NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Driver brings Movie Credit to Memphis

Soon you'll hear the engines of the Nascar Craftsman Truck series firing up at the Memphis MotorSports Park for the O'Reilly 200... 

Auto Racing is a multi-million dollar business..so it's rare when you see the lone individual racing with few sponsors and only one ride..

That describes Chad McCumbee...

The 23-year old drives the Number-8 Chevy Silverado...and he does it VERY well...

McCumbee is currently 10th in points this season...

McCumbee looks a bit familiar...he played the role of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in the ESPN movie "3"...the Dale Earnhardt Story.

He was 19 when he did it 4-years ago.

He drove the Number 8 in the Movie..

He hopes his Number-8 truck does as well here in Memphis.

Practice laps for the O'Reilly 200 are this Friday...

The Race set for Saturday Night at the Memphis MotorSports Park.
