Wood Brothers to Run 2009 Sprint Showdown and on Twitter.com

The Wood Brothers #21 Motorcraft sponsored Ford Fusion will be running in the May 16, 2009 Sprint Showdown race and trying to make the All-Star race that immediately follows The Sprint Showdown.

Co-owner Len Wood stated, “We made the decision to run the race because it gives us track time for the Coca-Cola 600 (to be run the following weekend) and gives our sponsors (Ford and Motorcraft) another marketing opportunity – not to mention it’s a fun event and five minutes from our shop.”

Bill Elliott and the Wood Brothers #21 Ford Fusion can make the All-Star race by finishing first or second in The Sprint Showdown race or by being voted in by the fans. If you would like to vote for Bill Elliott to be the fan’s choice in this year’s All-Star race go to www.nascar.com/promos/allstar/?sc_cid=allstar5 or click on the “Vote” image and vote for the #21 and Bill Elliott.
