MARION, Illinois (April 26, 2007) - - Coming off a career-best weekend at Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana, last Sunday ARCA RE/MAX Series Rookie-of-the-Year leader Phillip McGilton heads to Kansas Speedway, the site of his first ever top-10 finish in the ARCA RE/MAX Series (ARS) with momentum and a new sponsor.

Montgomery Equipment Company, Inc. and Midwest Equipment Inc., have partnered up to become the primary sponsor of McGilton and the No. 47 Ford Fusion for the remaining 19 ARCA events of the season. McGilton's ARS entry will be referred to as the No. 47 Montgomery Equipment Ford Fusion.

"This is a really exciting opportunity for myself, Montgomery Equipment, and Brewco Motorsports. With the help of Montgomery Equipment, we will be able to do more testing to make a serious run for the championship. Now we feel like we don't have to hold anything back," exclaimed McGilton.

This is a different approach for us, and we are excited to become a part of his team this season, and hope to help continue our support throughout his racing career," explained the owner of Montgomery Equipment.
