Irwindale, CA - Oct. 2, 2000 - Even with Murphy's Law in full force, the CBA Motorsports #16 car managed to qualify 16th in Driver Troy Adams' first outing.

The newly reorganized team, including Adams and crew chief Daniel Larsen, had their work cut out for them. In lap 32 of the Southwest Featherlite Tour race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the water hose broke, wetting the rear tires, causing the car to spinout and crash in turn two.

The team immediately pulled together, repairing the damage, giving Adams the opportunity to finish the race. "We were very pleased with our first showing," said CBA Motorsports owner Clarence Broussard. "Troy demonstrated not only his driving skill, but showed a lot of grace under pressure as well. And our team worked as if we'd been together for years.

"We're now working to correct the damage to the car," he continued, "and look forward to making our local debut at Irwindale on Saturday, Oct. 7."

CBA Motorsports is one of the few hands-on, minority-owned NASCAR teams competing today. Avid long-time racing fans, owner Broussard and his partner Kit Kurisaki are committed to creating a winning NASCAR team and to opening up the sport to new audiences in minority communities everywhere.

ADAMS WILL COMPETE IN THE "FOOD 4 LESS 150" THIS WEEKEND AT IRWINDALE SPEEDWAY
