STEVE MOENCK TO RACE FOR POINTS LEADER TK RACING AT COLUMBUS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

Salem, IN (May 31, 2005) --TK Racing, the current leader in CRA Super Series Owner Points, announced today that Mokena, Illinois native Steve Moenck would be the team's driver at this Saturday's CRA Super Series event at Columbus Motor Speedway. The team's regular CRA Super Series driver, Eddie Hoffman, will be driving for TK Racing in the NASCAR AutoZone Midwest Series event at Colorado National Speedway, which is also this Saturday.

"We had planned to run both series from the start of the season, but we weren't sure which race Eddie would drive this Saturday until today," remarked Tom Kmak, owner of TK Racing. "We had already committed to do the Colorado NASCAR show, including purchasing plane tickets and getting hotel rooms. We really hate to not have Eddie at Columbus, but he has a lot of experience on the bigger tracks, and really likes racing on them. We are confident Steve will do a great job for us at Columbus this weekend."

Kmak went on to say, "We will be running the rest of the CRA Super Series schedule in an effort to win the Owners Championship. This will be the only event that Eddie will miss, so our goal is to also try and win the drivers championship as well, we'll just have to do it on one less race than everyone else!"

Moenck finished 7th in CRA Super Series points in 2004 and captured his first CRA Super Series victory at Shady Bowl Speedway in May of last year. Moenck has raced in only two CRA Super Series events this season for his own team while seeking sponsorship dollars to run the rest of the season. Moenck finished 22nd in the season opener at Anderson Speedway after a broken rear end. He was the fast qualifier at the series Indianapolis Raceway Park event and finished 4th in that race.

The Sizzle Marine 125 Presented By EMH&T at Columbus Motor Speedway this Saturday, June 4th, will be part of the 3rd Annual Buckeye Bash. Pits will open at 1pm Ohio time. Practice will begin at 3:30pm, with qualifying at 5:30pm. This race program will begin at 7pm. Sunday, June 5th is the rain date. More information is available at www.craracing.net.
