Joey Scarallo Scores another Top Ten; Finishes Seventh at Toronto

TORONTO, Ontario (July 10, 2004) -- Joey Scarallo, driver of the No. 06 ROH Wheels/Group A Autotrend/Toyo Tires Chevrolet Corvette, finished seventh in today's Trans-Am in T.O., Round 5 of the Motorock Trans-Am Series, in Toronto. Scarallo finished just behind teammate John Baucom, driver of the No. 86 Ford Mustang.

"The first 10 laps were good," said Scarallo. "We had a tremendous start, passing my teammate, John Baucom, and Randy Ruhlman on the back straightaway. Everything was pointing to another top-five finish, but we're happy with seventh.

"We struggled all weekend with the setup. We weren't able to get a handle on the chassis and it cost us some horsepower," added Scarallo. "The Baucom crew worked hard, but it just didn't happen as we had hoped."

Scarallo teamed with Baucom Motorsports this year. Baucom Motorsports also fields the No. 86 Ford Mustang driven by owner/driver John Baucom. The Baucom crew is preparing Scarallo's car for the 2004 season.

"We have had a successful run here lately, but with four back-to-back races, it has been tough on everyone, especially the crew," said Scarallo. "There's no doubt I'll be back in the top five again. I still have to achieve my goal of a podium finish this year."
