Stremme, Team TRIMSPA Ready to Build on Spring Lowe's Performance

Concord, NC (October 13, 2004) - David Stremme finished eighth at the Carquest Auto Parts 300 this spring at Lowe's Motor Speedway (LMS) and he would like nothing more than to duplicate or improve on that performance this weekend. However, the stakes are higher entering this weekend's race at LMS, because Stremme is just 27 points out of the top 10 in Busch Series driver points.

"We have had some good, consistent runs recently and I am proud of the TRIMSPA Team for the effort they have put in," said Stremme, driver of the TRIMSPA X32 Dodge. "But every time I start paying attention to points we seem to start slipping. I am just focusing on running smart races and making sure we finish out the year on a good note."

A strong third place finish by Stremme last weekend in Kansas capped off an eight-position ascent in the Busch Series points in the last 12 events. A good finish this weekend could go a long way to getting Stremme a seat at the banquet table in Orlando.

"It has been a rollercoaster season for the TRIMSPA Team," said Stremme. "Either we have a top finish or a DNF, not much in between. While the points may not show it, we have a lot of top fives and top 10's compared to the guys ahead of us. I am not focusing on that. I don't need to be in the top 10 in points to know that this is a top 10 team."

An added bonus of this weekend's SpongeBob SquarePants Movie 300 is that the TRIMSPA Team does not have to travel to compete. With Lowe's Motor Speedway just 30 minutes from Braun Racing's headquarters, it is the final weekend of the season for the team to sleep in their own beds.

"We are racing in front of our friends and families this weekend, as well as the fans and sponsors," said Stremme. "It's a big event."

Stremme and Team TRIMSPA will compete in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie 300 Friday, October 15th. The event will be televised live at 8 p.m. eastern time on TNT and will broadcast nationally at that same time on radio stations affiliated with PRN and XM Satellite Radio Channel 144.
