Management Shift At Red Horse Racing
DeLoach leads team into 2006 season

MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- Tom DeLoach has taken over the day-to-day management duties of Red Horse Racing LLC, effective immediately, the team announced today. David Starr drives the #38 Toyota Tundra on the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for Red Horse.

DeLoach, majority owner of the team, takes over from general manager Marty Gaunt, who will remain an owner as he pursues other opportunities within the sport. Jeff Hammond is also an owner of the team.

"An opportunity presented itself to Marty but, while his input and consultation will remain valuable to us, makes it impossible for him to be our general manager as well," DeLoach said. "We will certainly continue to rely on him but we needed someone who could devote all of their time to running the day-to-day operations."

DeLoach came to motorsports from the Mobil Oil Corporation, where he was Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, and later President of Global Midstream, which included global hydrocarbon supply and trading, marine operations, and worldwide natural gas sales and marketing. Worldwide coordinator of Mobil's motorsports operations, DeLoach gained a unique knowledge of the racing world and gained insight into NASCAR racing.

Hammond has been in motorsports his entire adult life. Starting as a tire changer for an independent team in 1974, Hammond became crew chief for Junior Johnson racing in 1982 and won two NASCAR Nextel Cup championships with Darrell Waltrip and 43 Cup races, and has participated in six Cup championship teams. He is currently a lead television analyst for FOX Sports, FX and SPEED channel.

DeLoach and Hammond own and operate PIT Instruction and Training LLC, the number one pit crew training center in the world.
