After previously announcing his return to Insight ThunderCar Figure 8 racing, Terry Malone Jr. has decided to drive for Anderson Speedway championship owner and driver Herb Rose. In the upcoming season, Malone will wheel the No. 66 in the ThunderCar Figure 8 division.

“I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to drive for Herb Rose in 2005 and my goal is to bring him a first ThunderCar Figure 8 championship,” said Terry Malone Jr. “Working with Herb and Ronnie Rose this season is a great opportunity for me to learn from some of the best in Figure 8 racing.”

While the main focus for Malone Jr. is the Insight ThunderCar Figure 8 points title, he will make select appearances in Herb Rose’s No. 66 in the Boss Hogg Catering & Jerky Figure 8 division. One the events they plan to compete in will be the 56th National Crown on Saturday, July 23.

Terry Malone Jr. will follow in his father's footsteps driving a Herb Rose car. Terry Malone raced one of Herb’s cars during his stint in Figure 8 racing.

In 2004, competing in his initial ThunderCar Figure 8 campaign, Malone Jr. recorded six top-five finishes and additionally scored 11 top 10s. His season best effort was a second-place showing that initially took place on July 2 and for the second occasion on July 23 during the MAX/WLBC Friday Night Summer Series. Malone Jr. placed eighth in the final points tally.

Malone Jr. has enjoyed a great amount of success at Anderson Speedway during his career. In the 2002 season, he earned the Insight ThunderCar Oval championship. He has also gained experience in the Terry’s RV Sales & Service Street Stocks.

This season, Malone Jr. will drive Herb Rose’s No. 66 with sponsorship from Hog House, Jones Auto Parts, B&F Machine Shop and Wyatt Furniture.
