HOLMES TO DRIVE FOR SUPERIOR CRANKSHAFT

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA (September 17, 2010) -- Two-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Eric Holmes will be drive the Bammer Motorsports #88 entry, sponsored by Superior Crankshaft, in the final three SRL SPEARS Southwest Tour points races of 2010 the team announced today.

Holmes will take over the driving duties from 25 year-old Kyle Cattanach of Redding, Calif. Cattanach drove the Bammer Motorsports #88 car into the top-five in the series points this year in his first full season in a Southwest Tour car.

"We are disappointed that Kyle has left the team, it was shocking to all involved however we understand that he needs a break from racing," Motorsports Marketing Manager Marty Melo said. "We are moving forward with a driver search process for the 2011 season and we can't thank Eric Holmes enough for stepping into the seat for the final races of the season."

Holmes has been running a limited schedule of SRL SPEARS Southwest Tour races while also leading the 2010 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West behind the wheel of the Bill McAnally-owned NAPA #20 TOYOTA Camry.

He will begin his run with Superior Crankshaft and Bammer Motorsports at Madera Speedway. Holmes has many laps around the speedway in the NASCAR Southwest Tour and K&N Pro Series competition, making him a prime candidate to give Superior Crankshaft their first win.

The season will continue with return trips to Roseville on October 16 and Las Vegas on October 30. Holmes will be busy competing in both the SRL and NASCAR West Series portions of the program on the October 16 weekend.
