Salem, Ind. (May 21, 2002) -- Great Deals Of Indiana has signed to be the Major Sponsor of Rick Turner Racing for the Sunoco Super Series events they will compete in during the 2002 race season. Better known as the Y-Town Hustler, team owner and driver Rick Turner plans to compete in the majority of the remaining events on the 2002 Sunoco Super Series schedule, including this Sunday's Sunoco 100 Presented by Budweiser at Toledo Speedway.

"We are really excited about having Great Deals of Indiana as our major sponsor," remarked Turner. " Without this deal, we would have only raced in a hand full of Sunoco Super Series events this year. With the support of Great Deals of Indiana, we have greatly expanded our 2002 Sunoco Super Series plans. We hope to build the relationship with Great Deals of Indiana and our team to be able to compete for the series championship in the future!"

In production since 1995, Great Deals of Indiana is a 16 page, High Gloss, perforated, full color direct mail advertising magazine.

"We sponsored Rick Turner in the mid 80's with the WAXT 97 car," commented Mougeotte. "We ran several events on the local tracks, as well as several big races on tracks through out the Mid-west. This new sponsorship agreement brings us back together for this season and we are planning, over the next 2 to 3 years, to build a team that will be a major competitor in the Sunoco Super Series. Great Deals and the Y-Town Hustler are back, everyone will feel the thunder of Great Deals Racing!"
