STREMME TO PULL DOUBLE DUTY AT MIS

Nextel Cup Rookie Will Pilot RWI Racing's No. 61 Hantz Group -- Nu South Lemonade Dodge Friday's ARCA RE/MAX Series Race

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (June 12, 2006) -- Nextel Cup rookie David Stremme will compete for the second straight weekend in both the NASCAR Nextel Cup and ARCA RE/MAX Series races. Stremme, who drives the No. 40 Coors Light/Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon Dodge in NASCAR's Premier Series, will also drive RWI Racing's No. 61 Hantz Group -- Nu South Lemonade Dodge in the ARCA RE/MAX race at Michigan International Speedway.

"Racing is racing," Stremme said during an ARCA test at MIS. "I am a racer and anytime I can get behind the wheel and compete I'm all for it. Rusty (Wallace, car owner) has great equipment and I am excited to get the chance to race for fun. I'm looking forward to hopefully pulling off a win in Michigan."

Steven Wallace usually drives the No. 61 Hantz Group -- Nu South Lemonade Dodge, however scheduling conflicts made a fill-in driver necessary. "Stremme was the obvious choice," said Rusty Wallace. "With Steve racing in Kentucky we needed a fill-in, David Stremme was first on our list. The kid is a racer and I knew he'd be great. He has a lot of talent and I am expecting a win in Michigan."

"We are extremely excited about having David step in for Steve this weekend for the Hantz Group 200 at Michigan International Speedway," said Aaron Thierry, Vice President of Hantz Group Racing. "Rusty (Wallace, team owner) and his organization do a great job of understanding our needs and making sure they exceed them. We are proud to be a part of their ARCA RE/MAX program and look forward to much success in Michigan."
