Indy 500 Champ Buddy Rice Will Race At MMP

Tooele County, Utah (August 11, 2006) -- Brumos Racing owner Bob Snodgrass announced today the addition of two drivers to the Brumos Racing teams for the season-ending Discount Tire Sunchaser nine-hour race at Miller Motorsports Park on Saturday, September 2, adding Buddy Rice and Roberto Moreno as third drivers in their two-car Daytona Prototype effort.

Buddy Rice, the 2004 Indy 500 winner, will join David Donohue and Darren Law in the No. 58 Brumos Racing Red Bull's entry. Rice competed in Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve earlier this season, finishing ninth in the Rolex 24 at Daytona with Finlay Motorsports.

Brazilian Roberto Moreno, with experience in Formula 1, Indy Racing League, and ChampCar, will co-drive the No. 59 Brumos Racing Porsche Fabcar entry along with J.C. France and Hurley Haywood. Moreno competed this year with Brumos Racing in the No. 59 machine in the Linder Industrial Komatsu Grand Prix of Miami, finishing 12th.

"Each of these drivers' records and performance speak for themselves and we are very excited to have them on board with us," said Snodgrass.

Both Brumos Racing entries will be in Riley MKXI Porsche-powered chassis. This race will be the last race of the season and will be broadcast live starting at 12:00pm MT on SPEED.

Tickets for the Discount Tire Sunchaser can be purchased on line at www.millermotorpark.com or by calling (801) 325-SEAT (7328).
