Nashville, TN (November 8, 2004) - Chuck Barnes Jr. had to rely on his racing skills and a little luck to get the biggest win of his young racing career in capturing the All American 300 Sunday afternoon at the Music City Motorplex in Nashville, Tennessee. Barnes, the 2004 Sunoco Super Series Champion, got lucky when a caution for a wreck in the back-stretch happened just as he had to pull on pit road after running out of fuel while trying to stay out and save his new tires for the end of the Sunoco Super Series and O'Reilly Southern All Star Racing Series Co-sanctioned race. Barnes was able to stay on the lead lap after getting fuel and tires. Barnes battled back through the field and came out on top of an awesome last 50-lap battle with Eddie Hoffman and Jason Hogan to get the win and the coveted winners Epiphone guitar trophy.

"To have the Epiphone guitar for winning at Nashville means a whole lot to me," remarked Barnes Jr. "I was over at Frank Kimmel's shop and he told me that his guitar trophy from winning an ARCA event at the Nashville big track was the best trophy he's ever got! I had to call him from victory lane to tell him that I've got one now. He said "way to go."
