Charlotte, NC (Friday June 27th, 2003) - - Jay Robinson Racing heads to "The Milwaukee Mile" this weekend, hoping that the fireworks will explode early and greet one of the most underfunded teams in the NASCAR Busch Series with solid results.

Derrike Cope, who has had several good runs in the No. 49 Ford for the team this year is back, while Blake Mallory will take the reigns of the No. 39 machine this weekend.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to once again to drive for Jay Robinson this weekend," said Cope. "We've had some real consistent results so far this year, and we're aiming for nothing more but the same on Sunday."

JRR (Jay Robinson Racing) along with 1990 Daytona 500 champion Derrike Cope are proud to announce the primary sponsorship of Black Cat Fireworks for the GNC Live Well 250 on Sunday.

"I am so proud to have Black Cat on board with us this weekend," Cope added. "We're approaching a Holiday, which means a lot to all of us, and to have Black Cat aboard means an awful lot to this team"

NASCAR Busch Series rookie Blake Mallory will pilot Jay Robinson Racing second car this weekend. Mallory, a resident of Justin, Texas will have backing from Three Stooges Beer, a known sponsor for JRR in 2003.

"I'm awfully excited about having the opportunity to race this weekend," said Mallory. For Mallory, it will be about attracting some seat time this weekend in Milwaukee. "We have several goals in mind heading into the weekend," he said.

"We want to practice, qualify for the race, and gain some seat time in the NASCAR Busch Series on Sunday. "I have to thank Jay Robinson and Three Stooges Beer, as they both have given me the opportunity to climb behind the wheel, it really means a lot."

For car owner Jay Robinson, he's hoping for good results. "We really have had some solid weekends as of late, but it's time to come out and impress and hopefully this weekend will be one of the weekends that we do," said the North Carolina native.

"I have great confidence in both Derrike and Blake, and I know that both drivers are going to give no less than 100% and to me that's all I can ask for."

The seventeenth event of the 2003 NASCAR Busch Series schedule heads to the Milwaukee Mile for Sunday's running of the GNC Live Well 250. Practice and qualifying are set for Saturday, while the field of 43 drivers will take the green flag on June 29th starting at 2:00pm EST.
