Michelle Theriault Looking for Redemption at Gresham

MOORESVILLE, NC (June 8, 2011) – After three weeks off of the track and out of her No.45 ProGold Lubricants, VPParts Warehouse Toyota, Michelle Theriault is ready for a comeback at Gresham Motorsports Park (GA). Although Theriault was plagued by unfortunate circumstances at Iowa Speedway, the 25-year-old female racer is looking for redemption during her visit to Gresham.

“I couldn’t be more ready to get back on track,” said Theriault. “The last couple of races haven’t resulted in my favor, and I would love to finish my weekend at Gresham on a high note.”
The Slack Auto Parts 150 marks the halfway point of the NASCAR KN Pro Series East (NKNPSE) 2011 season and is a crucial stop on the series’ schedule. Having raced at Gresham on three separate occasions during her time in the USAR Pro Cup Series, Theriault feels prepared to tackle the half-mile oval.
“Although the track has changed quite a bit since I’ve raced there in Pro Cup, it’s always easier to return to familiar territory,” said Theriault. “I really want Gresham to be the track where we turn our luck around.” 

In addition to her experience racing at the track in Pro Cup, Theriault also had the opportunity to test at Gresham last Tuesday. The seat time not only strengthened Theriault’s confidence to maneuver her No.45 machine to a solid finish at Gresham, but built up her excitement for the 150-lap event, too.
“I’m glad that the team and I were able to visit Gresham so that we could be better prepared for the race this weekend,” commented Theriault. “Being able to shake down the car and to familiarize myself with the track again is really going to be beneficial when we show up on Saturday.”
Theriault and her No.45 ProGold Lubricants, VPParts Warehouse Toyota will take to the track for the 150-lap, 75-mile Slack Auto Parts 150 on Saturday, June 11 at 8:30 p.m. EST. Practice is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by two-lap qualifying at 4:30 p.m. Live audio coverage and lap-by-lap updates of the Slack Auto Parts 150  will be available on
