BALTIMORE, Md. (August 7, 2006) -- CitiFinancial Racing announced today that they will sponsor Marc Goossens in his NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series debut this weekend at Watkins Glen International.

"Marc did a great job for us in Mexico," said Doug Yates. "We feel like he adds a lot of depth to our road course program. He tested for us at VIR last week to prepare for this weekends race and did very well. We have high expectations for all of our teams this weekend."

Goossens, who has been road course racing for more than 10 years, has competed in the Rolex 24 hours of Daytona and the 12 hours of Sebring.

"I've been to Watkins Glen in the Grand Am Series andI'm looking forward to returning to a track that I have some experience on," said Goossens. "Hopefully my experience will help us get CitiFinancial a great finish."
