ALTON, Va. (October 13, 2006) -- Synergy Racing will open a facility at Miller Motorsports Park outside Salt Lake City, Utah, to serve as headquarters for the team's new IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge program and the base for its west coast operations.

In addition to campaigning Porsches in the Rolex Sports Car Series and Grand-Am Cup Series, Synergy Racing will also field entries in the 2007 IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Michelin, a series designed exclusively for Porsche GT3 Cup race cars.

"We're very excited about opening our new location at Miller Motorsports Park," said Cole Scrogham, team co-owner. "This will allow us to better serve our customers on the west coast, while also giving us a base of operation during west coast races.

"We're also looking forward to competing in the 2007 IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge," he continued. "As an exclusively Porsche team, this series is a perfect fit for Synergy Racing. We look to continue our history as Porsche champions in IMSA GT3 Cup."

The latest addition to Synergy Racing's operations provides the team with a nationwide footprint with facilities on the east coast, in the Midwest and in the western U.S. The team's locations now include:

Virginia International Raceway, Alton, Va. -- VIR will continue to serve as primary headquarters for Synergy Racing. It will be the construction and maintenance site for its GT3 race cars and the base of operations for the Rolex Series GT and Grand-Am Cup GS programs.

Miller Motorsports Park, Tooele, Utah -- In addition to servicing west coast clients and events, the Miller Motorsports Park facility opening in March 2007 will be the base of operations for the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge program and a maintenance site for GT3 race cars.

Plain City, Ohio -- Synergy's facility near Columbus leads its engineering development initiatives and serves as the base of operations for its Rolex Series Daytona Prototype program.

"There is a tremendous benefit to having a facility located at a racetrack," noted Scrogham. "Our customers appreciate the ability to roll out of our shop and onto the track at VIR, which is why we selected Miller Motorsports Park for our west coast facility. It will provide customers with the same benefits, while also being close to a major airport in Salt Lake City to make travel to the track convenient."

Synergy Racing's new facility at Miller Motorsports Park is schedule to open in March 2007.

About Synergy Racing Team owners Cole Scrogham and Danny and Steve Marshall introduced Synergy Racing in December 2004. Based at Virginia International Raceway, Synergy Racing is an evolution of G&W Motorsports, which had catered to Porsche racing since 1996 and became the most successful team in the Rolex Sports Car Series with three team championships and four driver champions, 15 class wins and more than 50 podium finishes. The team underwent a major transformation that included a name and logo change, as well as a complete restructuring into a customer-based championship racing business, which concentrates on the needs of the customer rather than solely the desires of the team.
