Schultz set for 2002 ASA sebut

INDIANAPOLIS (April 2, 2002) - Chris Shultz will debut the #04 ASILIMITED Monte Carlo in the 300 at Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, California on April 7, 2002. It is the second of twenty 2002 ASA (American Speed Association) Racing Series events.

Indianapolis-based ASI, Limited will again sponsor the #04 Monte Carlo. As a leader in the commercial glazing industry, ASI, Limited understands the challenges faced in designing and constructing today's complex buildings. "This is a great way to focus our teamwork mentality at ASI, LIMITED. Our entire company and customers have rallied around the #04 Monte Carlo," says ASI's President Ken Smith.

Sporting a new color scheme and a new Lefthander chassis package for the 2002 year, Shultz looks to kick this season off with a successful trip to the West Coast. "We want to compete. That is our main goal. We tested this car last week in Indianapolis (IRP) and it was perfect. Our crew chief, Deon Deneau, hand-built this car. No expenses were spared and no detail overlooked. This truly is a 'state of the art' race car," says Shultz.

"This is by far the best racecar I have built in the 5-plus years I have been involved with ASA," says Daneau. "Everything came together so well. I am excited and can't wait to see it on the track this weekend."

While competing in only eight races to ensure Shultz' rookie eligibility for 2003, the team plans on visiting 12 additional tracks for testing. "By doing this, the team will know how the full season will effect their performance and Chris will get vital seat time" says Deneau, who gained his experience serving as car chief for former ASA National Champion Tim Sauter during a five year period.

ASA officials will wave the green flag for the second time in the 2002 season this Sunday, April 7. The National Network (TNN) will broadcast the 300 live from Irwindale Speedway at 4 p.m. (Eastern).
