Joey McCarthy Welcomes Back TRIMSPA As Sponsor For Final Four 2004 Races

(Cedar Knolls, N.J. - Sept. 15, 2004) - Joey McCarthy, the "Most Improved Driver" in NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch North Series competition last year, has signed TRIMSPA as his main sponsor for the final four races he will run in the 2004 season.

McCarthy, now driving for Glenn Rudolph's STI Motorsports team, had TRIMSPA as a sponsor for his 2002 campaign in the series. Since that time, he's stayed in contact with the company's CEO, Alex Goen, and what has been both a professional relationship as well as friendship has developed into this latest sponsorship deal.

"We've always kept in touch, since we live in the same town, and it's great that he's offered to help us out again," McCarthy said. "I'm excited to be driving for TRIMSPA once again. They've saved the day, allowing us to make sure we can run competitively through the end of the season.

"It's not often that you get a second chance to work with the same company, but I'm going to take advantage of this opportunity. Having a sponsor that also has cars in national series will help attract attention to our program, which is vital in this sport. And TRIMSPA really supports their racing efforts 100%. They've taken a real interest in our program and in myself as a driver."

With the new sponsorship, McCarthy's race cars, which have been white No. 8 Chevrolets all season, will arrive at New Hampshire International Speedway for this weekend's Sylvania 125 Presented By Lowe's repainted red and wearing the number 64, similar to the TRIMSPA-sponsored car driven by Ryan Hemphill in the ARCA Re/Max Series.

In addition to the New Hampshire International Speedway race, McCarthy will drive the TRIMSPA Chevrolet at Dover (Del.) International Speedway (Sept. 24), Wall Township (N.J.) Speedway (Oct. 2), and in the second annual Toyota NASCAR All-Star Showdown in Irwindale, California on November 13th.

"All the hard work and sacrifice we put in all year is starting to pay off," said McCarthy, who enters the New Hampshire race eighth in series points with three top-five finishes. "We've got the sponsor that we've been looking for all year on board to help us finish the season strong, and I look forward to moving on and succeeding with our new partners."
