MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Petty Enterprises will use three
different drivers in the Number 45 Dodge over the next three races
as it continues to evaluate the slumping team.
Chad McCumbee will attempt to qualify the car this weekend at
Pocono Raceway. Kyle Petty will try to qualify the car the next
week at Watkins Glen, and Terry Labonte will drive
it at Michigan. The Number 45, typically driven by Petty, is currently 41st in car owner standings and 273 points out of the top 35.
Petty hasn't raced the car since Lowe's Motor Speedway in May.
He took a six-race hiatus to join TNT during its portion of the
NASCAR broadcast schedule, and has given up seat time this season
to both McCumbee and Labonte.
