Momentum Race Group to toss in the Camaro on the Koni Challenge!

PRESS RELEASE:

DALLAS, Texas - Momentum Race Group is pleased to announce it will be fielding a new two car team for the 2009 Grand-Am KONI Challenge competition. Featuring the new Riley Technologies-built Camaro, the team is putting together key personnel to prepare for the 2009 season and beyond.

"With times as tough as they are, I can sleep well at night knowing that we have not only chosen what I feel to be one of the premier race cars in the Grand-Am KONI Challenge GS class, but also one which is as all-American as the Camaro," said Ray Butler, President of Momentum Race Group.

Momentum Race Group will begin testing cars in September in preparation for its October debut at VIR.

"Being one of the first teams to field the new Riley Camaro, as well as with the talent we are assembling, we hope to have a strong showing starting from our first race and to be contending for the 2010 championship," said Jordon Musser, Executive Vice President of Momentum Race Group and Lead Driver.

Momentum is finalizing its driver lineup, but is expected to include Musser, Robb Holland and Jeff Altenburg.

"Jordon Musser was my first choice for Executive Vice President and Lead Driver because of his uncanny attention to detail and of course his ability to hustle a car around a race track," Butler said.

Robb Holland, a veteran of the SPEED World Challenge, will co-drive the first car with Musser.

"Robb is a great driving talent, an all around great guy and good face for the team," Musser said. "His presence will be invaluable in helping us acquire sponsors and his skills behind the wheel will keep us up front."

Momentum is excited about the opportunity of having Jeff Altenburg be the lead driver in the second car.

"Jeff has been a champion at all levels of motorsports and has great experience at setting up and developing race cars. We will be relying on that experience to help us make our Camaros competitive straight out of the box," Musser said.

Momentum is hoping to announce its finalized driver lineup within a few weeks. Momentum is also in talks with several veteran KONI Sports Car Challenge crew chiefs and strategists to make sure the team has strong leadership on race weekends.

The team will be busy in the off season with testing, solidifying driver line ups, sponsors and key personnel with in the team for the end of 2009 and into 2010. Several positions are available. Interested parties should contact Momentum Race Group.

Damn... Jeff Altenburg always seems to get to race badass versions of my car. I'd love to get behind the wheel of one of these beasts.

That's amazing. I can't believe a spoiler like that isn't available already.

This is awesome news. The KONI Challenge is great exposure for the Camaro and a much more tasteful choice than NASCAR.

Yeah notice how the guys who professionally go fast don't shove 22" boat anchors in their wheel wells. This car is going to look good on the track.
