Playboy reunites with Michael Shank Racing at VIR

(Alton, VA) 28 April 2007-- Michael Shank Racing will sport a familiar look this weekend as the No. 6 Lexus-Riley will once again don the Playboy logo for the Rolex Sports Car Series race at Virginia International Raceway. Playboy was a Michael Shank Racing team partner for much of the 2006 season with Tommy Constantine and Mike Borkowski.

The No. 6 entry is being piloted by Ian James and Burt Frisselle, who is stepping in for car owner Henri Zogaib for the VIR weekend.

"It's great to have Playboy back with us again this weekend," said team owner Mike Shank. "I want to thank Tommy (Constantine) for helping put this program together. Last time we had the Playboy logo on our car we finished fifth and hopefully we can have another good run for them this weekend at VIR."

The Michael Shank Racing entry will not be the only Playboy-livered Daytona Prototype on track during the two and a half-hour DP-only race on Sunday, as Constantine and Borkwoski will also be sporting the famed bunny logo on an Pontiac-Riley entry.

"I'm am happy we got the chance to work with Mike (Shank) again this weekend," said Tommy Constantine. "His guys do an excellent job and hopefully we can have both Playboy cars running up front."

Speed Channel will bring live coverage of the race on Sunday starting at 1:00 PM ET.
