Boris Said to Drive Fourth Gillett Evernham Motorsports Entry at New Hampshire

STATESVILLE, N.C. (September 10, 2007) -- Gillett Evernham Motorsports announced today that Boris Said will be behind the wheel of a fourth Nextel Cup entry this weekend at New Hampshire International Speedway. Said will be running the No. 98 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Avenger in what would be his first Nextel Cup start on an intermediate track since 2005.

Gillett Evernham Motorsports has built a successful relationship with Said in the Busch Series over the past two seasons resulting in a pole, a second-place finish, two top fives and 31 laps led in nine starts. The No. 10 Avenger of Scott Riggs will be running its Stanley Tools primary paint scheme at New Hampshire as Gillett Evernham Motorsports' three fulltime teams including, Elliott Sadler and Kasey Kahne, will remain unchanged.

"Fielding the No. 98 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge Avenger at New Hampshire this weekend is the start of some additional research and development Gillett Evernham Motorsports will be doing with the COT heading into the 2008 season," said Ray Evernham. "This is also an excellent opportunity to get Boris (Said) some seat time at a Nextel Cup race considering all he has done for our Busch and road course programs over the last two seasons."
