I also would like to thank Rusty Wallace Marketing, Rusty Wallace, Dick Paysor and Tom Knox for facilitating." The final agreement was set between Rusty Wallace Marketing and Chuck Gafrarar Racing.
Gafrarar stated, "this is an exciting new sponsor for us and we are proud to add Travel Club International! Having TCI on board the 52 car will be a great addition to our Sponsor Team. TCI is a unique worldwide membership club geared for any traveler. The more I learn about the concept the more I am impressed with the company. I look forward to representing Travel Club International for an exciting 2003 race season."
