Passmore focuses on better finish at Lanier than at Toledo

TOLEDO, OH – May 22, 2005 – Christi Passmore did not have a good day in the Hantz Group 200 at Toledo Speedway Sunday.

The Oklahoma driver started well in tenth spot in her GAP Roofing-Asphalt & Fuel Supply Ford Taurus, but she was plagued with an ill-handling car all day, finally placing 20th.

“The car was tight, and then it was loose,” said a disappointed Passmore after the race, which went through lengthy delays due to inclement weather. “The changes we made during the race just didn’t work because it was cloudy and raining one minute, and then sunny and warm the next.”

“But I like racing at Toledo,” she continued. “We just didn’t have a good day.”

Due to rain canceling regular qualifying, drivers in this fifth ARCA RE/MAX Series race started as per their 2005 points, and although Passmore started 10th in the 35-car field, the rest of the day went downhill from that, including a tussle with the wall on lap 105.

The team will pack up, regroup, and head off to Georgia for the running of the Williams Brothers 200 at Lanier National Speedway, to be held May 28.

“We’ll just pick it up and get ready for Lanier, and stay focused,” she added.

Driver hopes to maintain momentum after good Salem showing

Pryor, OK (May 12, 2005) – With a strong finish at Salem Speedway, and a new blue paint job on her GAP Roofing – Asphalt & Fuel Supply Ford Taurus, Christi Passmore www.christipassmoremotorsports.com hopes to continue on a positive note for the upcoming Harley-Davidson of Cincinnati 150 at Kentucky Speedway May 14, the fourth race in the 2005 ARCA RE/MAX Series.

“We had a terrific run at Salem,” stated the 23-year old Passmore, “and we want to keep up the momentum. And with the new car color, we are hoping it brings us more good luck.”

Starting from 27th spot in the Salem event, Passmore drove a solid race for her best showing in this year’s ARCA RE/MAX Series. She finished eighth in the points standings in 2003 and 2004, and is presently 13th in the points chase for 2005 after three events.

“I have some definite goals in mind this year, and one is to finish as well as possible,” she said. “We want to become a force in the ARCA RE/MAX Series.”

After practice and the draw for qualifying Friday, May 13, teams will take place in the ARCA RE/MAX Series Pork Pole Qualifying session at 9:45 a.m. May 14. The 150-lap main event around the 1.5-mile Kentucky tri-oval is scheduled to start at 3:00 p.m.

Passmore putting Nashville behind her, and is gearing up for Salem

Nashville, TN (March 26, 2005) - Christi Passmore, driver of the GAP Roofing and Asphalt & Fuel Supply Ford, was a guest of host Larry Woody this morning on Nashville’s 106.7 The FAN Radio broadcasting live from the Nashville Superspeedway. When asked about her less-than-ideal starting position Passmore stated, “We would rather be starting from up front, it’s safer, but we’ll go out and do the best we can”.

Unfortunately, Passmore fought an ill-handling car all weekend. She started from the 31st position in the PFG Lester 150 at Nashville Superspeedway in the ARCA RE/MAX Series. The GAP Roofing and Asphalt & Fuel Supply team worked extremely hard in practice and before qualifying to make the car drivable. She made a hard charge driving up through the field and was 17th when a left rear tire went down and ended her day. “This just wasn’t our weekend, the car ended up really fast,” said a disappointed Passmore after the race, the second in this year’s ARCA RE/MAX Series. “I’m looking forward to Salem, it’s probably my favorite short track,” added the 21-year old Passmore.

The team will head home to Oklahoma, regroup, and start concentrating on getting ready for the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200, the next event of the ARCA RE/MAX Series, slated for April 24 at Salem Speedway.

Christi Passmore Ready for Nashville Superspeedway

While most 21-year old girls are busy finishing college, Passmore is learning her skills on the race track.

Nashville, TN (March 24, 2005) - Christi Passmore, from Oklahoma driver of the GAP Roofing and Asphalt & Fuel Supply Ford is ready for this weekend's ARCA RE/MAX Series PFG Lester 150 race at Nashville Superspeedway.

Christi's best career qualifying record was at Nashville Superspeedway in 2003 when she qualified second. She finished fifth at Nashville in 2004.

While most 21-year old girls are busy finishing college and planning what they want to do in life, Christi Passmore is spending her days in the race shop working on race cars. And her weekends are spent at auto racing tracks driving some of the fastest stock cars in the world. Passmore was raised around race tracks and Sprint Cars. Father Glen Passmore spent several years in auto racing, and at the early age of five, Christi knew she wanted to follow in her father's footsteps.

When Christi was 12 years old her father bought her a minisprint and disassembled the small race car. He told Christi if she wanted to race she had to put the car back together, along with convincing her mother she wanted to get behind the wheel. According to Christi putting the car together was the easier task to achieve. From 1994 until 1996, the spunky 12-year old competed in minisprints at the Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1997 Christi scored her first feature win and finished the season fourth in points.

From the age of 16 until she was 20 years old, Christi competed around the world against some of the most talented Sprint Car racers in the sport. She became the first female to compete in Sprint Cars at Tulsa, Oklahoma, Sedalia, Missouri, and Little Rock, Arkansas. Christi competed in the coveted World of Outlaws division (WOO) where she qualified for the Knoxville Nationals twice and finished tenth out of 104 cars in 2001.

Throughout her five years of Sprint Car racing, Christi accumulated 17 wins in both the United States and New Zealand.

Following her years of Sprint Car successes, Christi made the decision to continue on the path toward her ultimate motorsports goal - to race in NASCAR's top division, the Winston Cup Series, now the Nextel Cup Series. Christi knew that she had to start racing full-bodied, fendered stock cars on speedways to get the proper experience. She chose the ARCA Re/Max Series to gain experience and compete on some of the same tracks with the NASCAR Nextel Cup cars.

Christi competed in the entire 2003 schedule while contending for the Rookie of the Year title. Throughout the 2003 season Passmore earned one top-five finish and seven top-ten finishes en route to her eighth-place points finish and runner-up in Rookie of the Year honors. In 2004 she continued to improve with five top-five finishes and ten top-ten finishes.

The ARCA RE/MAX Series PFG Lester 150 race on Nashville Superspeedway's 1.33-mile concrete oval is scheduled for Saturday March 26, with the green flag dropping at 12:30 p.m. CT, and LIVE coverage of the race on SPEED Channel.

The RE/MAX Series cars take to the speedway Friday at 11:00 a.m. for a two-hour practice session prior to Pork Pole Award Qualifying at 4:30 p.m. to determine the 41-car starting line up.
