TIM FEDEWA WATKINS GLEN INTERNATIONAL JUNE 27, 1999

Fedewa travels to the home track of his car owners Frank Cicci and Scott Welliver for a road course adventure. Cicci and Welliver are very prominent names in the Finger Lakes area. Welliver with his brother, Jeff, have built one of the largest construction companies in upstate New York, Welliver McGuire Inc. Welliver also owns and operates the very successful vineyard known as Glenora Wine Cellars located in the finger lakes region of New York. Cicci, also a local businessman, spends time between Charlotte, N.C., and Elmira running both Cicci-Welliver Racing and his Quick Stop Beverages stores.

Fedewa is looking forward to the 2.45-mile road course this year after picking up a top-10 finish in this event last season. Fedewa also comes off a very exciting race at South Boston Speedway where he brought the No. 36 Stanley Racing Machine home in fifth position.

"I wish that we raced on more than one road course track a year," said Fedewa. "The racing is fun and by the time you are totally up to speed with the road course racing it is the end of the weekend and you won't be back for another year. With all of Frank and Scott's friends here this weekend we would like to have all three cars run up front and do well."

The No. 36 Stanley Racing Machine that Cicci-Welliver Racing will unload at Watkins Glen International is the same car that Fedewa has had three top-10 finishes so far in 1999. Fedewa last drove this car to a ninth-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway. The car has undergone some changes to prepare for the left and right turns of the road course at Watkins Glen International.

*Fedewa will sign autographs at the fourth annual "NASCAR Night in the Heights" located in downtown Elmira on Thursday, June 24, from 6-8 p.m.

*Fedewa will sign autographs at Watkins Glen International under the red/white/blue grandstands on Saturday, June 26, from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
