PT to Debut at Daytona

Sponsors of Paul Tracyís #34 Chevrolet: Sport Clips and American Crew

After over a year of speculation as to whether or not Paul would make his way into NASCAR, he will make his debut on Saturday, February 18, 2006, when the Busch Series takes to the 2.5-mile tri-oval of Daytona International Speedway. It will not however be the Champ Car starís first trip to Daytona, as he tested the speedway in December in an ARCA car and followed that up with the official NASCAR test in January. He also competed in the Rolex 24 Hour race, where he started in the 12th position and was leading the race by lap 20.

Although PT holds Champ Car records with 30 wins and over 4000 laps led, he will have rookie status when he arrives at the track on Wednesday for his first NASCAR Busch Series practice.

Paul: ďI canít wait to get out there and start mixing it up, Iím looking forward to my first experience in a stock car at Daytona. I am going to have a lot to learn as the race goes on, but our car was good at the test and I feel like we have a good chance of running well for Sport Clips and American Crew. Daytona is a historic track and I canít think of a better place to start my NASCAR career. There is a lot of history there and it is exciting to think that Iíll be a part of it. I thank Sport Clips and American Crew for giving me this opportunity.Ē
