Coggins, Pagano Set to Get Things Rolling on Sunday

Nazareth, PA (May 20, 2004) - Dennis Coggins, Vice President of Sales at ITT Industries Water Technology and Robert Pagano, President of ITT Industrial Products Group will serve as the honorary officials for Sunday's Goulds Pumps ITT Industries 200 NASCAR Busch Series race at Nazareth Speedway. Coggins, as Grand Marshal, will utter the most famous words in motorsports, "Drivers, start your engines", while Pagano will wave the green flag as Honorary Starter.

"We are pleased to welcome Dennis and Bob to Nazareth Speedway to fill two key roles this weekend," said Nazareth Speedway President Craig Rust. "Goulds Pumps and ITT Industries have been outstanding partners for the past two years. We're looking forward to a terrific weekend of racing and I'm happy that they will be here to share it with us."

Coggins joined Goulds Pumps in 1972 and has been involved in the NASCAR Busch Series since 1994, when the company entered the ranks as a sponsor of the No. 34 entry. As VP of Sales, Coggins is responsible for sales of residential, commercial and agricultural water and wastewater pumps throughout North and South America.

Pagano was appointed to his current role in 2002 and first joined Goulds Pumps in 1988. Throughout his career with Goulds, he has held positions that include Controller of Seneca Falls Operations, Group controller for Industrial Products Group and Vice President of Finance and Controller for the FTC Management Team.

"It is with mixed emotions that I preside as Honorary Starter for the final NASCAR racing event at Nazareth," Pagano said. "Just as Goulds Pumps boasts a long storied history in the pump field, Nazareth Speedway has brought over eighty years of racing enjoyment to Lehigh Valley fans. As a sponsoring partner, and on behalf of Goulds employees, distributors and customers worldwide, I salute the Speedway's many contributions to racing by dropping the flag for the Goulds Pumps ITT Industries 200."

Pre-race ceremonies will be live on FX starting at 12:30 PM -- however seeing is believing. Tickets are still available for the FINAL Goulds Pumps ITT Industries 200, NASCAR Busch Series and the Service Electric 100, NASCAR Featherlite Modified races and can be purchased at any Wegmans food store, at the Speedway ticket office, online at www.nazarethspeedway.com, or by calling 888-629-RACE.
