Bobby Labonte in Stavola Labonte entry

Bobby Labonte will drive Stavola Labonte Racing’s No. 10 Chevrolet this weekend for the Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway.

The 2000 Cup champion finished 22nd at Charlotte Motor Speedway last month with the team, which is co-owned by his brother, two-time Cup champion Terry Labonte, and Billy Stavola. The brothers are from Corpus Christi, Texas.

It is the last of three races the team plans to run this season. Terry Labonte is scheduled to drive for the team in 2011.
