Greenville, NC -- August 28th, 2006

ROAR Racing with Compass360 is proud to welcome Travis Walker and David Ciekiewicz, both of Toronto, as drivers of the team's #63 Mazda RX-8 for the Miller Motorsports Park event.

"We're thrilled to add these two guys to our driver line-up," said Rob Whitener, ROAR's Team Principal. "They're top-caliber guys who have proven themselves in this series."

Walker has piloted an Acura RSX-S to a top-five qualifying position in seven races so far this year, and is keen to work with the Mazda's rear-drive platform. "The RX-8 has been really competitive in Grand Am Cup," he said. "I'm excited to have the opportunity to race in one with ROAR."

Ciekiewicz, who was most recently in a Grand Am race at VIR's season opener, had good results in the Compass360 BMWs last year. "Miller looks to be a real challenge, with so many corners," he enthused. "I think it'll be a real driver's track, and perfect for the Mazda."

Walker and Ciekiewicz join Karl Thomson and Billy Johnson, who will drive the team's #62 car. "We've now got great drivers who can make the most of the changes we've made to the cars over the past few months," said Whitener. "Miller should be great fun."

The Miller Grand Am Cup race begins at 2:45pm on Friday, September 1st, and will be televised tape-delayed on SPEED Channel, September 23rd at 1:00pm.
