Keyed-Up Motorsports in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Announces Scott Riggs to Drive in Phoenix and Texas for the No. 90 Chevy Impala; Riggs will fill the void in the driver's seat left by Mears

Mooresville, NC (March 29, 2010) - Keyed-Up Motorsports team owner Raymond Key announced that Scott Riggs will drive the #90 Keyed-Up Motorsports Chevrolet at Phoenix and Texas. "We are thrilled to have Scott in our car," Key said today.

Riggs, the current driver for the #09 RAB Racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, will make his 2010 Sprint Cup debut at Phoenix in the #90 Keyed-Up Motorsports Chevrolet Impala. His career Sprint Cup Series stats include 175 starts, 4 top 5's, 16 top 10's and 3 poles.

The team started the season with Casey Mears behind the wheel, but Mears' contract was for the first six races only, and he opted to be a back up driver for #11 Denny Hamlin while Hamlin recovers from ACL surgery.

"Casey is a great guy and did a good job for us," Key said. "Both parties fulfilled the 6-race deal and parted on good terms, we have even discussed the possibility of having Casey back later this year."

The team has qualified for only one (1) of the first six (6) races this season. Key added, "We had competitive speeds this year in qualifying attempts but the 'Top 35' rule has kept us from racing. We now look to Scott for his input on how we can succeed in getting into the top 35 in points with him behind the wheel."
