MARTINSVILLE, Va. – CR7 Motorsports has tapped Doug George to lead the team ahead of Saturday’s NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway with driver Codie Rohrbaugh.
George, a longtime NASCAR veteran crew chief, joins CR7 with a wealth of knowledge and a winning history – a valuable asset to the Mooresville, N.C.-based team.
Rohrbaugh an accomplished short track racer from Petersburg, W.Va., looks to impress with George at his side.
“Daytona was tough, but that’s history and we’re focused forward,” said Rohrbaugh. “We’re excited to have Doug join the team and be a strength to our growing operation.
“I’m eager to get to Martinsville and some good ole’ short track racing and put our No. 9 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet Silverado in contention for a strong finish.”
In two NGOTS starts last season, Rohrbaugh made his series’ debut at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, another short track where he successfully qualified into the field before charging to a respectable and career-best 16th place run.
This weekend, the 25-year-old hopes for more of the same with the leadership of George and general manager Mark Huff.
“We have some really smart guys on this team with a lot of heart and dedication,” added Rohrbaugh. “It’s our goal to go to Martinsville this weekend and have a solid recovery and get some momentum for our next race at Texas Motor Speedway next weekend.”
