Canadian NASCAR Driver at Phoenix race with new sponsor.

High Point, NC:- November 5, 2004 - Canadian NASCAR Busch Series driver - John Graham - starts his 4th Busch Series race this Saturday at the Bashas' Supermarkets 200 held at Phoenix International Raceway in sunny Arizona. While Graham will start on the row immediately behind Nextel Cup veteran Michael Waltrip, he will be surrounded by about a dozen Nextel Cup regulars who will be driving later in the NASCAR Nextel Cup race. These drivers include Rusty and Kenny Wallace, Robby Gordon, Mark Martin and Casey Mears who help make up the 43 car starting grid.

John Graham, the only Canadian NASCAR driver competing at the Phoenix event, is driving the 'Cereality Cereal Bar and Cafe' sponsored #72 Chevrolet Monte Carlo run by the MacDonald Motorsports team. Graham has established himself as a competitive driver by piloting the #72 car three times this season. He has also raced in numerous other forms of international motorsport including seven starts at the 24 Hours of LeMans and two starts in the gruelling Paris-Dakar Rally. Graham and his business partner, Rob Fessler, are enthusiastic about the upcoming race. "We are new to NASCAR and are excited about bringing a new company into this sport. This is not only a great opportunity for Cereality but for our company - Aurora Inventive - as well," noted Fessler.

"Cereality is the biggest breakthrough concept to emerge in the restaurant industry this year so it was a natural fit to sponsor John Graham, himself a newcomer to the NASCAR Busch Series." said Cereality co-founder, David Roth. "With the end of the NASCAR season just around the corner, Cereality wanted to take part in this action-packed weekend that is sure to appeal to every true fan."

The NASCAR Busch Series race is broadcast live from Phoenix International Raceway starting at 3:30 ET. For more information about Cereality go to www.cereality.com .
