MARLIN CONTINUES SUCCESSFUL TEST SESSION AT DAYTONA

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2006)-- Sterling Marlin's success at Daytona 500 testing continued Tuesday as he found himself ranking sixth-fastest during the morning practice session and seventh in the afternoon.

"We had another good day," said Marlin, who posted the fastest overall speed on Monday. "It just shows how good the guys in the shop are putting stuff together. We've been at the top of the speed charts consistently over the last two days-- not just the No. 14 car, but Joe's (Nemechek) too."

Marlin and Nemechek have both ranked in the top 10 during all four of Monday and Tuesday's practices.

"We've got fast cars and if I can drive good and not make any mistakes we'll be okay," continued Marlin. "I'm confident we can win a race this year and Daytona seems like a good place to start."

Wednesday will be the final day of the three-day test and will be used by most teams to practice drafting.
