Ventura, California (August 28, 2006) -- Pacific Coast Motorsports today announced that due to unforeseen commitments in his schedule A.J. Allmendinger will no longer be able to co-drive the team's #89 Playboy/Vonage/Palms Pontiac Riley Daytona Prototype in the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series season-ending 'Discount Tire Sunchaser' event on Saturday 2nd September.

Allmendinger's deal to contest the final round of the 2006 Rolex Sports Car Series with Pacific Coast Motorsports had been signed prior to his switch to Forsythe Racing in the Champ Car World Series where he has subsequently scored four wins to move into title contention, his recent successes creating a more demanding schedule for the 24-year-old Californian.

As a result of this Pacific Coast Motorsports and Allmendinger have mutually agreed to terminate their deal in order to allow him to fulfill those commitments while giving the team an opportunity to evaluate other drivers to fill the third seat alongside PCM regular drivers Alex Figge and Ryan Dalziel for the nine-hour race at Miller Motorsports Park.

An announcement is expected to be made shortly regarding the line-up for the #89 Playboy/Vonage/Palms Pontiac Riley Daytona Prototype for this event.
