Watkins Glen, NY (June 22, 2000) - This weekend's Lysol 200 NASCAR Busch Series event at Watkins Glen is shaping up to be a battle of the Americas as Canadian road racing ace, Ron Fellows, prepares to do battle with Latin American, Jaime Guerrero. Guerrero will be making his NASCAR Busch Series debut as the series makes its annual appearance at the scenic 2.45-mile road course. Jaime Guerrero, 27, is the younger brother of open wheel ace, Roberto Guerrero and an ex-teammate and rival of CART superstar and Indy 500 champion, Juan Montoya. Guerrero will be driving for NASCAR's only Hispanic-owned team, the No. 72 HRT Motorsports entry. "Race fans throughout South America already know what I am capable of," said Guerrero. "I can't wait to hit the track in the States and show the world who Jaime Guerrero is. I know I have to produce so I won't be looked at as Roberto's younger brother." Standing in Jaime's way to victory circle at The Glen this weekend will be over 40 of the best and brightest stars in NASCAR's Busch Series and one Ron Fellows. Fellows is the defending champion of the Bully Hill Vineyards 150 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race and is looking to improve on his second place finish in last year's Lysol 200. "The goal for myself, Brian and the guys is to take care of some unfinished business from last year," said Fellows, driver of the No. 87 Bully Hill Chevrolet. "Even with a win and two second-place finishes, we still have room to improve. The competition gets better each year and it's going to be tougher than ever, but we'll come prepared and hope for a good weekend." Tickets and pit passes for this weekend's Lysol 200 and Bully Hill Vineyards 150 are still available. For ticket, reserved camping, or additional information, contact the Watkins Glen ticket office at 607-535-2481 or visit The Glen's website at www.theglen.com .
