Road America Presents Challenge For TMS Pilots
Auberlen, Marks, Crescentini Prepare For Points Shoot-out

Road America, Elkhart Lake, WI - 08/20/2004 - Bill Auberlen carries a 16-point lead in the overall SPEED Touring Car Championship standings heading into this weekend's race at Road America in Wisconsin. The Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs/BMW of Watertown team also has two other drivers in the top ten; Justin Marks sits in fifth place and Dino Crescentini is in ninth. Dino also leads the Rookie-of-the-Year title championship.

Road America is a long, fast circuit that will favor the lighter, more powerful cars in the series. The BMWs have been saddled in recent events by ever-increasing R.E.W.A.R.D.S. weight and competition adjustments handed out by the series officials. Turner Motorsport put two drivers in the top five at last year's race.

Bill Auberlen, car #1 Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs/BMW of Watertown BMW 325i:

"There's going to be a lot of cars to contend with this weekend. The BMW of Watertown 325i has been excellent all year and the crews from Turner Motorsport, H&R, and StopTech have found more speed when we needed it. There's no doubt that the entire team will be contenders this weekend and this should be a good opportunity for Justin Marks and Dino Crescentini to move up in the Championship. As for me, I'm always gunning for a win and a little weight won't push me back very far."

This will be round eight of the SPEED Touring Car Championship. Practice is scheduled for today with qualifying on Saturday at 10:30am CT and the Touring race rolling off at 11:10am on Sunday. The SPEED Channel will broadcast this race beginning Sunday, August 29, 2004 at 12:00pm (ET).
