16 September 1997


DAYTONA BEACH, FL - The NASCAR Goody's Dash Series will welcome a new
competitor to it's ranks September 20, when British racing champion
Chris Hall, 37, makes his NASCAR touring series debut by competing in
the American General Finance 100 at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory,

The London, England native, now residing in Dawsonville, Ga., brings
with him a dazzling resume of European racing experience that includes
more than 70 victories and three championships in Formula Ford,
Formula Renault, Formula Three and Sedan divisions. Since moving to
the U.S. in 1993, Hall has continued to keep his championship form by
winning the SCCA Improved Touring National Championship in 1995.

Most days you'll find Hall applying the skills he's learned since
beginning his racing career in 1980, teaching his championship
techniques at the Road Atlanta Racing School in Gainesville, Ga. But
on Saturday nights, Hall learns the subtleties of stock car racing at
Lanier National Speedway where has been competing regularly this year,

Medical Associates/Respironics sponsorship. In addition to the Hickory
Motor Speedway event, Hall's 1997 plans include competing in the
American General Finance 200 at the Concord Motorsports Park in
Concord, N.C. November 1. In 1998, Hall plans to tackle the full
schedule of NASCAR Goody's Dash Series events, in hopes of achieving
his next goal, becoming the first Englishman to win a NASCAR touring
series championship.
