Fellows To Drive For JRM, TBR At Watkins Glen
Ron Fellows will drive the No. 5 JR Motorsports Chevy in the Zippo 200 Nationwide Series race at Watkins Glen International. He will be behind the wheel of one of three JRM Chevys at the upstate New York road course. Aric Almirola and Jimmie Johnson will pilot the other two cars.
Fellows won at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal driving for JRM in 2008.
Fellows will also drive the No. 36 Golden Corral Chevy for Tommy Baldwin Racing in the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen. Dave Blaney, the No. 36′s regular driver, will drive the No. 35 at the Glen.
Fellows drove for TBR last year at the Glen. He finished 40th after a suspension problem.
I am excited to pick up where we left off last year. … It is always great to be a part of the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen. We had a decent qualifying run last year at the Glen, but then didn’t finish the race after we were running inside the top-15. Although it is a year later, we are just looking to build on that.
TBR owner Tommy Baldwin added:
We had pretty good success last year until we were wrecked halfway through the race. We want to finish what we started last year. It’s always good to have a road course ringer, and Ron is the best of them. Dave has done a great job for us this season, so we are excited to field the 35 car for him as well.
