FINLAY MOTORSPORTS TO SPONSOR DANE CAMERON IN COOPER TIRES FORMULA 2000 SERIES

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 13, 2006) -- Finlay Motorsports, a professional racing organization currently competing in the Rolex Sports Car Series and the Grand Am Cup Series, announced earlier today plans to support Dane Cameron in the Cooper Tires F2000 Series. With additional support coming from the Jim Russell Racing Schools and Red Line Oil.

"With the rapid growth of Grand American Sports Car racing, we believe it is essential to have a driver development program in place," explained Rob Finlay. "I'm excited to place Dane with Cape Motorsports, they have had great success in the past grooming champions."

Dane Cameron is the son of Finlay Motorsports engineer Rick Cameron, and nephew of Steve Cameron, the Finlay Motorsports Team Manger and driver coach.

"Dane has had to work hard to get this opportunity," stated Steve Cameron. "I wasn't about to bring Dane on board with the team unless he truly displayed the talent required to be an asset to Finlay Motorsports."

The 17-year old Kart racing "phenom" from Sonoma, California will drive anything on wheels. In 2005, Cameron embarked on an ambitious program of racing both karts and cars, while attending school at Sonoma Valley High School.

Clinching the 2005 SCCA Formula Russell Championship with six victories, seven pole positions and finishing on the podium a total of 10 times. He also competed in several ICC Pro 125 shifter class events in the ESPN Russell Karting Championship and few Snap-On Stars of Karting races. In 2006, Cameron has been given the chance to compete in the highly competitive Cooper Tires Formula 2000 Series driving for Cape Motorsports.
