Hickory, NC May 8, 2003 For most people when you think of Kentucky, what most often comes to mind is bluegrass, the Derby, but for Jason Jarrett, what comes to mind is "horsepower" and winning a race on Mother's Day weekend at Kentucky Speedway!

"It would be nice to win a race on Mother's Day weekend," remarked Jarrett. "If you can't be home with Mom, you might as well win a race; be forgiven," Jarrett, jokingly added.

Jarrett comes to Kentucky Speedway with the hopes of adding another plus in the win column. Last season's fourth place finish in the July race, gave Jarrett his best finish to-date at this speedway.

"At Kentucky, we've had mixed feelings; we've run well but we don't have a lot to show for it," said Jarrett. "But this year, with just one trip to this facility, they made the race longer, which is great. It gives everyone a chance to adjust on their cars. If you slip up qualifying, you can still get the car sorted out and be there at the end."

"And this team is pumped following our second place finish at Toledo last weekend," added Jarrett. "The guys have given us some great pit stops where we've gained track position, and we're looking to have that happen again at Kentucky Speedway."

The ARCA RE/MAX Series presents the Channel 5-205 at Kentucky Speedway this Saturday, May 10th beginning at 8:00 p.m. and will be broadcast live on Speed Channel.

Jason Jarrett is the driver for the #67 ML Motorsports Biomet / Damon RV sponsored Chevrolet Monte Carlo, and is also a member of the Coca-Cola Racing Family.
