SUWANNE, Ga. (May 2, 2001) - Royal Wire Products, a manufacturer of air pollution control equipment and equine wire products, has inked a marketing agreement for three races with Team Clean Motorsports and driver David Elliott.

Royal Wire Products has been shipping quality wire products all over the world for more than 40 years. Headquartered in North Royalton (OH), with a second state of the art facility in Charlotte (NC), Royal Wire was one of the first companies to manufactur e Air Pollution Bag Cages and is today one of the world leaders in the air pollution industry.

"We signed on with Team Clean Motorsports to explore a different avenue in the racing community" said Vice President of Royal Wire Products Brent Peshina. "National television coverage will be beneficial in spreading the word on our many products and our n ew web page www.royalwire.com to vast audiences. Seeing our logo on the number 87 car is a dream come true for Royal Wire Products Inc., but most importantly, we are looking forward to the opportunity of meeting and getting to know fellow race fans."

Royal Wire was to join Ultrapure Technology as the primary-marketing partners for races in Montgomery, Charlotte and Toledo, but the team will now miss the Montgomery event.

David Elliott, driver of the number 87 Team Clean Motorsports ASA Chevy Monte Carlo, was injured recently in a four-wheeler accident while vacationing in the North Georgia Mountains. Elliott sustained a cracked rib and a partial collapsed lung when a four- wheeler he was driving failed to negotiate a turn on mountain roads and careened off the side.

Dennis Lane, owner of Team Clean, announced the cancellation of the team's entry into the ACTIONLINE 300 at Montgomery (AL) due to Elliott's injuries, but said the team will return for the following ASA event at Concord (NC).

Although disappointed in the delay of the first event, marketing partners Ultrapure Technology and Royal Wire Products Inc. are supportive of the team's decision not to attempt a run at Montgomery and are relieved to know Elliott's condition is temporary a nd look forward to his return at Concord.

Team Clean will add an additional race to its schedule at a later date to replace the Montgomery event.
