National City to Sponsor Tim Sauter at Kentucky

CINCINNATI--June 9th, 2006 -- The #36 car will be emblazoned with National City green and white at the upcoming Busch Series Race at Kentucky Speedway on June 17. National City will be the primary sponsor of the Chevy driven by Tim Sauter and owned by McGill Motorsports at the Meijer 300.

On Thursday, June 15, Cincinnati area fans and the media will have two opportunities to meet Tim Sauter and view the National City #36 Chevy: Noon-1 p.m. at the National City Crescent Springs branch in the Buttermilk Towne Center and 2 p.m.-3 p.m. at the National City Hebron branch on North Bend Road north of I-275.

"We look forward to being involved with what has quickly become the largest annual sporting event in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky," said Barbara Dundee, National City's local director of marketing. "This is great exposure of the National City brand both in the area and throughout the country."

Tim Sauter is one of three Sauter brothers racing in the 2006 Busch Series. Following in the footsteps of his father, Tim Sauter's rise in auto racing began on the short tracks of Wisconsin. Sauter started racing in the Busch Series with a limited schedule in 2001 and completed the full series in 2002. After a stint in the American Speed Association, Sauter returned to the Busch Series in 2006 to complete the full schedule with McGill Motorsports. Sauter has five top-25 finishes so far this year.
