Toby Grahovec Switches to BMW Z4 in Quest for SCCA National Championship

Mansfield, OH (September 19, 2005) - Perennial Sports Car Club of America Showroom Stock B (SSB) front-runner, Toby Grahovec, has decided to trade in his trusty Acura Integra GSR for a BMW Z4 as he aims for the top of the podium during this week's SCCA National Championship Runoffs. The prestigious event will be held at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course. The race is scheduled to get the green flag on September 23, 2005 at 11:55am and will be televised on the Speed Channel on November 20, 2005 at 1:00pm.

Grahovec, a former Dodge Motorsports factory driver, is a past pole-sitter and podium finisher in the SSB Class at the SCCA National Championship Runoffs. SportsCar Magazine has picked Grahovec as a potential winner. The Palos Park, Illinois native will also be featured on the Speed Channel during their broadcast of the race. Grahovec has recently started a website that can be found at www.TobyGrahovec.com.

Grahovec will be driving the No. 2 BMW Z4 prepared by Classic BMW of Richardson, Texas (www.classicBMW.com). The BMW Z4 will prominently feature the distinctive Paw Power logos, as Classic BMW and their supporters proudly support the Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc. Supporting the Paw Power theme are sponsors Comcast Spotlight, English Color and Supply, and Reynolds & Reynolds who have all sponsored guide dogs through their support of the racing effort. Additional Support comes from Hoosier Racing Tire, Red Line Oil, King Motorsports, RealTime Racing, Trackside Communications and IMAGE Sports Marketing and Management.
