BLYTHEWOOD, S.C. (June 30, 2002)--Round Eight of the Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship was a tough race for the Ohio born Andy Brumbaugh.

Starting eighth, Brumbaugh was involved in an incident early in the race. Driving the No. 86 EMX/Van Diemen, Brumbaugh was making a move on Mike Anderson in the esses, when he got pinched between Anderson and Bryan Sellers in turn 8. Sellers left Brumbaugh with nowhere to go and the two cars made contact. By the time Brumbaugh could rejoin the race he was in 18th place. Working hard, he managed to pick up two spots during the race, to finish 16th for the day.

"It was an unfortunate end to a good weekend," said Brumbaugh. "We were fast all weekend and knew I could have had a good showing, but I was left no room at the start. We go to VIR at the end of the month for a series test, but we will return to Mid-Ohio next month ready to mount the podium."

"I can't wait for the next race," said AIM Autosport team owner/engineer Ian Willis. "I know we are better than we showed here."

Brumbaugh's teammate, Mark Wilkins, finished 11th on the day.
