Zach Taylor Ready For IRP Event With Purdue College of Engineering On The Car And At The Track

June 14, 2006 - The Opportunity Motorsports/Circle Bound Racing number 14 car will hit the track again this weekend, when the series returns to Indiana after a couple weekends out of state. The famed Indianapolis Raceway Park will host the CRA Super Series Wastequip/Galbreath 100 in conjunction with the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Aaron's 212 this Saturday, June 17th. Nashville hot-shoe Zach Taylor will again be piloting the Chet Blanton owned Purdue College of Engineering/ARC Racing Engines/ARP Stock Car Bodies machine.

In 2006, Taylor's first trips to race tracks have proven fruitful. With a 4th place finish at Winchester Speedway and a hard-earned 6th place effort at Baer Field, a track to which his first reaction was "I hate flat tracks", the OM team is confident in another great run at IRP. After a very successful test at the .686 mile facility last Friday, the team feels that it will be a force to be reckoned with, and may surprise some of the more well known series invaders.

On the other side of the grandstands, the Purdue College of Engineering will again be hosting "Start your Engines with Purdue", an interactive display featuring staff of the College of Engineering and information regarding the various engineering degrees and Motorsports programs at Purdue University. Also, come see the number 14 car up close and personal as it will be on display in the Purdue area, and try your hand at the Purdue Pit-Stop Competition, brought to you by the Indy United Racing League (www.indyurl.com). The fastest times will receive great prizes.

The Opportunity Motorsports crew look forward to a successful weekend on both sides of the fence, and invite you to come join us this Saturday June 17th, gates open at 3:00pm, racing gets under way at 7:00pm.
