USPRO Cup series officials have announced that Paul Bailey was appointed to interim Technical Director for the series and will finish off this season in charge of the series tech staff.

"Paul comes to us with impeccable references and a solid reputation as an honest and hard working individual. We were glad to have him come aboard as a USPRO official. His vast years of experience with super late models, ASA and ARCA car's I am sure will be appreciated by our teams," commented Ron Varney Jr. USPRO President.

Bailey is a former team member and was Crew Chief for TruMark Motorsport's. His experience has included all aspects of race preparation for TruMarks super late models, ASA and ARCA superspeedway cars. As a member of the TruMark team he provided 10 years of loyal service and has been an integral part of the success of driver Phil Massuch.

" I am to the stage in my life I want to head in another direction. I have been a race team member for years and now want to focus my attention in another direction as a series official. I am really looking forward to working with the USPRO staff, members and drivers this season. I can appreciate their distinction as professionals and I will surely uphold my end to maintain their excellent reputation," Bailey commented. Bailey will assume his Tech Director duties effective immediately.

USPRO also has publicly squelched rumors about its Kalamazoo date. " Somehow or another someone took to mean that our moving the Chris Throgmartin 50 race to Spartan was an indication we are not running Kalamazoo Speedway on the 20th of September. This is simply not true. We will be at Kalamazoo and it will be a full point's race. All of us at USPRO are looking forward to that race and as their headlining show that night will provide the race fans with some exciting action. We are proud to be able to carry the USPRO Banner into Kalamazoo and the Western part of Michigan."

In addition to the September race date, USPRO Cup has announced two additional dates. USPRO Cup will hold their season finale championship race at Tri-City October 5th. The 50 lap event at the " Trick Track " will close out the historical inaugural season for the new series.

Also announced this week is the series 1st Annual USPRO Cup Awards Banquet. The event will take place on November 22nd and will be held in Lansing, Michigan. For further information about the banquet and for ticket information, please visit the official website of USPRO Cup at www.usproracing.com.
