PORTLAND, Ore. - March 10, 2003 - Cindi Lux and her NayKid Racing team partners inaugurated the brand new 2.5-mile Arizona Motorsports Park at the SCCA national race this past weekend. Lux's successful weekend started with her qualifying third. She went on to take the win at the checkered flag while her teammates finished second and third on the podium. This race marks Lux's first win of the 2003 season and the team's third in three races this season.

Driving the team's No. 78 Corvette Z06 racing machine, Lux set a race lap record of 1:44.40. Lux and her teammate Gilhart were nose to tail charging hard for the first eight out of the 21-lap race. The two Corvettes were never more than a car width apart. A little bobble by Gilhart and Lux slid by and won the race.

"Overall we're very happy with the results. This is my first win this season and it feels fantastic. Now all three of us have wins under our belts. My biggest competitors are my teammates Scotty and Rick and it really pushes me which is great. This weekend was a good show for NayKid Racing," Lux said of her first NayKid Racing win.

Lux leaves on Wednesday to start training celebrities for the 2003 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race for the Long Beach Grand Prix. The training days will consist of intense training that is required by all participants in the celebrity race regardless of their racing background. The training is held at Willow Springs, Calif. where Lux started racing in 1988.

NayKid Racing welcomes Kumho Tires, Redline Oil, Suburban Chevrolet and Kodiak Racing Wheels as its sponsors of the 2003 SCCA race season.

NayKid Racing will next compete in Buttonwillow, Calif. on March 28 and 29 at the SCCA regional race.
