"We are very excited about our association with Baca and Windham Motorsports. We have supported the Top Fuel team in the past but are now taking our marketing partnership to the next level. In racing, what really counts is crossing the line first and getting the win.

David Baca has the heart of a champion and I look forward to him showing everyone out there that he is going to be a real contender this year. I think this partnership will also allow the world to see that Mach 1 and Baca and Windham Motorsports are the upcoming teams to keep on eye on in their respective fields."

Baca and Windham Motorsports, an alliance that was formed in January by team owners David Baca and Bill Windham, fields a two-car team. Baca drives the team's Top Fuel dragster in the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series and Joe Windham, Bill's brother, drives the Big O Tires A/Fuel dragster in the Top Alcohol Dragster category in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. Baca advanced to the final round at the recently completed season-opening CARQUEST Auto Parts Winternationals in Pomona, Calif., before finishing runner-up and going into this weekend's event is No. 2 in the NHRA POWERade Top Fuel point standings.

Speaking for Baca and Windham Motorsports, Baca said, "My Top Fuel team has been associated with Mach 1 since last year and are both pleased and proud to have them show their confidence and continued support by increasing their participating to allow not only the Top Fuel team, but the entire Baca and Windham Motorsports program, to compete at the highest level. As a company, Mach 1 and Mike Entzminger are first rate and first class and we look forward to representing them in the backyard of their corporate headquarters at the Checker Schuck's Kragen Nationals in Phoenix this weekend and throughout 2006."
