Nazareth, PA - August 25, 2003- Tyler Walker and the R.E. Technologies Racing team claimed another top-ten finish Sunday afternoon at Nazareth Speedway in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The team finished in 8th position in their final pavement race of the year.

Tyler Walker qualified the Curb-Agajanian-R.E. Technologies Racing entry 10th quick during Saturday's qualifying session. On Sunday, Walker moved the car up to 9th by lap 13. Walker passed Jay Drake for 8th position on lap 40 only to be passed by Bryan Tyler four laps later. With only four laps to go, Walker passed Jason McCord and held on to finish 8th.

"I learned a lot today," said the driver of the Curb Records sponsored J&J #35. "The team is really working well together. Everyone is sticking their head in there and taking care of business. I wish this wasn't our last pavement race of the year. We will have to wait until next year and hopefully get our first pavement win."

Tyler Walker is in 8th place in the points. He trails Paul White by three points and 6th place Brian Tyler by four points.

The R.E. Technologies Racing team has three more dirt races remaining on their 2003 USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown Series schedule. The team will be at DuQuoin on August 31, Tulsa, Oklahoma on September 14 and in Syracuse October 10-11.

"I am looking forward to returning to the dirt," added Walker. "I have a couple of those under my belt there so, hopefully can move up and finish in the top five in points."

TED HORN 100

Tyler Walker and the R.E. Technologies Racing team will return to the dirt at the Ted Horn 100 Sunday afternoon at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds in DuQuoin, Illinois. Two weeks ago, the team claimed their first podium finish of the year on dirt at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. They hope to repeat the feat in DuQuoin.

"I am getting more comfortable driving the dirt Silver Crown car," stated Walker. "If we qualify good and are able to run up front, we should have a good finish."

The team finished 7th at DuQuoin last season and 2nd in 2001 with Jerry Coons Jr. behind the wheel.
