SFR Ready to be Back on Track at Texas Motor Speedway Saturday for the Firestone 550K

INDIANAPOLIS (June 1, 2010)- Sarah Fisher Racing (SFR) drivers, Sarah Fisher and Jay Howard, will return to their cockpits this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) for the Firestone 550K. Team owner/driver, Sarah Fisher, will be making her 11th start on the 1.5-mile banked oval, while teammate Jay Howard will be making his first career start at TMS. The race takes place at the quad-oval TMS track in Denton County, Texas.

This race carries significance with it for Fisher, as she began her IZOD IndyCar Series career at TMS in 1999. Fisher made her first start at the speedway, in the northern part of Fort Worth, Texas, as a team owner just last year.

"I'm really looking forward to being back on track at TMS this weekend," said Fisher. "It's always a great venue for our series, and it's extra special for me because it's where I started my IndyCar career. The SFR team has been working extremely hard and I'm hopeful for a good finish for the Dollar General car Saturday night."

The SFR No. 66 Service Central sponsored car, driven by Jay Howard, will be joining the SFR No. 67 Dollar General machine, driven by Fisher, on track at TMS. This race will mark Howard's second start of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season, after competing at Kansas Speedway in early May.

"I am very ready and fired up for Texas, said Howard. "I want to put Indianapolis behind me and move forward. May was a long month and I want to give Service Central a great finish this weekend."
