Who Said? Boris Said!!

Boris Said scheduled to race at New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend with the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series.

MILLVILLE, NJ July 15, 2010 Popular road track veteran Boris Said is on the entry list for this weekend's race in New Jersey, co-driving Marsh Racing's No. 31 Whelen Engineering Corvette with Eric Curran.

Said who is known for his wild head of curly hair, has a following of fan's called "Said Heads".

The team competes in the production-based GT class of the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16. The race takes the green flag on Sunday, July18th at 1:00 ET. (SPEED, live).

Marsh Racing, a veteran of NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East competition, first raced in the Rolex Series at Barber Motorsports Park in April. Team owner Ted Marsh said he hopes to have Said in the car for the remainder of the Rolex Series season, as Curran's co-driver.

Said drove to a third-place finish in the 2003 Rolex 24 At Daytona, the debuting race for the DPs. "I was in the first one and I really believed in the idea and the concept and it's become one of the most competitive series in the world," Said recalled. "You look at other series and you know which prototype is going to win because it has a competitive advantage, but not with GRAND-AM, where it's all about the driver, team and manufacturer. It isn't about just having the best car."

Said raced with Turner Motorsport in the season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona, finishing eighth. He ran in one full Rolex Series season, losing a tiebreaker for the GT championship to teammate Bill Auberlen in 2004. He scored five of his seven career Rolex Series class victories that year. Said also has one overall victory, winning at Watkins Glen in 2006 as a replacement for Krohn Racing. To purchase tickets, please visit www.njmp.com or call 856-327-7217.
