David Murry Joins Mitchum for Watkins Glen
Mitchum Motorsports Looking to Carry Momentum from CT to NY

RICHMOND, VA (June 2, 2010) - The #62 Mitchum Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro, fresh off their best finish of the season at Lime Rock Park, is heading straight to Watkins Glen, NY for the next round of the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. Joining Joey Atterbury in the car this weekend will be GRAND-AM veteran David Murry.

Murry, winner of the 2008 GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Watkins Glen, is thrilled to be racing in the series once more and is looking forward to driving for Mitchum Motorsports again. "I have worked with Chris (team principle Chris Mitchum) before at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and was so impressed that I couldn't wait to work with him again. When Chris called and asked me to test with them at VIR, I instantly said yes", said Murry. "After the test days he invited me to race the Camaro at Watkins Glen. I am honored to be part of such a class operation."

Murry, filling in for Devin Cates who is finishing up end of year school commitments at James Madison University, will be joined by Mitchum Motorsports regular driver Joey Atterbury for the 2.5 hour race on June 5th. "When David tested with us at VIR earlier this year he was fast right out of the box. I am really excited about teaming up with him for the race at Watkins Glen and like our chances for another good finish this weekend", noted Atterbury.

Team principle Chris Mitchum echoed Murry's sentiments. "David is a true pro and a welcome addition to the team", said Mitchum. "David brings a ton of racing experience with him and the entire team is looking forward to working with him again."
