SUSSEX, Wis. (February 28, 2001) - Mark Dismore, Jr. won't be panning for gold, but he hopes to find it when he heads to Irwindale Speedway for the ASA ACDelco Series' running of the tires.com 300 presented by BFGoodrich Tires. Dismore, Jr. and the rest of the ASA competitors will compete in the state of California for the first time on March 10, when they arrive at the half-mile facility east of Los Angeles.

Dismore, Jr. finished seventh at the ASA Series season opener and wants to keep up the momentum heading into the second race of the year. "After a good run at St. Augustine (Speedway), I'm looking forward to racing at Irwindale," said Dismore, Jr. "We weren't able to test out there because of the logistics, but Howie (Lettow, crew chief) has been contacting those he knows out West to try to get some ideas on the setup. Whatever he finds out, I'm sure the WOWemployers.com Chevrolet will be good and we'll be competitive."

Howie Lettow, crew chief for the No. 22 Herzog Motorsports entry, has collected some notes from his contacts and what he hasn't been able to find out will be a guessing game for the team. "From what I've been able to learn, the racing groove is the high line around the track," Lettow states. "Since you will have to pass underneath, the trick is to get the car to work well on the bottom. I think we've got a good shock and spring setup put together, then we'll just guess on the rest until we're able to practice."

"The goal is to win the race, of course," continues Dismore, Jr., "but if we can run in the top-five, stay out of trouble and come out of Irwindale in the top-five in points, that would be satisfying for the WOWemployers.com team."
