MB2 MOTORSPORTS ENTERS KRAIG KINSER IN MICHIGAN ARCA RACE

BROOKLYN, Mich. (Aug. 16, 2005) -- World of Outlaws racer, Kraig Kinser, who joined MB2 Motorsports' driver development program this season, will compete in Friday's ARCA RE/MAX Series event, the Hantz Group 200 -- at Michigan International Speedway (MIS).

The 20-year-old son of legendary sprint car racer, Steve Kinser, is coming off an emotional weekend. He won Sunday night's Knoxville Nationals main feature at the half-mile oval in central Iowa, the most prestigious race in the World of Outlaws Series.

Kinser's ARCA team will be a joint venture between MB2 Motorsports and Andy Hillenburg Racing. Kinser will drive the No. 10 Chevrolet with sponsorship from CENTRIX Financial, U.S. Army and Checkers/Rally's.

Doug Randolph, MB2's driver development manager, will be Kinser's crew chief. The team will also receive support from members of MB2's No. 01 and No. 10 Nextel Cup teams.

"I'm not expecting to change the world in Michigan, I just want to get in some solid laps, make the fewest mistakes as possible and learn all I can," said Kinser, of Bloomington, Ind. "I've enjoyed working with Doug (Randolph) and feel good about the relationship I have with the MB2 organization. I am really excited about getting to Michigan and competing in the ARCA race."

Kinser, the 2004 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year, completed four test sessions in an ARCA car -- at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C., Lakeland (Fla.) Speedway, Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway and MIS.

"We are thrilled to have Kraig as part of our driver development program," said Jay Frye, MB2's general manager. "He's a natural and has grown up in one of the most successful racing environments in motorsports history."
