THIS TIME THE RACE IS ON FOR KRISTIN BUMBERA AT SOUTH BOSTON SPEEDWAY

HOUSTON, TX -- MAY 28, 2009 Kristin Bumbera and the #94 Love's Travel Stops Dodge will roll into South Boston Speedway this Saturday for the Camping World Series 150. This is not the first time the only female competitor in the series has made laps at SOBO but it will be the first time she has actually competed in a race at the speedway.

Bumbera has participated in the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Test and Combine held at South Boston Speedway for the past two years. Each year she has signed to drive for a NASCAR team owner. In 2008 Bumbera drove a late model for Frank Jordan's Golden State Racing in Roseville, CA completing the season with a new track record, four pole awards, two wins, and numerous tops five finishes.

This season Bumbera is driving in the NASCAR Camping World Series East for Hamilton Racing. The Drive for Diversity team owned by NASCAR driver Bobby Hamilton Jr. is based out of Nashville, TN and lead by crew chief Danny Gill.

"I'm looking forward to going back to the speedway to actually race this time." said Bumbera. "Cathy Rice and her staff have always been such great people to work with during the D for D combines the past two years. I'm hoping to bring our A-game this weekend for the Virginia fans and put on a good show."
