Rick Turner With Great Deals Will Run For The 2005 CRA Super Series Championship

Jim Mougeotte, President and CEO, of Great Deals of Indiana announced today that Great Deals of Indiana will be back as the primary sponsor for the Great Deals # 26 Rick Turner Ford. Mougeotte stated..."We have been just so pleased with the association with Rick Turner and his team that it was a "no brainer" to come back for our fourth year as the primary sponsor" "Three years ago we joined up with Rick and had a three year plan to grow this team to a major factor in the CRA Super Series...We have now done this and its time to move this effort to the next level".

Turner last year teamed with Dewaine McGunegill of McGunegill Engine Performance of Muncie, Indiana to spearhead the development of a new sealed engine for the CRA Super Series...That relationship produced the best finish ever for the Great Deals # 26 Rick Turner Monte Carlo as Turner finished a sixth overall in the 2004 point standings. From that performance came many requests for McGunegill to build a Ford powerplant. Over the Winter McGunegil Engine Performance and the Great Deals team decided to build and test the new engine and to debut the new engine in an all new Great Deals Ford for 2005.

Turner said..."We had a great year last year and the McGunegill Sealed Engine did everything it was to do and we finished the highest we have ever finished in the series. This year we will be running for the Championship".

The Great Deals # 26 Rick Turner Ford Taurus will be carrying the sponsorship of McGunegill Engine Performance, AJ's High Speed Graphics, Anderson NAPA, Ricks Service Center, Bailey's Muncie/Yorktown Dry Cleaners, Gaddis Chrysler Dodge, with special thanks to Tom Woodring Painting. Turner said..."Without the help of our sponsors we would not be in a position to run this series...I want to thank them all for the confidence they have had in myself and the Great Deals racing team".

Great Deals is the largest Direct Mail Coupon Magazine Company in the Midwest and is now direct mailing nearly 7 million magazines a year. "We have been very lucky to grow to the point we are and it is with great pride that we sponsor the Rick Turner Racing Team" Mougeotte said.....
