LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. -- Danny Rowe's first-year Pro Modified operation continues to grow and get stronger with today's announcement of a multi-year associate sponsorship with Gainsborough Capital, a California-based global investment advisory firm.

"We are very fortunate to have a company like Gainsborough Capital work with us. We know they love the sport of drag racing as much as we do, and we will do everything we can to represent them in the same professional manner as they represent their clients." said Rowe, who has competed in a combined six NHRA Pro Mod Challenge, IHRA, and American Drag Racing League events this season.

Rowe is enjoying a standout season thus far in 2006. After taking the entire 2005 season off, he debuted his new team (led by crew chief Jimmy Rector) and new car (a '63 Corvette with backing from Red Line Oil) in February, where he promptly qualified for his first-ever American Drag Racing League event and reached the second round in the Pro Extreme competition. The team has gotten stronger as the season has progressed, with the highlight thus far being a runner-up finish at the NHRA Pro Mod event in Houston.

Rowe is currently in second place in the NHRA's AMS Staff Leasing Pro Mod Challenge points standings (trailing only double event-winner Jay Payne) and has also scored points on both the IHRA and ADRL circuits. In his career, he has won three NHRA Pro Mod events in six final- round appearances.

Gainsborough Capital founder and Managing Director Jean Tardy- Vallernaud feels that the choice to go with Danny Rowe Racing is another example of how the Pro Modified class is attractive to corporate America. "This is a natural choice for us because the category reaches a demographic profile that lends favorable for our company. I am very anxious to kick off the program; it is truly exciting for us to be involved with this motorsport, and we look forward to a longstanding relationship."
