copper Cellar, Smoky Mountain Brewery, Chesapeake’s, and Cherokee Grill. The team has high expectations for Bristol after running well there last year, finishing in the top 20 in the summer night race. Wallace will pilot the same car the team ran in that event, chassis JDM 007. Crew chief Marc Browning will lead the Calhoun’s team as they look to improve on their 2013 points position. While out west, Wallace spent one day testing with teammate Danny Efland and road course ace Ron Fellows. JD Motorsports is pleased to announce that Calhoun’s has joined the organization as a partner for Bristol. Calhoun’s has been in business for almost 30 years and currently has eight locations located across East and Middle Tennessee. Known for their award winning hickory smoked ribs and BBQ, the team is excited to represent the brand at a national level. To learn more about Calhoun’s, check out Calhouns.com, or follow on Facebook or @Calhouns on Twitter. Mike Wallace Quotes: “After spending two weeks out west in Phoenix and Vegas, I am glad to be home, and I am sure the team is too. They have worked on our car from Bristol last year, where we were fast, so I am looking forward to running strong. It’s great to have a local restaurant on the car, Calhoun’s, so I know the team and I will be eating good this weekend!” Tune in for the Win: The NASCAR Nationwide Series moves to the high-banked Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend for a 300 lap race and ESPN2 will have a live telecast on Saturday, March 16. NASCAR Countdown begins at 1:30 p.m. ET with the green flag at 2:13 p.m. MRN Radio and Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Ch. 98 will also carry the action Saturday. The racing will be preceded by qualifying at 10:35 a.m. on Saturday and two practice sessions at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday.
