NASCAR BGN Series Gateway 300 Preview -- #37, Scot Walters

23 July 1997


Central City, KY (July 18, 1997) - Louisville, Kentucky native Scot Walters
will make his NASCAR Busch Series debut on July 26 at the Gateway
International Raceway driving the Brewco Motorsports No. 55 Brewco Collision
Repair Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the Gateway 300.

Walters, 29, currently drives the Brewco Motorsports No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet
NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series entry in select events. He made his truck 
series debut on July 12 at the Louisville Motor Speedway, finishing seventh.

"Scot did a fantastic job driving the Red Man truck in Louisville," said team
owner Clarence Brewer, Jr. "If sponsorship can be secured, we would like to
field a truck for him full-time in 1998. In order to preserve his rookie 
status, Scot can only compete in five truck series races this year.  

"To better prepare him for the future and provide him with the most seat-time
possible, we decided to enter a car for him in the inaugural race at the
Gateway International Raceway," continued Brewer. "The Busch Series cars are
very similar in weight and horsepower to the trucks and since this is the 
first race at Gateway, none of the drivers have an experience advantage over 

Brewco Motorsports also fields the No 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet full-time for
Busch Series driver Mark Green. Both Walters and Green spent July 14 testing
at the Gateway International Raceway.     

"I never expected this opportunity with Brewco Motorsports to pan out like it
has," said Walters. "To be able to start in a Busch Series race is definitely
a step up in my career.  After running some laps, I now know what I need to do
in order to prepare myself for my first Busch Series race.  The track drives a
lot like the Homestead Motorsports Complex and I really like that track. My
goal for the race is to qualify, finish and bring the car home in one piece."

Walters has competed in the NASCAR Slim Jim All Pro Series for the past four
seasons, earning the 1993 Rookie-of-the-Year title. In eight 1996 Slim Jim 
All Pro starts, Walters won two races (Winchester, Indiana and Homestead,
Florida) and scored one pole (Louisville, Kentucky).
