PORTLAND, Ore. -- June 19, 2003 -- Team NayKid Racing has been keeping busy on the race track with driver Cindi Lux winning at last weekend's Rose Cup Race and teammates Rick Gilhart and team owner Scotty B. White coming in second and third, respectively. The Z06 Corvette squad will go on to compete at the SCCA

June Sprints at Road America this weekend and go for a second team win in a row to continue their season-long winning streak.

Last weekend the Kumho Tire/Redline Oil/Kodiak Racing Wheel Z06 Corvettes sponsored by Suburban Chevrolet took to Portland International Raceway with gusto. White qualified on the pole, Lux second and Gilhart third. The trio qualified only .3 tenths apart. The 43rd annual Rose Cup race concluded with Lux winning at her home track and setting the fast lap of the race. White debuted his brand new No. 3 Z06 Corvette and finished third. Gilhart, who had taken some time off from racing with the team was excited to be back and round out the one-two-three team win.

NayKid Racing donated the pit crew pass to a local high school charity auction that was held in May. Proceeds from the charity benefit art and physical education programs in the high school. Recipient Rayelle Gann had the time of her life being a part of the winning team at Portland International Raceway. "I came back for a second day I had so much fun. I'd love to become a full time crew member because the team was absolutely great to work with," Gann said of her first pit crew experience.

The team travels to Road America for this weekend's 48th annual Kohler/SCCA June Sprints held on June 20-22 at Road America. More than 485 entries are set to compete over the three-day event marking the race the largest club racing national event of the year.

"This is the first time NayKid Racing has been to this event and we hope to make an impression. I'm looking forward to the race because there are a large amount of teams here and there is going to be some good competition. We've had a great season so far and we hope to continue the momentum," NayKid Racing owner Scotty B. White said.

Based in Puyallup, Wash., NayKid Racing was formed in 1999 by team owner and driver Scotty B. White. White is involved in the growth and administrative functions of the team.
