NASCAR'S Tony Stewart to Join Duno, Wallace and Lammers

June 27, 2004 -- CITGO Racing will repeat a two-car effort for the second time this season in the Paul Revere 250 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL June 30-July 1, 2004. CITGO Racing and Howard-Boss Motorsports will field two entries -- the #2 CITGO-branded Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype driven by Milka Duno and Jan Lammers and the #20 CITGO-branded Pontiac Crawford Daytona Prototype driven by Andy Wallace and Tony Stewart.

Fans and journalists alike will remember that CITGO Racing and Howard-Boss entered two cars in the season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona. NASCAR stars Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr. teamed with Andy Wallace in one car, while NASCAR star Robbie Gordon joined Milka Duno, Doug Goad and Stephan Gregoire in a second car.

Milka has driven twice with Jan at both the recent 6 Heures du Circuit Mont-Tremblant in Canada and the Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, New York. For these two endurance races Jan joined season-long driving partners Milka and Andy. The trio delivered a 5th place overall finish at Canada and a 7th place overall finish at New York.

"I've really enjoyed racing with Jan these last two races," commented Milka. "He brings so much experience to the effort and I feel that we work very well together. I look forward to running with him at Daytona and think that we have a good chance for a good result. It is great to have Tony back for the race too! I know that he had a lot of fun driving the race with Andy and I look forward to seeing him again. I'd also like to thank CITGO for letting us field this two-car effort for this race and for the opportunity to team again with Tony."

The Paul Revere 250 is the 6th race on the 12-race Rolex Sports Car Series schedule and will be held at Daytona International Speedway as part of a slate of racing that includes the Busch Series' Winn-Dixie 250 and the Nextel Cup Series Pepsi 400.

The Rolex Sports Car Series race will be on Thursday night, July 1 at 11:00pm EST and will be a 250-mile, 70-lap sprint race on the circuit's 3.56-mile road course. The race will occur right after the qualifying session for the Nextel Cup event.
