CyberSpeed Racing Changes Its Focus

LEEDS, Ala., July 30 - CyberSpeed Racing team owner Skip Cummins decided to withdraw the team's Riley Pontiac No. 97 from today's Porsche 250 Rolex Series race at Barber Motorsports Park here in light of recent decisions he has made as to the team's future focus.

The Daytona Prototype is being put up for sale and the Maiden, N.C.-based team will now concentrate on its plans to compete in another form of motorsports for the rest of 2006 and all of 2007.

"We'll have some exciting news to announce soon, but Skip decided to withdraw from today's race," co-driver and team managing director Tony Ave said. "He doesn't want to risk damaging the car, and is putting it up for sale in completely race-ready condition. Now we're going to focus all our attention on another form of racing that will be a better fit for our team."

Ave qualified 13th for today's race, just 1.943 seconds off the pole position.
