Win-Tron Racing Selects Bradley Riethmeyer for ARCA RE/MAX Series Debut At Illinois State Fairground


LAKEVILLE, Minnesota (August 15, 2008) - - Win-Tron Racing (WTR) announced today that 2006 All-American Driver Challenge Champion Bradley Riethmeyer will take the reins of the team's No. 32 Red Line Oil Dodge Charger for his inaugural ARCA RE/MAX Series (ARS) debut at the Illinois State Fairgrounds for Sunday's Allen Crowe 100, round number 15 on the 2008 schedule.

Riethmeyer, the 2004 ROMCO Super Late Model Champion is a veteran USAC Carolina Ford Focus Midget Series competitor while also holding four NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts in 2007 to his credit with a career best run of 20th at the demanding short track of Bristol Motor Speedway.


Riethmeyer, who hails from Hutto, Texas will further add diversity to his racing resume by competing in the ARCA RE/MAX Series at one of the most anticipated events of the year, the Allen Crowe 100. This weekend's event marks the first of two-consecutive dirt tracks races for the ARCA RE/MAX Series and the official kick-off of the Bill France Triple Crown.


The 24-year old driver is banking on his USAC experience to pay off and guide Win-Tron Racing's No. 32 Dodge entry to their first top-five finish of the 2008 season.


"I'm extremely excited and humbled by this opportunity to drive for Win-Tron Racing at Springfield," explained Riethmeyer, who now calls Hickory, North Carolina home. "Win-Tron Racing is an exceptional organization and I couldn't ask to be associated with a better team for my ARCA debut."


Riethmeyer added, "While I would like to go out and win in my first career start, our main priority is to go out and be competitive and run up front on Sunday afternoon. I know the caliber of equipment this team has and I'm looking forward to experiencing it for myself this weekend. I would be ecstatic to leave Springfield with a top-five finish Sunday."


Win-Tron Racing General Manager, Nate Thiesse commented on the addition of Riethmeyer to the team's roster this weekend at Springfield; "It's refreshing for the series to have a new face and we feel that Bradley has tremendous talent and will do a fine job this weekend. He is no slouch when he competes, so we believe he will fit in nicely here in ARCA's version of the dirt. We're looking for a strong finish this weekend and we feel that Bradley can deliver that on Sunday afternoon."


In last year's Allen Crowe 100, NASCAR Nationwide Series driver James Buescher made his first start on the dirt. Mother Nature washed out qualifying awarding Buescher with an eighth place starting position. During the 100-lap event, the Plano, Texas native showed quick skills on the dirt by wheeling the No. 32 Mercedes Home Dodge to a superb seventh place outing.


Entering Springfield, Win-Tron Racing sits 15th in the ARCA RE/MAX Series owner's standings after 14 races. 110 credits separate car owner Kevin Cywinski from the 14th position held by Andy Hillenburg (No. 11). The team maintained their position from their last outing at Nashville Superspeedway where James Buescher recorded a 17th place finish.

Keith just called and had to tell me he was sitting in the covered grandstands waiting on someone to bring him his "beverage". They made changes after practice and the car turned too good on his qualifying lap. The car will be good in the race.


Live timing and scoring also has audio!
