Boris Said Posts Sixth-Place Finish in Sonoma

SONOMA, Calif. (June 27, 2004) - Boris Said drove the No. 36 Team CENTRIX Financial Chevrolet to an impressive sixth-place finish in Sunday's NASCAR Nextel Cup event here at Infineon Raceway.

The road-racing guru, who also finished sixth at Infineon last year, hustled his way to the front after starting from the 19th position. He was running in the top 10 by Lap 25.

"That's the best I had today," remarked Said. "I was digging hard and it was a blast out there. I tied my best Cup finish and I'm getting closer."

The result was Said's third top-10 finish in his last four NASCAR Cup events. Aside from his back-to-back sixth-place finishes at Infineon, he also finished 10th in February's Bud Shootout at Daytona International Speedway.

"I had a great racecar today, thanks to CENTRIX Financial and MB2 Motorsports," offered Said. "The guys worked hard to give me first-class equipment. When you run against the best stock car racers in the world it brings the best out of you. I love this competition and can't wait for my next Cup race."

"We came out here and tested with Boris and learned a lot," said MB2 crew chief Ryan Pemberton. "I can't thank him enough for how much he helps us. He's a great competitor and he definitely proved that today."

Following Sunday's NASCAR race, Said got cooled down and went back at it in style, winning the Trans-Am race from the pole on Infineon's 11-turn, 1.99-mile road course.
