  • Powers to race at Daytona: The Powers Motorsports CraftsmanTruck Team will be entered in the CTS race at Daytona. The official NASCAR designated number will be #55(was #5 in 2000). Although failing to qualify in the final race of the season at California, the team is confident it has found some more horsepower over the winter months. Earl Ramey of High Tech Engines of Mooresville NC is the engine builder. Brian Berry of PERC engines of Denver NC will remain crewchief. Several potential associate sponsors have been signed on and will be announced in Daytona, but the search for a primary sponsor goes on. Several companies have expressed interest, but contracts have not been finalized. Plans for a full season of racing and a run for Rookie of The Year will not be finalized until a full time sponsor has been found(Truck Series Site). Doesn’t say who will drive but Tom Powers drove a few races in 2001 in a Dodge(1-29-2001)
  • Crew Chiefs for Roush: Dan Binks, who has been with Roush Racing for 10 years, will assume the role as crew chief for the #50 and Chuck Hossfeld, while Jeff “Lumpy” Campey takes over as crew chief for the #99 and Nathan Haseleu.

  • Compton and the trucks UPDATE: #92 Melling Racing driver, Stacy Compton said that he’s trying to put together a deal to drive in the season-opening truck race at Daytona. Compton would likely drive for Impact Motorsports, the team he drove with before moving to Winston Cup last year(Winston Cup Scene)(1-11-2001)
    UPDATE: Melling Racing and Stacy Compton were hoping to become the first team(with the same driver) to run a Dodge in two of NASCAR’s three premier divisions, the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.  That goal will not be reached, yet, as the team has decided not to compete in the truck race at Daytona. “After the truck test last week, we just weren’t confident that were going to be a contender in the race,” said driver Stacy Compton.  “We realized that we had a lot more work to do on the truck, and with all that’s going on with the new Dodge Winston Cup program, we weren’t going to be able to give the truck a 110 percent effort.  We don’t want to run it unless we can do it right and have a sure shot at winning.  We’re going to work hard to get the truck ready to be a contender at Martinsville (April 7).” Melling Racing will field the No. 92 Kodiak Dodge Intrepid in the 43rd annual Daytona 500.(Melling Racing PR)(1-24-2001)

Then at the inaugural Kentucky race the un-sponsored team reeled off a 6th place qualifying effort. As for 2001 they are working to secure sponsorship for at least a partial schedule.

How we managed to get by this year and then have decent results on top of it is an awesome display of determination by our entire team,” Boyd said. This coming season, the truck will have a brand new 2001 body with a brand new engine.
