FINLAY AND VALIANTE SET FOR TOMORROW'S RUNNING OF THE MEXICO CITY 250

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO (March 3, 2006) -- The field has been set for tomorrow's running of the Mexico City 250 and the No. 28 machine, driven by Rob Finlay and Michael Valiante will start the 2 ¾ -hour sprint race from the 21st position. With very little seat time due to electronics problems, Rob Finlay slid behind the wheel of the Make-A-Wish/Z-Line Designs Ford-powered Crawford Daytona Prototype and posted an impressive speed of 104.858 mph in only his second ever Daytona Prototype qualifying effort.

The Mexico City 250 is scheduled for a 3:15 p.m. start Saturday, March 4th and will be broadcast by the Speed Channel at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Driver Quotes: Rob Finlay -- "My confidence continues to grow every time I get behind the wheel and I feel good about our team's chances of finishing in the top-five this weekend."

Michael Valiante -- "Rob did a great job qualifying the car today. He only had a few laps due to the electronics problems we experienced yesterday but the crew has a handle on that now. I feel confident that Rob will bring the car into the pits tomorrow in a solid position and that I'll be able to continue to move up towards the front."
