DARLINGTON, S.C. (March 17, 2000) Hendrick Motorsports has announced a new partnership with Cicci-Welliver Racing designed to enhance the performance of both organizations' NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Division teams.

As part of the exclusive agreement, the two organizations will share aerodynamic, chassis and certain technical information as well as participate together in in-house testing sessions and those held at outside facilities. They may also join forces to test during a limited number of NASCAR Winston Cup races using Cicci-Welliver drivers.

Cicci-Welliver Racing veteran drivers David Green (No. 34 AFG Glass Chevrolet), Todd Bodine (No. 66 Phillips Chevrolet) and Tim Fedewa (No. 36 Stanley Chevrolet) will work with No. 24 GMAC driver Ricky Hendrick during on-track test sessions. Hendrick Motorsports will provide Cicci-Welliver access to chassis and engine dyno testing facilities, key personnel and wind tunnel results throughout the season.

"This alliance should be extremely beneficial to both sides," said Hendrick Motorsports CEO and founder Rick Hendrick. "Any time you can increase the effectiveness of your program through shared cooperation and information, it's a move worth making. We've got a lot of respect for Cicci-Welliver Racing and look forward to working with them this year.

Cicci-Welliver's Managing Partner Frank Cicci echoed Hendrick's sentiments.

"Both Scott Welliver and myself are very happy with this new partnership," Cicci said. "We consider it a privelege to be partnering with Rick Hendrick, who's a first class individual with a top-notch organization. All of us at Cicci-Welliver Racing look forward to working together for a mutually rewarding relationship that will lead our respective teams to Victory Lane."
