Red Cactus Racing Signs Goeters for NEXTEL Cup event this Sunday

PINE BROOK, N.J. (August 11, 2005) -- Red Cactus Racing, in a unique partnership with Arnold Motorsports, has announced Mexico City native Jorge Goeters as the driver of the No. 50 CU National Mortgage Dodge for the NEXTEL Cup SIRIUS Satellite Radio at the Glen on August 14. The race at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International marks Goeters first appearance in a NEXTEL Cup event.

Goeters received international attention earlier this year when he captured the pole and led 24 laps in the inaugural NASCAR Busch Series race in Mexico City.

"We are thrilled to have Jorge Goeters drive the CU National Mortgage NEXTEL Cup car," said Michael McGrath, president of US Mortgage Corp., parent company of CU National Mortgage. "Jorge is a proven top-tier driver and it's obvious by his pole position at this year's race in Mexico City that he has what it takes to run with the very best in NASCAR."

"Jorge thrives at road course races and we expect his excellence to continue with Red Cactus Racing and Arnold Motorsports here at Watkins Glen," said Dan Griffin, owner of Red Cactus Racing. "This will be a very special weekend for Red Cactus Racing and CU National Mortgage to have Kerry Earnhardt as our Busch Series driver and Jorge Goeters behind the wheel of our NEXTEL Cup car."

2005 continues to be a year of firsts for the Mexican star. Aside from capturing the Busch Pole award, Goeters also competed in his first Champ Car Series race at Monterrey. Goeters has been competing in the Corona Stock Car Series where he currently leads the championship standings.

In the pairing of teams, Red Cactus Racing and Arnold Motorsports have joined forces to field the NEXTEL Cup entry. The pairing allows Red Cactus Racing's sponsor CU National Mortgage to enter the NEXTEL Cup Series with the combined experience of the two NASCAR teams.

Kerry Earnhardt will be behind the wheel of the No. 73 CU National Mortgage Chevrolet for the Zippo 200 Busch Series race at Watkins Glen on Saturday, August 13.
