JASON SHIVELY READY FOR THE 2006 CRA SUPER SERIES SEASON TO BEGIN

Salem, IN (March 8, 2006) -- Spencerville, Indiana's Jason Shively is ready for his sophomore season to begin with the CRA Super Series Presented By Spray Power at the Music City Motorplex in Nashville on Saturday, March 18th. Shively looks to improve upon his rookie season were his Shively Motorsports team, owned by his father Jeff Shively, competed in 10 CRA Super Series events including the All American 400 Weekend in Nashville.

Shively showed he could consistently race from the back of the field towards the front with some great runs at the beginning and end of the 2005 season which netted him a 15th place finish in final 2005 series points. His best race of the 2005 season was at I-70 Speedway on October 1st were he finished 8th in that 150 lapper and was the awarded the top finishing Rookie Of The Race Award. In the nine series points events he raced, Shively improved a total of 60 positions and came from 35th to finish 18th in the All American 300, his first ever visit to that legendary track located at the Nashville Fairgrounds.

"We are ready for the season opener at Nashville," remarked Shively. "We will have to use our back-up motor from last year because of a parts issue on our good motor, but everything else is in place for a good start to the 2006 season. We took the car out to Baer Field Speedway for a good shake down. I am really pumped up for this season!"

"Dennis Drogsvold is my new Crew Chief, I'm really excited about working with him. We have a new Port City car and a well prepared Finishline Fabricating backup, if nothing drastic happens, we plan on making all the CRA Super Series shows this season and have a top ten finish in series points."

Drogsvold has over 25 years of experience in racing, part of which was working with legendary racer Rich Bickle. The team has also secured the help of 6 crewmembers to be a part of the Shively Motorsports team for the 2006 season. With redesigned colors for 2006, the team will have sponsorship help from Softball City, Panacea Ceramic & Powder Coating, Performance Sign Design, Pro-Claim Racing Engines by Tom Graves and Knipscheer Collision Center.
