AUBERLEN ROLLS INTO SEARS POINT
Lime Rock Winner Also Hopes to Repeat At Sears Point

INFINEON/SEARS POINT RACEWAY, Sonoma, CA - 07/13/2005 - Two weeks off a flag-to-flag win at Lime Rock Park, Bill Auberlen returns home to Sonoma, California for another round in the SPEED Touring Car Championship. Auberlen will be racing at Infineon/Sears Point Raceway in his H&R Springs/Turner Motorsport BMW 325i - the same car he won with two weeks ago at Lime Rock and won with in the 2004 Touring Car race at Infineon.

Auberlen is a native of California road courses with Touring Car wins at Infineon/Sears Point in 2003 and 2004 in Turner Motorsport BMWs. He is gunning for three wins in three years this weekend. Last year the Turner Motorsport BMWs brought home one win, a second, a third, a fourth, and a fifth place finish from two races at Sears Point. Having Auberlen tuning the car at his home track gives the Turner Motorsport team an edge but the contributions of H&R Springs, StopTech Brakes, B&M Racing, Borla Exhaust, Red Line Fluids, Sunoco Race Fuels, and Piloti Driving Shoes cannot be overlooked.

Bill Auberlen, pilot, #1 H&R Springs/Turner Motorsport BMW 325i:

"This track suits the BMWs very well. But the combination of H&R Springs, StopTech Brakes, Borla Exhaust, and a very nice chassis set up by Turner Motorsport I think will put us ahead of the other guys. It did at Lime Rock and we're looking for more of the same this weekend."

Practice gets underway throughout Friday. Qualifying is on Saturday morning at 9:00am (PT). The SPEED Channel will broadcast this race LIVE on Sunday at 3:00pm PT (6:00pm ET). A re-broadcast to this race will be on SPEED Channel on Monday, July 18 at 1:00pm (ET).
