Statesville, NC (June 14, 2005) -- Unilever Foods and Evernham Motorsports announced today that Casey Atwood, Tracy Hines and Mike Wallace will join the Hungry Drivers Racing program. Each will get time behind the wheel of the No. 6 Dodge Charger in upcoming events, beginning with the June 18, 2005 NASCAR Busch Series event at Kentucky Speedway.

Nashville, TN native, Casey Atwood, who competed in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series for Evernham Motorsports from 2001-2002, will join his former team to pilot the No. 6 Dodge Hungry Drivers Dodge Charger in next weekend's NASCAR Busch Series event at Kentucky Speedway and in the July event at New Hampshire International Raceway. In 2004, Atwood drove 29 of 34 NASCAR Busch Series races in the No. 14 entry owned by FitzBradshaw Racing, posting one top-five and seven top-10 finishes. This season, Atwood has been seen in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series where he competed in three events for Bobby Hamilton Racing, posting one top-10 and two top-15 finishes.

NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series regular and open wheel stand out, Tracy Hines, who drove the No. 6 Dodge in three races in last season's Hungry Drivers program, will take over the reins at The Milwaukee Mile on June 25, 2005 and in August at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Hines competes full-time in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and runs limited schedules in the Sprint car series as well as the Silver Crown Series, where he is currently the point's leader.

Veteran Mike Wallace, drove the No. 6 Dodge earlier this season in Bristol and will join the Hungry Drivers team again for NASCAR Busch Series events at Daytona International Speedway and Gateway International Raceway. Wallace is the defending race winner of the July event at Daytona and has high hopes to repeat this year driving for Evernham Motorsports and Unilever Foods. Wallace competes full time in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series No. 4 entry owned by Morgan-McClure Motorsports.
