DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (June 18, 2002) -- Robinson Racing and driver Jack Baldwin kicked off a two-day test session at Daytona International Speedway on Tuesday in preparation for the Rolex Sports Car Series Jani-King Paul Revere 250 on July 4.

Baldwin and George Robinson will team up to compete in the Jani-King Paul Revere 250, which will go green following Bud Pole Qualifying for the Pepsi 400 NASCAR Winston Cup Series race on July 4.

Robinson Racing, with drivers Baldwin, Robinson, Wally Dallenbach and Mark Simo, finished 65th in February's 40th anniversary of the Rolex 24 after developing overheating problems several hours into the race.

Unsatisfied with February's results, the team opted to return to the "World Center of Racing" with hopes of continuing to develop the No. 74 Ranch Resort Judd Riley & Scott Mark IIIC.

"We made a lot of changes to the car and we're just trying to verify those changes," Baldwin said. "The car is totally different from February. We've got aero changes and mechanical changes and the engine. We've never run here with a five liter."

Robinson Racing will continue testing on Wednesday at the Speedway and the session is free and open to the public with access to the Oldfield Grandstand through the lobby of DAYTONA USA.

Tickets for the Jani-King Paul Revere 250 are available online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling the Speedway ticket office at (386) 253-7223.
