SHEPHERD TO PULL DOUBLE DUTY IN NASHVILLE

CONCORD, N.C. (August 9, 2006) - Peter Shepherd will be pulling double duty this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway. Shepherd will compete Saturday in both the ARCA/REMAX Series race in the No. 39 Ford Taurus and in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race in the No. 50 Ford 150. Headz Gamez will be the primary sponsor in both of Shepherds races.

Roush Racing has teamed up with the Roulo brothers to field Shepherd in his second ARCA Series race. The pairing proved successful in St. Louis where Shepherd finished fourth in his first career start. Shepherd can apply the experience he gains in the race to his second NASCAR Craftsman Truck series race which will take place upon conclusion of the ARCA Race. His first Truck Series start came just a few weeks ago at Memphis, where he earned a solid 23rd place finish.

"It's going to be a very busy weekend for me as I am racing in both the ARCA and truck race. I've never raced at Nashville before, so it will be a new experience for me. Luckily I've got teammates here to help me should I need it, both Erik and David have ran well here in the past. Memphis was a great learning experience for me, figuring out how the trucks handle and what the adjustments will do for them. Speedways are obviously much different, but I feel like I can apply what I've learned so far and that should help. My goal for the weekend is to complete all the laps and bring the Headz Gamez Ford F-150 home in one piece. If I can do that, I'll be happy with the weekend."
