Montgomery ready for Atlanta

LEBANON, TN (March 6, 2003) - ARCA RE/MAX driver Chase Montgomery is carrying a lot of momentum going into Saturday's Atlanta ARCA 400.

Not only is the 19-year-old leading the ARCA driver points standings, he is also fresh off of his victory at the Advanced Auto Parts 200 at Daytona International Speedway.

"The win at Daytona was amazing," Montgomery said. "That was my first professional victory and now I'm ready for more."

The #27 Alice Cooper/Montgomery Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo pilot is looking to turn his luck around on the 1.54-mile oval of Atlanta this weekend. In his two previous outings, he experienced engine failure and a broken rear-end.

"We tested pretty well here earlier this year, but there were some changes that we needed to make us competitive for this weekend," Montgomery said. " We've had some problems here in the past, but this crew has put together a great car for me and we think we've got a great shot at winning this time around."

Qualifying for the Atlanta ARCA 400 will be Friday at 1:30 PM, with the race starting at 1:00 PM ET on Saturday. The event will be broadcast live on both SPEED Channel and Performance Racing Network (PRN) Radio. Updates on Montgomery and the entire Alice Cooper/Montgomery Racing team can be found at www.montgomerymotorsports.com.
