Sparta, KY (Thursday June 12th, 2003) - - Jay Robinson Racing heads to Kentucky Speedway this weekend hoping for impressive results. The team will once again have the drivers of Shane Hall and Jamie Mosley piloting their machines.

Hall, who drove the No. 49 Ford last weekend in Nashville will hope to bounce back from a disappointing finish under the lights after an early engine failure left the team scratching their heads.

It's a shame that the motor blew," said a dejected Hall after the race. "We had a good car and were moving through the field steadily and then it just let go."

Despite the disappointing results, the NASCAR Busch Series veteran is looking forward to Kentucky.

"I am looking forward to this weekend, it's another race under the lights and all we're looking for is a good finish."

Shane will once again have Goldenbeargolf.com, Jason Keller Charities, Bass Pro Shops, and Fans Motorsports as sponsors of his black Ford this weekend. "I'm glad to have all our sponsors back for this weekend, I know Nashville was disappointing for all of them, but we hope to have a strong showing for them all this weekend, they deserved it," Hall mentioned.

Jay Robinson Racing is also giving NASCAR Busch Series fans to be a part of the team. For only $50.00 a fan will have their name on the decklid (trunk) of the No. 49 in any race that they choose.

The particular fan will be an official sponsor of Jay Robinson Racing for the weekend and be forwarded ditigal pictures via e-mail after the race showing their name on the car.

Jamie Mosley returns to Jay Robinson Racing for his second race in the NASCAR Busch Series this season. In his first outing for the team he was impressive.

With limited practice time, Jamie was able to dodge several on track incidents, gain valuable experience in a Busch Car and march home 21st in his No. 39 Three Stooges Beer Ford.

"The experience we gained at Nashville last week will really help us as we head to our home track of Kentucky," said Mosley, who already raced at Kentucky earlier this year with his own ARCA team.

"Jay Robinson has given me a great opportunity to get a little more experience in the Busch Series and I think that we proved last week that we can run in the top-15 or top-20.

"We were very conservative last week, because we just wanted to help Jay out and get the car through the race and keep the car up there in owner's points. This week in Kentucky, though, we will have more of the 'green light' to go out there and race a lot harder. I know I can take from what I have learned in my two ARCA races at Kentucky and the experience of being in the Busch car last week. But make no doubt about it, this team will still be the underdog and I will be the underdog driver. I'll take that role and use it to my advantage."

Mosley's Busch debut at Kentucky Speedway will be helped by the addition of Karnes Dyno-Rev Engines, Waffle King and American Mortgage Lenders.

Karnes Dyno-Rev Engines is set on developing engines that are environmentally safe, abundant, cost effective, and relatively inextinguishable. Dyno-Rev Engines are incorporated in power cars, factories, homes and aircraft while saving our vital natural resources.

American Mortgage Lenders has also jumped on board for the Kentucky event. American Mortgage Lenders is a regional mortgage company offering a full range of mortgage loans based in Lexington (KY), with offices in London and Louisville. The company is licensed and operated in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia.

"I think things have come together well, and with the help of Karnes Dyno Engines, Waffle King and American Mortgage Lenders, we will have the shot to run even more competitive than we did in the ARCA race there. We know we can be competitive; we have all the things in place to do that. I will go into this race knowing that I am not out there to win or run in the top-five, but realistically run in the top-15 or top-20 and gain exposure for my sponsors. If I can do that in only my second Busch (Series) start, I will be satisfied."

Mosley is not the only home-state member of his team. In fact, his entire "over the wall" pit crew will be performing in front of their home-state fans as well, for the first time in the Busch Series. Mosley, who serves as a Kentucky State Police Dispatcher during the week, has enlisted several of his law enforcement buddies to work on the car and serve as the "over-the-wall" crew. The team is comprised of Kentucky State Troopers, Deputies and local Kentucky Police Officers.

The "Meijer 300 presented by Oreo" will be the 16th race for the NASCAR Busch Series. Qualifying for the race will be Friday, June 13th, at 5 pm. The 200-lap race is set to begin on Saturday, June 14th, at 8 pm. The race will be seen LIVE on FX.
