LEONG RETURNS TO COPENHAGEN RACING CAMARO FUNNY CAR

VISTA, Calif., July 8, 1999 - Don "The Snake" Prudhomme announced today that Roland Leong will be back in the Copenhagen Racing Camaro Funny Car pits at the inaugural Winston Showdown this weekend at Bristol, Tenn. Leong will serve as an advisor to current crew chief and longtime protégé Todd Okuhara. Prudhomme continued to keep Leong on the payroll since his departure as crew chief in June.

"We are very happy with Todd and have 100 percent confidence in his ability," said Prudhomme. "He is our guy and we respect his decision to bring Roland back into the pits as an advisor. Our collective goal is to win races and if Todd believes this move will help us achieve that objective, I'm completely comfortable with that."

Leong welcomed the opportunity to return and groom Okuhara into a number one crew chief. "I am a team player and have a vested interest in the team and Okuhara's personal development. Like everyone at Prudhomme Racing, I want to see the Copenhagen Racing Camaro back in the winner's circle."
