Talladega, AL (Wednesday, September 24th, 2003) - - Ohio's based Capital City Motorsports with veteran driver Greg Sarff feel that their best chance to win an ARCA RE/MAX Series event could come this weekend from the historic Talladega Superspeedway.

The team has purchased a brand new Ford Taurus from Roush Racing for the event and also will have a brand new engine package supplied by LED Engine Development for the weekend. Greg Sarff, who has missed the team's last two schedule events due to an injury preparing for Nashville will return to the cockpit this weekend.

"As a team, I don't think we've ever been this excited," said Sarff, who will pilot the No. 38 Quaker Steak & Lube sponsored machine. "We've got a brand new hotrod, and a spectacular engine program, we just need to stay clean, and be around when it counts the most," continued the former IMSA driver.

Since CCM (Capital City Motorsports) decided early in 2003 to scale back their operation from a full time schedule to a six-race stint, the results have been promising. The team has surpassed their qualifying runs from 2002 and the performances have been on the consistent level, leaving Sarff with a chance to win in each of the events he has competed in.

"Yeah, we've had some pretty solid finishes, but in racing, there's always room for improvement, and we're hoping that by the end of the day on Saturday, we'll be able to talk about some great things," stated the ARCA veteran.

Talladega Superspeedway located in Alabama will be the last scheduled event for Capital City Motorsports in 2003, and the team would like to go out with a bang. "All in All, It's been a successful year, but we're still eluding our first ARCA RE/MAX Series win, who knows it may come this weekend," continued the driver.

In addition to Quaker Steak & Lube sponsoring the Ford Taurus, the team is thrilled to have picked up several associate sponsors for the weekend.

Absolute Impressions, Finishing Touch Car Wash, and Front Row Sports Bar will all be on board this weekend. "Absolute Impressions has been on board with CCM for a long time, I'm honored that they've agreed to sponsor this race, and our for new associates sponsors, we're welcoming them with open arms, and hope we can give them a terrific finish this weekend," Sarff mentioned.

The team has also made a crew chief change for the weekend. ARCA RE/MAX Series veteran Tom Eriksen will call the shots for the team this weekend, while normal crew chief Jim Heiberger will work as the car chief on Saturday.

"We are all working together as a team this weekend, Tom and Jim are going to be working together, and I'm sure the results won't be anything less than what we're expecting."

The Food World 300 is scheduled for this Saturday from the 2.666-mile Superspeedway of Talladega Superspeedway. The SPEED Channel will have same-night coverage of the event at 1:00 AM (Sunday, September 28th, 2003) and also again at 4:00 PM EST Sunday on SPEED.
