Brent Sherman will compete in front of friends and family this weekend at the Chicagoland Speedway as the North Barrington, Illinois resident gets to enjoy home track advantage for the 200. While Sherman has competed at Chicagoland once before, he brings a wealth of experience and steady on-track improvement back this season.

Sherman has led laps in each of the past two events at Winchester Speedway and the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds mile-dirt oval. His string of improving performances on mile-and-a-half race tracks has been on a steady increase evidenced by a career-best second place finish at Kansas Speedway in June. Sherman hopes to bring that consistency back home to Chicago and possibly earn his career first win.

?I don?t think I could pick a better location to race coming off two races that we have been so strong and led laps,? said Sherman. ?A solid performance at any race track is exciting, but a solid performance in front of friends and family would just be incredible.

?This entire Sherman Racing team has really come together even stronger over the past few weeks,? said Sherman. ?I feel like our communication has improved and the pit crew has just been incredible getting me out in front. I've been able to lead some laps and now I just need to lead the most important lap of day, the final one.?

While Sherman was forced to the garage area prior to the end of the event at DuQuoin, his performance on the race track in qualifying and laps-led gave him the bonus points he needed to move within 35 points of fifth in championship points and 170 points from the third position.

?We're staying focused on the championship, but we are even more focused on winning a couple of the final races of the season,? said Sherman. ?I'm still working on my plans for the 2004 season and I would certainly like to add a couple of ARCA RE/MAX Series wins to my resume.?
