Chassisdyne Motorsport Announces Affiliation With University of Northwestern Ohio Race Club

ST CLAIR SHORES, MICHIGAN (TUESDAY, JANUARY 27, 2004) - - Ed Wettlaufer, owner/driver of the No. 40 Chassisdyne Motorsport Dodge in the ARCA RE/MAX Series proudly announced he has reached an agreement with the University of Northwestern Ohio Race Club to have five young and upcoming students be a part of his ARCA team.

In 1999, University of Northwestern Ohio instructors saw a need to provide students with an organization that would promote activities centered around the growing high performance program. The University of Northwestern Ohio Race Club was developed to meet this need. Since its inception, students have been able to participate in a variety of programs. Students offer technical support to race teams that come into Limal and Motorsports Park on Friday evenings.

A relationship was formed with Ron Drager, Director for the ARCA RE/MAX Series race teams. The educational experience the students gain from these activities is invaluable. In the interest of providing students with a well-rounded education, UNO Race Club is looking to expand its presence in the ARCA RE/MAX race series and into other areas of Motorsports.

Other areas of interest include: stock cars, drag racing, road racing, tractor/truck pulling, and motorcycle racing. We would love to hear from any race team with an interest in providing the students of the UNO Race Club with the opportunity to serve them.

Chassisdyne Motorsport would like to officially welcome Jeremy Putman, Matthew Logan, Brian Kienzle, Jon Summers, and Justin Calhaun to the team.

"I feel that the UNO Race Club is one of the finest programs out there in the ARCA RE/MAX Series," said Ed Wettlaufer. "These students have an amazing future ahead of them, and I feel that 2004 is going to be our best year in competition and I'm honored that these students will be apart of that."

Chassisdyne Motorsport will run a limited ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule in 2004. The team has worked nonstop this past off-season with hopes of blasting their way into victory lane by seasons end.

The team has brought on new partners, and advertisers, moved race shop, and updated their 2001 Dodge Intrepid to a 2003 Dodge Intrepid, along with snatching a Ray Evernham Motorsports engine for the season.

"We've been working hard, while others may have been taken it easy," explained Wettlaufer. "We've made some key changes, which I think will benefit our team this season, I'm hoping that when our checkered flag falls this year, we can give ourselves an A."

Chassisdyne Motorsport, located in St. Clair Shores, Michigan is still searching for primary and associate sponsor for the 2004 ARCA RE/MAX Series. Any inquires can send the team an email at: Chassisdyne04@aol.com
