ANDY BRUMBAUGH/ROAR RACING SHOWS ITS POTENTIAL

COLUMBIA, SC (May 23, 2007) --Andy Brumbaugh and the Roar Racing Mazda charged to the front in the Grand-Am event at the U. S. Sports Car Invitational at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca May 19. Brumbaugh and Joe Scarbrough co-drove the team's #63 Mazda RX-8, sponsored by Winterhaven Farms/ The Toliver House Restaurant/Discovery Parts, in the ST class of the KONI Challenge. This was the first time Roar Racing held the overall class lead since its inception as a team last year.

"This was my first time racing at Laguna Seca and I loved the track," said Brumbaugh. "We had some niggling issues which limited our practice time but we ran great in the race. If it weren't for a fuel issue we would have won the race but that's just how it goes sometimes. We led the race and after the fuel issue, which cost us six laps, I turned lap after lap as the fastest car on the track at the end of the race. The reliability of Roar is getting so much better every race, if only we could stop getting taken out or making rookie errors on strategy then we could seal the deal in one of these races. Thanks to everyone at Roar and Winterhaven Farms and The Toliver House Restaurant for their support and we look forward to the podium at a race later this season."
