WESTERMAN COMPANIES ON BOARD KEY MOTORSPORTS NO. 40 AT ORP THIS WEEKEND

July 21, 2010 (Mooresville, NC) Mike Bliss straps into a newly constructed No. 40 Key Motorsports Chevrolet this weekend, completely decked out in the colors of long-time sponsor Westerman Companies, at O'Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis. Out on the town in a new ride, Bliss will be shopping for a good finish in Saturday night's Kroger 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series event.

The Key Motorsports team has put forth a tremendous amount of effort in the preparation of the car Bliss will pilot at ORP. Headquartered in Mooresville, North Carolina, the Key Motorsports facility has been the center of activity as team members, led by veteran crew chief Gary Showalter, continue to roll out capable equipment.

"We are ready for 200 laps at ORP," an enthusiastic Showalter said. "We have a good car for Mike and a motor I am confident in. We have learned what Mike likes and ORP is a track that we have done well at so hopefully we will do a good job for Westerman Saturday night. Westerman is an excellent partner and we appreciate them being on board."

WELCOME BACK - Team owner Curtis Key, along with the entire Key Motorsports organization, welcomes Westerman Companies back to the No. 40 for the trip to the Hoosier State. "We want to thank Westerman Companies for their continued support of Key Motorsports," said Key. "The guys on the team have done well in preparing for this race and we all are looking forward to the Westerman Companies Chevrolet having a good race at O'Reilly Raceway Park."

PREVIOUS VISIT - Key Motorsports finished 14th, on the lead lap, in the 2009 Kroger 200 with Aric Almirola behind the wheel. Using data collected from last year's outing at ORP coupled with input from driver Mike Bliss, an experienced short-tracker from the west coast, Key Motorsports expects an improved performance in 2010.
