Go Army, beat Navy


Joe Nemechek's Army Chevrolet leads David Stremme's Navy Dodge down the Chicagoland Speedway front stretch
during the USG Sheetrock 400, July 10. This marked the first time both Army and Navy competed in a NASCAR race.
They finished in the same order, with the Army coming in 15th and the Navy in 16th place in Stremme's first NEXTEL
Cup start.

Nemechek began driving for the Army Racing Team in 2003, after joining the team for the final four races of the season.
In October 2004, Nemechek took the Army car to Victory Lane for the first time ever — taking the checkered flag at
Kansas Speedway. Nemechek ended the 2004 season with three top-five finishes, nine top-10 finishes and won the
pole position twice.
