TULSA, Okla. (April 7, 2004) -- With the O'Reilly American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores and United Trailers in its thirteenth year of racing action, COMP Cams will once again sponsor the ASCS Newcomer of the Year award.

The COMP Cams Newcomer of the Year award, presented at season's end to an ASCS newcomer with a promising future, will be worth $1,000 to the recipient. Oklahoma City's Jimmy Taylor took to the ASCS trail for the first time in 2003 and won last year's COMP Cams Newcomer of the Year award, with other past winners including Darren Stewart (2002), Rick Behr (2001) and Foster Landon (2000).

In addition to sponsoring the COMP Cams Newcomer of the Year award, COMP Cams will award $100 at each O'Reilly ASCS main event during 2004 to the top finisher displaying the appropriate COMP Cams decals. An additional $50 will be awarded to the next two top finishing member drivers displaying COMP Cams Valve Springs and COMP Cams Rocker Arm decals as well.

Based in Memphis, TN, COMP Cams has provided the highest performance camshafts and valve train products for racing and street engines since 1977.
