NOBLESVILLE, Indiana, May 30, 2008 - Bryan Clauson Racing (BCR) and Levi Jones Racing today announced they will partner to field a non-wing sprint car program to assist in the development of drivers aspiring to compete at the USAC National level.

To kick-off this program, BCR and Levi Jones Racing are proud to announce that 16-year old Shane Golobic will debut the Jones/Clauson Racing entry during the USAC Eastern Swing the first week of June 2008.

"Shane is exactly the type of driver we hope to work with in this program as he progresses his way towards a fulltime USAC National deal", said Tim Clauson, driver development manager, BCR.

The long term goal of BCR was to include sprint cars in its stable. It has been an aspiration of Levi Jones to own a team that could provide opportunities to talented drivers as they gain experience driving non-wing sprint cars. With the combined knowledge of both Jones/Clauson Racing outside the race car relative to team management, media presence, driver coaching, and Levi's accomplishments in the race car, both parties feel this partnership is truly a match made in heaven.. The Jones/Clauson venture is not a "rental program" but a true driver development program both on and off the track. The team will target talented drivers they believe can put the car in victory lane on any given night.

"I wish I had someone when I was 16 years old to teach me the right way to do this. My goal with this program is to contribute to the young talent coming up in the sport by accelerating their learning curve. I am excited to give back to a sport that I have such a passion for", said Levi Jones. "Getting to work with Tim and Bryan on this project is just icing on the cake, as it's obvious the processes they have developed are effective."
