Joe Balash Named NASCAR Busch Series Director

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 19, 2004) - NASCAR officials today named Joe Balash as director of the NASCAR Busch Series.

Balash will assume his new duties immediately. He replaces Brian DeHart, who resigned the position.

Balash joined NASCAR several months ago as the technical director for NASCAR's touring divisions. He came to NASCAR from the American Speed Association where he most recently served as that sanctioning body's senior vice president of race operations.

"We are pleased to have Joe on the team," said NASCAR President Mike Helton. "He brings a lot of experience to our competition department and everyone is looking forward to working with him."

Balash, a 41-year-old native of Hobart, Ind., has been involved in motorsports for nearly two decades in a variety of positions.
