Alton, Va (June 29, 2002)-- King Motorsports captured its second win of the season in the Grand-Am Cup Sport Touring race at the Virginia Festival of Speed at Virginia International Raceway. Mike Van Sicklen & Bob Endicott piloted #36 to victory in the 250-mile race, with car #0 of Jean-Francois Dumoulin and Charles Goldsborough taking second place. Salama/Patch took the last step of the podium.

Team Hyundai Motorsports and car #6 of Mark Craig & Jacques Guénette took the sixth spot on a total of 33 cars in the ST class. Car #14 of Peter MacLeod and Wade Gaughran retired on the 60th lap because of mechanical failure. They were running 5th prior to retirement.

Team Manager Ron Matthews commented:" We are satisfied with the results. We know we could have been on the podium if we didn't experienced early misfortune. We all know we can run as fast as anyone. We just need a little bit more adjustments and luck, then we'll be on the podium," concluded Matthews.

" This feels excellent," said Guénette, who was driving his first race at Hyundai Motorsports." The crew did a great job. They have been working very hard and I am happy to take a sixth place for them."

The Grand-Am Cup Street Stock Series will travel to Mid-Ohio, to compete in a three-hour race on Saturday, August 10th.
