ENDERS CONTINUES TO SETTLE IN AT DON SCHUMACHER RACING

KENT, Wash. (July 19, 2006) - Pro Stock pilot Erica Enders hopes her transition to Don Schumacher Racing continues its seamless progression this weekend at Pacific Raceways for the Schuck's Auto Supply NHRA Nationals.

Last weekend at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway, she made her debut in the Team Schumacher Dodge Stratus R/T without any testing in that particular car and qualified No. 13, then lost a tough first round of eliminations against Ron Krisher.

"I'm excited to get back into the car now that I am more familiar with it," said the Houston native. "It will take a little bit of stress off of me for the weekend. Before, I had no idea what to expect, but Shaun (Carlson, teammate and driver of the Team Mopar/SRT Dodge Stratus) and everybody at DSR made the transition really smooth last weekend."

This will be Enders' second trip to Pacific Raceways as a professional NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series driver."Last year (as a rookie) was the first time I raced here," she said. "We never came up here and raced before (as a Sportsman driver) because it is so far from Texas, but it's a cool stop on the Western Swing. I'm hoping to do a little better than last year (No. 16 qualifier) and not have a first-round exit."
