Ruhlman and Dallenbach to drive the #40 Preformed Line Products Daytona Prototype for Derhaag Motorsports at Watkins Glen
Shakopee, MN (Aug. 8, 2006) -- Derhaag Motorsports announced the driver line-up of the #40 Preformed Line Products Daytona Prototype for this weekend's Grand American Rolex Cup race, The Royal Crown 200 At The Glen. Long-time team driver Randy Ruhlman will be joined by veteran Paul Dallenbach for the 200-mile, two hour race on the 2.45-mile short course track at Watkins Glen, part of the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup weekend at Watkins Glen, New York.
"We are pleased to have such a great driver line-up for Watkins Glen with Randy and Paul at the wheel of the #40 Daytona Prototype," says team owner Jim Derhaag. "Paul will be a good addition to the team. He has excellent driving skills and car control, as well as a reputation for keeping the car in one piece. We've always had that kind of speed and heads-up driving with Randy at the helm, and we're lucky to be able to have Paul come in and complement that. We had a good setup last time we were at Watkins, so we're really looking forward to getting the car out on the track in the dry and seeing what it can do. It will be nice to work together with these two experienced drivers to help get the #40 car back up into the top ten where it should be."
