"Team GLOCK Debut At 1.333-Mile Speedway"

MOORESVILLE, North Carolina (July 26, 2007) - - Following the ARCA RE/MAX Series open test at Nashville Superspeedway this past Tuesday, Michelle Theriault roared to impressive times in her No. 37 GLOCK, Inc. Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS preparing for next month's TOYOTA ARCA 150 at the 1.333-mile speed plant.

During the eight hour session, Theriault adapted well to the Lebanon, Tennessee facility. With guidance from car owner Jeff Spraker, Theriault's times improved all day long to unofficially click off the fourth fastest time at 30.83 seconds or 155.303 MPH, just two tenths of a second from session leader Michael McDowell.

With solid lap times in the books, Theriault and Co. feel they are going to be a factor when the series returns to Nashville Superspeedway for the second time this year in two weeks.

"The test was a success," said Theriault, who is running the full NASCAR Busch East Series schedule in addition to limited ARCA runs this year. "Jeff Spraker and the team brought a great car to the track. Everyone did a great job! We had the horsepower and the car handled well. I am really looking forward to the race. We're planning on coming back and unloading even stronger than we did on Tuesday."

Car owner Jeff Spraker offered, "Michelle did a great job. She adapted to the track very well and beat some pretty impressive teams. The more seat time she receives, the more comfortable she becomes in ARCA and the test is another testament to that. We are planning on coming back to Nashville in a couple weeks for a good strong run."

"Michelle has made some impressive strides this year as she moves up to the ARCA Series and the intermediate tracks she is racing. Returning to Nashville after such an impressive test gives us pause to think what may be in store for her at the TOYOTA ARCA 150," states Shelley Decker, of Marketing and Advertising at GLOCK, Inc.
