Monteith to showcase Kyle Busch Motorsports Chassis for Thanksgiving All-Star Classic
BRISTOL, Tenn. (Nov. 25, 2013) — Two-time defending Tennessee NASCAR Whelen All-American Series State Champion Nate Monteith of Bristol, Tenn. will showcase the lone Late Model Stock Toyota Camry built by Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) Chassis in the Thanksgiving All-Star Classic between Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 at Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, N.C.
The partnership will allow KBM Chassis to further evaluate the first-ever Late Model Stock built by the company. In the chassis' lone start, KBM owner-driver Kyle Busch led 65 of 75 laps with the Toyota Camry en route to victory in the 2013 Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway in April.
During the 2011 and '12 racing seasons at Kingsport Speedway, the 31-year-old Monteith captured back-to-back Late Model Stock titles and recorded 10 feature wins each season (22 total pole awards) to bring his career late model victory tally to 67. Along with the two Kingsport Speedway titles, Monteith also has two track championships at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, Va.
"When you look at what Kyle Busch Motorsports has accomplished in both NASCAR and Late Model Racing, it just made me feel good that a team of their caliber wants me to race their car for a weekend and provide feedback to Kyle Busch Motorsports Chassis shop," said Monteith while taking a break preparing the Toyota Camry at his race shop.
"After renting a Late Model Stock the first few years for Denny's race and putting a lot of time and effort into refurbishing it, Kyle decided that we'd be better off having KBM Chassis build one in-house," said Bond Suss, KBM's Late Model Manager and Shop Foreman. "The car was really fast at Richmond and Kyle was really happy with it, so we want to have another driver evaluate it for us as we are looking to build a few more this offseason and begin providing them to a few select customers."
Monteith will chauffeur the East Tennessee Distillery - Tennessee Mellomoon, Ultratech Race Development, Kyle Busch Foundation, The Joie of Seating, Driven Steering Wheels, No. 51 Toyota Camry in the upcoming Thanksgiving All-Star Classic at Southern National Motorsports Park.
