Hello Archie

As a die-hard NASCAR (and Roush) fan, I couldn't help but wonder when I saw
the model during the race presentation. Outstanding Job! Kudos to all on
your team.

Keep up the great work

To all,

A highly motivated team here at Roush Industries (based in Livonia,
Michigan) took on a challenge. The challenge was to build a 1/4 scale
NASCAR model under 5 weeks to be used as a display aid during the races. It
was featured on the Today Show on July 5 and was used by NBC during the
Tropicana 400 in Chicago. The car in approximately 90% SLA. The body
(carbon fiber), tires (urethane - foam core), and the frame (urethane -
steel core) are the only parts that where not left as SLA.

The motivating force behind this challenge was Team Caliber.

I believe that NBC, TNT, Team Caliber, or Roush Ind. will be putting
pictures of the model on the internet soon.

Just wanted to inform everyone that there is a SLA model that is being used,
and that you can see it on public television.
