BAM RACING ANNOUNCES FULL-TIME DRIVER CHANGE FOR REMAINDER OF SEASON

John Andretti to drive for No. 49 team effective at Michigan International Speedway

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (August 13, 2007) -- In an ongoing effort to increase the competitive level of the No. 49 team, BAM Racing announced today that John Andretti will drive the Paralyzed Veterans Dodge for the remainder of the 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series season beginning at Michigan International Speedway.

Andretti has two wins, 13 top-five and 37 top-10 finishes along with four pole positions in series competition. Throughout his Cup Series career, he has an average starting position of 22.3 and an average finish of 24.3.

"We have made significant changes across the board in the past weeks to improve our overall program," said team owner Beth Ann Morgenthau." With the pressures of qualifying on time, and our commitment to our sponsors, we felt that an immediate change was necessary. We have every confidence in the team we have assembled and are committed to racing each and every week."

John Andretti on Michigan International Speedway: "There is tons of room to race at Michigan International Speedway. The groove is basically the white line to within an inch of the wall depending on what the car will take. It's sort of like racing on dirt in the old days. If something is not working, you can move around."
