MINGUS AT ATLANTA… NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Mason Mingus will pilot the No. 15 Georgia 811 Chevrolet Silverado at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) in the Hyundai Construction Equipment 200.
AMS DEBUT… The 20-year-old will turn his first ever laps at the 1.54-mile track this weekend.
GEORGIA 811… The No. 15 will have support from Georgia 811, a member of the national “Call 811” underground damage prevention initiative that encourages do-it-yourselfers, landscapers and contractors to “Call Before You Dig” to avoid unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. The non-profit organization includes more than 775 member utility companies, including cities and counties throughout Georgia that benefit through reductions in lost time, accidents, service interruptions and costly repairs.
MEET MINGUS… The Brentwood, Tennessee native will be at the NCWTS autograph session on Saturday, February 28 from 12:30 – 1:15 pm in the Tara Ballroom at AMS.
FROM THE DRIVER… “Atlanta is the only track on the schedule that I haven’t had the chance to race on, but I am really excited for it,” said Mingus. “From everything I have heard about it, I believe that it will be a track that fits my driving style. I have a strong Georgia 811 Chevy for this weekend, which will show when we hit the track in Atlanta.”
