Benecia, Calif. - Team Cobalt California will arrive at Homestead-Miami Speedway April 13-15 with a strong driver line-up that anticipates top finishes on the combination NASCAR oval track and infield road course south of Miami, Fla.

Two new drivers will share the team's #48 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged in the 2.5-race, the second round of the Grand American Racing Koni Challenge series.

Sean Israel, age 21, of Suwanee, Ga., is one of the leading young drivers in North America. Starting his racing career at age 12 years, Sean has since recorded top-three finishes in IMSA Lites, Formula Ford Formula Continental racing.

Sean has been a test driver and driving instructor for the Panoz High Performance Racing School, Audi Racing Experience, and Saab Aero Academy. Additional race car mechanical experience has sharpened his awareness of car set-up.

Sean's co-driver will be Kevin Molloy, age 36, of West Palm Beach, Fla. Molloy's strong driving during the 2005 and 2006 seasons resulted in several championship titles which included the 2005 PBOC R-8 Championship, the 2005-06 SCCA T-2 Florida Region Championships, and the 2006 SEDIV SARRC Invitational Winner.

"I am very excited to have these two talented drivers join our team," said Tom Lepper, driver and co-owner of Team Cobalt California. "They should make Homestead a thrilling race that will hopefully end with our cars in the top three."
