DCG Racing, Flis Motorsports Join Efforts To Campaign Daytona Prototype

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (November 13, 2003) -- Doug Goad, President of DCG Racing of Farmington Hills, Mich., and Troy Flis, President of Flis Motorsports of Daytona Beach, Fla., announced today that they will combine their teams to run a Crawford-built Daytona Prototype in the 2004 Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series.

Operating under the name of The Spirit of Daytona, the team will be based out of the Flis Motorsports shop in Daytona Beach. The Spirit of Daytona will run the complete race schedule in 2004, beginning the season at its home track in the legendary Rolex 24 At Daytona, Jan. 29-Feb.1.

"We are extremely pleased to join efforts with Doug. He has driven our cars in the past, winning several championships and many races, with the biggest being the Rolex 24 At Daytona. With all of our experience, his experience and a fabulous car, I see no reason why we will not have a very successful year," said Flis.

As previously announced, DCG Racing purchased Daytona Prototype chassis 003 from Crawford Race Cars, of Denver, N.C. The team will have the opportunity to see the first Crawford Daytona Prototype on track at the end of November, when Crawford will hold the initial test for the cars at Virginia International Raceway.

"Given the tremendous success we had the first season with our (American) GT car, we expect the same level of success with the Daytona Prototype," remarked Goad.
