MIKE WALLACE TO PILOT EVERNHAM MOTORSPORTS' NO. 6 HUNGRY DRIVERS DODGE CHARGER AT BRISTOL

Statesville, NC (March 29, 2005) -- Unilever Foods and Evernham Motorsports announced today that veteran driver, Mike Wallace will pilot the No. 6 Hungry Drivers Dodge Charger in this weekend's NASCAR Busch Series event at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Ray Evernham, CEO and President, Evernham Motorsports, called upon Wallace because he felt it was essential to have a veteran driver with short track racing experience for the demanding Bristol event.

"I felt very strongly that we needed to have a veteran behind the wheel of the Hungry Drivers Dodge this weekend," said Evernham. "Bristol is a very demanding race track where things can happen very quickly. Mike has a lot of experience on this track - he knows what to expect and he knows what he needs in a race car to be successful there. We have made some gains with our Busch program in the last couple of weeks and I think that having a driver of Mike's caliber behind the wheel this weekend will help us to continue making those strides in the right direction."

Evernham Motorsports and Unilever Foods are in the process of evaluating their options for the remainder of the season and expect to announce long-term plans for the Hungry Drivers team in the coming weeks. They will continue to look for talented young drivers to be a part of the Hungry Drivers program and Evernham Motorsports driver development program throughout the 2005 season.
