McClure to attempt Daytona 500
Eric McClure hopes to be the "Cinderella Story" of the Daytona 500 as he makes his second attempt to qualify for the Daytona 500. McClure's first attempt dates back to February 2005 with Raabe Racing. Hefty Brand is making its second appearance as primary sponsor of the #04 Chevy during this year's running of the Daytona 500, which is referred to by many as the Super Bowl of Auto Racing.  

Hefty Brand first adorned the hood of the No. 04 Chevrolet during the UAW- Ford 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in October 2006. The #04 will be fielded by Morgan McClure Motorsports (MMM), located in Abingdon, Virginia. Calling the shots for driver Eric McClure from atop the pit box is MMM veteran employee Robert Larkins. McClure will be attempting to qualify for his fourth career Nextel Cup Series event. McClure has a career best start of 27th (Talladega- October 2006) and a best finish of 26th (Talladega- April 2004). Morgan McClure Motorsports (MMM) and McClure participated in the first of two 3-day practice sessions at Daytona International Speedway earlier this month posting the 48th fastest time out of 64 cars with a time of 48.766 seconds.
