The Grimm Racing Team is determined to have a strong finish in the
NASCAR Camping World East/West Challenge at Iowa Speedway on Sunday,
May17th. Eddie MacDonald is confident the team will be much better prepared
this year to post a top five finish in the Long John Silver's 200 presented
by A&W Restaurants.

   "Last year we went there with a new car and never really got the set-up
right but we were still able to stay in contention until we were involved in
the wreck. The track was new to us last year and we learned a lot, so this
year we really feel confident in setting the car up to be there at the end."

    The team is pleased to announce that NEMO, New England Mechanical
Overlay from Pembroke, New Hampshire, will be the primary sponsor for the
race. MacDonald said, "I am so happy that NEMO is back with us this year.
They have been a huge help to us in the past and it will be great to have
them on the hood of the car. We can't thank Ron and Becky Bennett enough for
all they have done for this team."

    The race is the first this season pitting the best teams and drivers in
the East and West on the fast, high-banked seven-eighths of a mile oval.
MacDonald knows the significance of posting a good finish saying, "The track
is just fun to drive and is really a driver's track. It is very fast and
with the high banking in the turns you have to focus all the time. With the
West drivers there, the race should be real exciting since everyone wants to
do well to prove we are the best."

    The event is scheduled for 200 laps and that will certainly provide
some added excitement with MacDonald saying, "Racing 200 laps will be nice
because everyone will have to pit for tires and fuel so that will probably
play a big part in the finish. It will be interesting to see how the pit
strategy plays out."

    MacDonald is currently fifth in the points after two races, posting a
third place finish in the season opener at Greenville-Pickens and a
disappointing twelfth at Tri-County. Due to the abbreviated schedule this
season, every race is important in the quest for the championship. MacDonald
feels a solid run in Iowa is essential saying, "Our goal each race is to
finish in the top five and if we do that consistently, we put ourselves in
contention to win a race. Iowa will be a true test with the caliber of the
competition that will be there. I feel very confident that the NEMO Chevy
will have a strong run."

    The Speed Channel will televise the race on May 28th at 3 p.m.
