Greased Lightning joins Tim Bainey and USAR in 2005

ATLANTA, GA- Greased Lightning, the super strength family of household and automotive cleaning products from HomeCare Labs, announced today it will sponsor Tim Bainey Jr. for the 2005 USAR Hooters ProCup Series season. Bainey Jr. will drive the No. 15 Greased Lightning Car for his family-owned DRT Enterprises Team during the season. Greased Lightning also announced it will be an Official Series Sponsor for the 2005 race season and that the Greased Lightning automotive care products have been named the "Official Cleaners" for the Hooters ProCup Series.

Bainey Jr., a promising young driver, drove in the Hooters ProCup Series for Greased Lightning in three races in 2004 and competed full-time during the 2001 and 2002 seasons.

"I'm honored Greased Lightning has extended our relationship, and I look forward to competing full-time in 2005 with the help of Greased Lightning," said Bainey Jr. "I'm really excited to bring our own team back to the Hooters ProCup Series."

Bainey Jr. will debut the Greased Lightning car in the first race on the USAR Northern Division schedule on April 9, 2005 at the South Boston Speedway in Virginia.

As an Official Series Sponsor for the 2005 season, Greased Lightning will be the presenting title sponsor for two races and the event title sponsor for two races; dates and locations will be determined at a later time. Greased Lightning will also have an in-car camera for each Northern Division and all Championship Series races to allow viewers watching the national race broadcasts on the SPEED Channel to follow the lap-by-lap action from the inside of the No. 15 Greased Lightning car. In addition, all ProCup cars participating in the season will feature the Greased Lightning logo.

"With Greased Lightning's long history of marketing through motorsports, it is indeed an honor that they have picked USAR and the Hooters ProCup Series as one of their primary marketing tools for 2005," said Bruce Baker, USAR sponsorship director.

The Greased Lightning BLAST family of super-strength automotive care products also will be the official cleaning products for the 2005 series. The line, designed to keep cars, tires and engines looking brand new, includes a High Performance Cleaner and Degreaser, Car Wash Concentrate, All Wheel Cleaner, Auto Shop Degreaser and All-Purpose Cleaning Wipes. Greased Lightning BLAST products are available at automotive supply stores and mass merchants nationwide. Product samples will be distributed to attendees at each race during the series and Bainey Jr. and the Greased Lightning Racing Team will make several appearances to meet with fans in race markets throughout the season.

"The 2005 USAR Hooters ProCup season is shaping up to be extremely exciting, and we are proud to be a sponsor," said Helmut Baker, Greased Lightning vice president. "We're always on the lookout for a truly synergistic sponsorship opportunity, and we believe this series provides us with great exposure."
