CJM Racing Names Paul Wolfe as the Crew Chief of the No. 11 America's Incredible Pizza Company Race Team

Mooresville, NC (October 29, 2008) - CJM Racing has signed Paul Wolfe as the new crew chief of the No. 11 America's Incredible Pizza Company race team with up-and-coming driver Scott Lagasse Jr. Wolfe, a former driver turned crew chief, will begin his new role at the close of the 2008 season.

Paul Wolfe comes to CJM Racing with a wealth of knowledge. Wolfe was a driver himself as he spent time in the NASCAR Camping World East Series and then the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In 2006 he found himself in a peculiar position, instead of driving race cars he positioned himself on top of the pit box calling the shots. The move from driver to crew chief was resounding. His knowledge of the cars and his mechanical background enabled him to relate to drivers on a different level. In his most recent role, Wolfe serves as the crew chief for Michael Waltrip development driver Josh Wise.

"Paul comes with high marks and a lot of respect in the garage area. We've gotten to know him and we're excited about him and the knowledge he brings to us," stated Tony Mullet co-owner of CJM Racing. "He is a great fit for the No. 11 program and for the organization as a whole."

In the interim, Mike Sibley will take on the role as the crew chief for the America's Incredible Pizza Company race team. Sibley has served as the crew chief for Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR Camping World East Series over the last two years with drivers Joey Logano and most recently Marc Davis. Sibley and Logano won the Camping World East Series championship in 2007.

With the Camping World East Series season coming to a close earlier this month, it opened up the door for Joe Gibbs Racing to help CJM Racing with their short-term needs. Joe Gibbs Racing and CJM Racing announced a new technical alliance mid-season with CJM switching to Toyota's in 2009. Sibley will serve as the crew chief until Paul Wolfe is able to make the transition over to the team later this year.
