Buras and Research Racing Move to Hooverspeed

BOCA RATON, Fla. (April 11, 2008) - Research Racing, LLC and driver Todd Buras announced changes to their 2008 SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup plans today. The team will now join Hooverspeed of Cameron Park, Calif., for all of its planned U.S.-based races.

"We are delighted to be working with Jason Hoover and his Hooverspeed team," said Racing Research, LLC team principal Allan Boshell. "The series' schedule change from Houston and Cleveland to Portland and Elkhart Lake posed some problems for us and we felt moving to a west coast based operation would be best for our efforts."

Boshell, of Boca Raton, Fla., and fellow team principal Chad Stanford, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., have placed Buras in their MX-5 Cup car with a mission to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer and encourage others to visit The Patty Boshell Pancreatic Cancer Foundation Web site, www.pancreaticcure.org, founded by Boshell. The Foundation's purpose is to fund research devoted to pancreatic cancer by partnering with the team's other sponsor, The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (www.pancan.org), which is the nation's largest and most active organization devoted to wiping out the dreadful disease.

"We are happy to see Todd join our team and to have the presence of Research Racing on our cars and in our paddock," team owner Jason Hoover said. "Their cause of getting more research dollars for pancreatic cancer is an admirable one and we are proud to be part of this important effort."

The 2008 MX-5 Cup season will begin at Road Atlanta, May 1 -- 3.
