David Green, driver of the No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet, is anxious to return to Las Vegas in March.  Green, the 1994 NASCAR Busch Series champion, fell only 14 points short of capturing his 2nd series title in 2003 and the Sam¿s Town 300 was key in his quest for the crown.

¿My goals for 2004 are simple: pick up right where we left off,¿ said Green.  ¿That means winning more than three races and ultimately the championship for Timber Wolf.  Last year was so exciting, both on the track and off.  But 2004 is going to be even more fun, trying to outdo last year.¿

¿But seriously, we'd like to win six or more races and at least six poles. We want to lead more laps and be a threat week in and week out.  Team Brewco is ready to rock and roll in 2004.  These guys make my job easy, and I can¿t wait to get back in the hunt.¿

After a disappointing start in 2003, Green and Team Brewco found the momentum they needed at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  A sixth-place finish moved the 46-year-old driver into second place in Busch Series points.  Three wins, eleven top-five, and twenty-one top-ten finishes later, Green fell just short of reaching his goal.  After two months of hard work and reflection, Team Brewco is poised to win their first championship.

¿Las Vegas Motor Speedway is the Daytona of our unrestricted races!  The facility is first class and the competition is unmatched, with three-wide racing all day.  Being able to go test at Las Vegas last year was instrumental in our team¿s great start and finish of 2003,¿ Green added.

David and a number of other Busch Series drivers headed west in January to test at the 1.5-mile speedway.  The weather and the facility make the Vegas test one of the most valuable of the year. 

¿With our new Monte Carlos in 2004, we were excited to get out there and test.  Hopefully, we will be able to take what we learned and use it this weekend and get the Timber Wolf Chevrolet in victory lane and make a statement that we are contenders again in 2004.  This race really sets the pace for the whole season.  Las Vegas is such a fun city to go to and on top of that, this is one of the nicest tracks we run on -- plus Vegas can be a very nice payday.¿

The 2004 Sam¿s Town 300 will mark David Green¿s fifth career Busch Series start at the 1.5-mile speedway.

David will participate in the sixth annual Speedway Children's Charities NASCAR Driver Auction March 4 at Sam's Town Live! at Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Las Vegas.
