ANTRON BROWN FEATURED ON COVER OF CHRISTIAN MOTORSPORTS ILLUSTRATED

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 8, 2009) - Antron Brown, who leads the NHRA Top Fuel standings, is featured on the cover of the current issue of Christian Motorsports Illustrated. Brown's DirecTV/Matco Tools dragster dons the cover of the Second Quarter 2009 issue of CMI that will be available beginning at the 30th annual Mopar Mile-High Nationals, July 10-12, at Bandimere Speedway.

"It's very meaningful to be on the cover of CMI," Brown said. "It's really cool to see and spread the fellowship with other brother's and sister's in Christ in the motorsports industry. We look forward to seeing the magazine this weekend at Denver and to help spread the word about CMI."

The cover article, written by Doug Johnson, is titled: Antron Brown, Taking it from 300 HP to 8,000 HP, Being the Best You Can Be. Brown, a 20-time NHRA winner, regularly attends the Sunday morning Racer's For Christ (RFC) Chapel Service hosted by RFC Chaplain Larry Smiley.

"We're really pleased to feature Antron (Brown) and his faithful encouragement to kids and his fellow racers," CMI Creative Director Deaven Butler said.

Brown, a 20-time NHRA winner, enters the 13th race on the 2009 NHRA schedule with a 53-point lead over two-time champion Larry Dixon. The Matco Tools flagship driver has two wins in five final round appearances this season, along with earning four No. 1 qualifying awards. Brown also clocked three fastest runs of the season, including his 319.75 mph blast at Bristol, Tenn. in May.
