Kevin is piloting his favorite race car, named 'Red Rock' after a championship rodeo bull, at Richmond this weekend. The last time Kevin drove Red Rock was at the Homestead Motorsports Complex in November where he captured his first career victory.

Kevin and the HYPE/Ridling Motorsports team is looking to change their racing luck in the 1997 season with a strong finish at the Richmond International Raceway. In both races this season, the No. 88 HYPE Chevrolet Monte Carlo was a contender for the win but was involved in no-fault accidents.

"All last season we competed with several good luck charms inside my car," explained Kevin. "I'm beginning to wonder if I 'used up' all the good luck in them. If our luck turns around, we know we will win some more races."

Kevin will be signing autographs at the Home Depot in Morrow, Georgia on March 6 from 6:00-8:00 pm. On March 7, Kevin will participate in the Festival of Lights Parade in Griffin, Georgia at 7:00 pm.

The Kevin Lepage Fan Club is still accepting members. The membership fee is $12 for the 1997 season and includes race updates and special merchandise discounts. For information call (704) 664-0225 or write 159 Bevan Dr, Mooresville, NC 28115
