SAN DIEGO, Calif. October 24, 2006 - All German Motorsports (AGM) will team with famed racing talents Boris Said and Armin Schwarz in pursuit of the overall win at the 32nd running of the Tecate Score Baja 1000 to be held November 15 through 18, 2006. AGM is currently in 4th point position and within striking distance of the Class 1 series point championship.

Said and Schwarz join past Baja 1000 winners Martin Christensen, 38, Escondido, CA, and Dave Mason, 44, Valley Center, CA, in entering two cars for this year's 1000 mile off road race from Ensenada to La Paz. AGM will be running in the SCORE unlimited buggy classification (Class 1) with both a 2005 Jimco / BMW M5 and a 2006 Jimco / Chevrolet LS6.

"We are very excited about the incredible range of driving skills that Said and Schwarz will bring to the team," says driver and co- owner of AGM, Martin Christensen. "The combination of racing talents, our extensive Baja experience and a dedicated team of 40 volunteers will provide a level of ability normally afforded to only the most generously sponsored teams," Christensen continues.

Boris Said, 44, Carlsbad, CA, is considered to be one of the most versatile of all active drivers and a veteran of a number of open and closed wheel racing circuits, including SCCA, IMSA, CART and NASCAR. He has recorded wins in the endurance events at Daytona, Sebring, and the Nurburgring and was the only American ever to do so. His current success has been as the co-owner and driver of the Nextel Cup #60 No Fear Ford, which scored the pole at this year's Pepsi 400 at Daytona. Prior to that, he was known for his outstanding road course skills while piloting a number of Nextel Cup cars and Craftsman trucks.

Armin Schwarz, 44, Monte Carlo, Monaco is a World Rally Championship (WRC) driver for driving factory Skoda Fabia. Throughout his 20 year professional race career, Armin has won numerous World Championships. Armin will be racing the new AGM Chevrolet car in this year's 2006 SCORE International Baja 1000, his first ever in the SCORE series. Armin has been rallying throughout the world for more than 20 years and has been a sponsored professionally since the mid- eighties.

AGM's BMW entry has been strengthened by a technology sponsorship from Dinan Cars, Inc. with the addition of a professionally worked M5 powerplant, which has been matched to the chassis and transmission for optimal efficiency adding 100 horse power -- and high reliability. The Chevrolet powered car owned by Bret Hartman of BA Motorsports -- was purposely built for this 1000 mile race, and will provide a worthy challenger to the older BMW.

All German Motorsports is a privateer organization without a title sponsor for the Baja 1000, the toughest of all motor races. The team of 40 volunteers and personal chase vehicles regularly challenges the most well equipped professional teams for the overall podium positions. The management of All German Motorsports is now actively seeking a title sponsor for the 2006 Baja 1000, and extending into the races of the 2007 SCORE International season.
