Duno to team with Goossens and Johansson for Nine Hour Season Finale

August 26, 2006, Los Angeles, CA...Milka Duno will be joined by teammates
Marc Goossens and Stefan Johansson for the finale of the 2006 Rolex Sports
Car Series Championship at Miller Motorsports Park this Saturday, Sep 2,
2006. The season-ending event will be the Rolex Series' inaugural race at
the new state-of-the-art road course near Salt Lake City.

The combination of Duno, Goossens and Johansson proved very competitive
earlier this season and hopes are high that the same trio can deliver a
strong finish for the season finale. Duno teamed together with Goossens and
Johansson in this season's Six Hours of The Glen in upstate NY last June.
The #11 CITGO Pontiac Riley effort was very competitive - at times leading -
and running in the top-five for a large part of the race.

Milka Duno
"It will be great to share duties again with Marc and Stefan - they are such
great teammates. A nine hour race on a 4.5-mile, 24-turn course will be
incredibly challenging and I'm sure there will be a lot of drama and
excitement. As the circuit is new to us, in addition to this being our first
nine hour format - the learning curve will be very, very steep - but I have
no doubt that the CITGO Racing crew will shine as they have all season. I
know that Marc, Stefan and I will be doing everything we can to deliver a
great result for our fans and for CITGO."

Marc Goossens
"I'm very happy to be back with Milka and Stefan and with Peter [Baron, Team
Owner] and the whole team with the CITGO car for the Miller race. It's a
nine hour race so it's going to be a long one. We've proven at Watkins Glen
that we can be competitive - we did the same with the race at Laguna Seca -
and obviously the team scored a top ten finish last week. I had a 2nd place
finish myself last weekend at the 24 Hours of Zolder - so we are 100%
motivated to get a good result for the CITGO team."

Stefan Johansson
"I am excited to join the CITGO team again for the Miller race. We have had
some very promising races earlier this year and I hope we can translate that
promise into a solid race result this time. As always in this series, it is
the team that gets it right on the day of the race that will end up on top
of the podium. We have a great group of people in our team and I believe we
have a very good chance to finish on the podium this time."

Race activities leading up to Saturday's race include a Promoter Test Day on
Wednesday, Practice Sessions on Thursday, and Practice Sessions and
Qualifying on Friday. There will be a Final Practice on Saturday morning
just before the 2:00pm ET start of the race.
