Canadian John Graham Finishes 29th in Richmond Race

Highpoint, NC: Canadian race driver, John Graham, finished the NASCAR Busch Race - The Emerson Radio 250 - at Richmond, Virginia in 29th place last night. Graham, who is preparing for a full season in the challenging 2005 NASCAR Busch Series, finished ahead of some well established NASCAR Nextel Cup regulars including Michael Waltrip, Casey Mears and Kenny Wallace.

Waltrip and Graham made contact early in the race forcing an unscheduled pit stop to repair the damage. Strong pit stops on the #72 Chevrolet by the MacDonald Motorsport Team allowed Graham to stay in the running and to take the checkered flag at the finish of the 250-lap race.

Graham, who lives just north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is one of the very few Canadians to have ever competed at any level of the NASCAR Series. His extensive international motorsport background - which includes racing several times in the 24 Hours of LeMans race in France, twice in the gruelling Paris-Dakar Rally and strong finishes in many other open and closed wheel type racing cars in North America, Europe and Asia - have brought him to his ultimate goal of racing competitively in the challenging and hugely popular NASCAR Busch Series program.

Graham and the AURORA INVENTIVE team intend to compete in the NASCAR Busch races remaining in the 2004 season with a strong, full-time effort already in place for the full 2005 season.
