Go Green Racing, Inc and Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, MA are pleased to announce that MacDonald will be driving the Go Green Racing #39 at Memphis Motorsports Park on October 24, 2009 in the “Kroger on the Track for a Cure 250” sponsored by The Kroger Company, a retail grocery chain.
Go Green President and owner of the # 38 Camping World East Series team, Archie St. Hilaire, says “We are very happy to have Eddie driving the #39 car for us at Memphis. There will be many challenges for both the team and driver as we both step up to the second highest form of motorsports in the country. We purchased a Ford Fusion Nationwide car a couple of months ago and have been preparing the car down at our Mooresville, N.C . shop to enter a few Nationwide races before the end of the season to see if it is where we want to be for next season. We originally wanted Eddie to race at Richmond in September but agreed that he should focus on winning the Camping World East Championship this season for the first time in his career. This would be a huge plus for us going into Memphis and beyond.”
Buddy Desrocher will be the crew chief of the 39 car headed to Memphis and will be assisted by Eddie’s crew chief Rollie Lachance, who has lead Eddie to many wins over his career including the coveted “Oxford 250” this summer at Oxford Speedway in Oxford, ME along with two wins last year at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Eddie is excited about making the move up to the next level saying, “This is a great opportunity for myself and the Go Green crew to test ourselves against some of the best drivers in the country with Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, and Dave Gilliland already signed up for the race. Memphis is a fast ¾ mile track that challenges even the best NASCAR drivers. Hopefully after we finish New Hampshire and Dover with high finishes and hopefully the championship, we can concentrate on getting ready for Memphis with a little testing of the car at a short track near Charlotte.”
The #39 car will be sponsored by BBI Waste Industries in Old Orchard Beach, ME . and longtime supporters of Eddie Macdonald Racing, Ken Thompson of Hancock Electric Motor Service of Quincy,Ma. and Ed Dooley from A & B Vending in Canterbury,N. H.
