KNOXVILLE, IOWA (JULY 29, 2002) - Two-time Goodyear Masters Classic champion and one-time Indianapolis 500 starter Roger Rager of Pequot Lakes, Minn., has been named to "Team URC" for this Sunday's Brodix Tournament of Champions (ToC) at the Knoxville Raceway, as has track regular Terry Thorson of nearby Newton. The two alternates, both of whom will start at the rear of the nine-car United Racing Club (URC) heat, will replace entrants Scott Pursell and Curt Michael in the tournament team line-up according to Advance Auto Parts/Bars Leaks URC Sprint Car Series president John Zimmerman.

Said tournament coordinator Tom Schmeh, "Things are really getting interesting with this year's event. I hate to see Pursell and Michael withdraw, especially after having Pete Green pull out. But Knoxville fans are well aware of how strong Rager and Thorson can be at the big Marion County Fairgrounds half-mile, so it'll be fun watching them come forward from the tail of the URC heat. The Brodix ToC is all about passing, which is why we have the fully-inverted heats!"

Revised team line-ups for the fourth Brodix Tournament of Champions are available on the track's www.knoxvilleraceway.com web-site under "Events".
