Central City, KY: Brewco Motorsports Inc., which fields the No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the NASCAR Busch Series, announced today it has mutually agreed to end its four year relationship with driver Mark Green at the end of the 1998 NASCAR Busch Series season.
"Mark has done a tremendous job over the last four years with Brewco Motorsports," said team owner Clarence Brewer Jr. "He is a solid driver, a good friend and also one of the best sponsor representatives in NASCAR racing. Mark and the entire Brewco Motorsports organization has worked hard to put the No. 37 Timber Wolf car in the winners circle. Maybe the chemistry was just not there.
"This was a very difficult decision to make," said Brewer. "I consider Mark a good friend but the change is necessary to benefit all involved. We are announcing this to allow Mark the opportunity to land a quality ride while some are still available. If any team wants to ask my opinion of Mark, I'll give them my endorsement of him not only as a driver, but also as a person."
The driver of the No. 37 Timber Wolf Chevrolet Monte Carlo for the 1999 NASCAR Busch Series season will be announced at a later date.
"We've spent four years and two full seasons together, but, as a team, have not progressed as we should have," said Green. "Hopefully, this change is the best for everyone involved. I'm currently looking for options for 1999 in the Busch Series."
Brewco Motorsports, based in Central City, Kentucky, also fields the No. 37 Red Man Chevrolet in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with driver Scot Walters and will field a NASCAR Busch Series team for driver Casey Atwood in the 1999 season.
