The NASCAR Goody's Dash Series will welcome a new competitor to it's ranks September 20, when British racing champion Chris Hall, 37, makes his NASCAR touring series debut by competing in the American General Finance 100 at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, N.C. The London, England native, now residing in Dawsonville, Ga., brings with him a dazzling resume of European racing experience that includes more than 70 victories and three championships in Formula Ford, Formula Renault, Formula Three and Sedan divisions. Since moving to the U.S. in 1993, Hall has continued to keep his championship form by winning the SCCA Improved Touring National Championship in 1995.

In 1998, Hall plans to tackle the full schedule of NASCAR Goody's Dash Series events, in hopes of achieving his next goal, becoming the first Englishman to win a NASCAR touring series championship. -30- For more information, contact: NASCAR Public Relations, Tim Myers, at 919-552-5823. tm
