BAM, Petty Team Up For Showdown

BAM Racing and Petty Enterprises are teaming up for the Sprint Showdown race this weekend at Lowe’s Motor Speedway, according to Paddock Talk. Under the terms of the one-race association, Petty will field a Dodge for Chad McCumbee (he played Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the movie 3: the Dale Earnhardt Story) but the entry will be listed as BAM Racing’s No. 49.

This is because NASCAR rules state that a team must be in┬áthe top 50 in owner’s points from the previous year in order to compete in the Sprint Showdown.

Beth Ann Morgenthau, BAM’s owner said:

Since our team is hard at work trying to secure sponsorship and return our Toyota to the track a little later in the year, we were glad to help them out. … I suppose you could say that when the King asks for a favor, we listen!
