ANDY BRUMBAUGH/ROAR RACING SHOWING ITS POTENTIAL

COLUMBIA, SC (June 20, 2007) --Ohio native Andy Brumbaugh and the ROAR Racing Mazda will be competing in the Grand-Am event at the EMCO Gears Classic 2007 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, OH June 22-24. Brumbaugh and Joe Scarbrough co-drive 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.

"Mid-Ohio is like a home track to me. I was born in nearby Zanesville and came here often as a kid for my father's kart and Formula Ford races. I had some very strong runs here when I was competing in professional open wheel racing," said Brumbaugh. "I am so proud of this ROAR Racing team. Everyone has worked so hard and we've come a long way. We now expect to be at or near the top of the time sheets every session and achieved our first laps in the class lead during a race. The reliability of Roar is getting so much better every race, if only we could stop getting taken out 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 a podium very soon."

Brumbaugh is a multi-time champion in karting and open wheel racing and was one of the top two young American drivers selected to test for the Porsche junior team in Germany. This is his fourth season of Grand-Am competition having raced Porsche's, Mazda's and Lexus' in both the Rolex and Grand-Am Cup/KONI Challenge divisions.
