SUNRISE, Fla (August 12, 2005) - California driver Ken Dobson will join Scott Schlesinger in piloting the No. 68 SpeedSource Mazda RX-8. Ken will join the team to race the final 3 Grand Am Cup events, beginning at the EMCO Gears Classic at Mid Ohio. While Ken has only two prior drives in the SpeedSource Mazda this season, he certainly has his fair share of Grand American experience.

Dobson competed at the 2004 24 Hours of Daytona, where he co-piloted a Porsche 911RS in the GT class. He followed up with a third place finish in Grand Am Cup, ST-1 class, in Fontana. Prior to 2004, Ken recorded three Grand Am Cup wins and left Phoenix International Raceway with a new qualifying and track record. Dobson has spent most of the last four years competing in Speed World Challenge where he twice finished fourth in the Touring Car Championship.

"I am excited that SpeedSource will allow me to continue to race for their team," said Dobson. "The team has been super to work with. I look forward to helping Scott improve his overall standings in championship while obtaining valuable manufacturer's points for Mazda."

"Ken has shown his speed in both outings with us, now with more races with the same driver and car, he can focus on getting the results that he and Scott deserve with the Mazdaspeed RX-8," said team owner Sylvain Tremblay.

Dobson's road racing experience will be a valuable addition to the already strong SpeedSource Mazda camp.
