Career at Atlanta Motor Speedway:
Deborah will be making her second career start at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Earlier this spring, Deborah made her first appearance at the 1.54-mile quad-oval track and came away with a disappointing 25th place finish.

Deborah On Atlanta:

"Atlanta is a fast racetrack; I think it is the fastest track on the circuit. It is three-wide racing from the start to the finish. It is an exciting race for the fans as well as the competitors. We kept our nose clean in Atlanta in the spring but didn't really have the kind of finish that we wanted. It was our first time racing in Atlanta and I needed to get comfortable with the track. I know this BHR2 Heritage Dodge Race team has a great truck for us this weekend and I'm looking forward to heading there and improving on our finish."

Deborah On The 2005 Season:

"I've made some giant strides this season in the No. 8 BHR2 Dodge. We've aligned our team and have developed a great rapport and connection. Having that chemistry is really important in the building of the team. The crew led by Shawn Parker have put together some of the fastest trucks out on the track. Working with Bobby Hamilton has also has had a major impact on my driving. He'll be the first one to jump in the truck and take it around the track to let me know where I should be running, how the truck is handling and the adjustments I should be looking at. My skills have improved week in and week out and I plan on hitting these last four races running hard building momentum for 2006."

Deborah discusses her big screen debut:

"I am so flattered by the attention I am getting from being on the Herbie Fully Loaded DVD. It was so much fun to film and I am honored by being asked to be a part of the DVD. Being one of only two women racing fulltime in a NASCAR Series this year is an honor in its own right. I hope the segment will show young girls out there that if they have a dream to be a racecar driver to go for it and Dare to Dream."

Notes:

* Deborah will be making her 35th career start in the Craftsman Truck Series this week at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

* Deborah will be racing the truck nicknamed 'Butters' this weekend. This truck was last race out in Las Vegas and is also the truck that Deborah steered to her career best qualifying effort of 8th earlier this year in Nashville.
