Team Midnight Performance today announced that its #79 Acura Integra, sponsored by Midnight Performance, H.A.P. Recycling and ROTA Wheels, will race in the 5th Annual NASA 25 Hours Of Thunderhill, which will take place at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California on December 1, 2007. Team Midnight Performance will combine this event with a fundraiser to benefit the American Brain Tumor Association.

Team Midnight Performance will take on the ultra-competitive E2 class comprised of Mazda, BMW and other Honda racecars. The 25 Hours of Thunderhill will be Team Midnight Performance's inaugural race at a national-level competition, and will be led by team founders Tommy Lo, Paul Ko and John Hu, all of whom are experienced, long-distance drivers. Most recently, the team claimed season championship in the 2006 Northern California Honda Challenge Series. In 2004, the team earned a remarkable second place overall win in the NASA Endurance Championship, with John Hu as their crew chief.

Participating in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill carries special significance to our team, said Lo. We have chosen to support the American Brain Tumor Association by raising money for this important cause. My mother is a brain tumor survivor and her perseverance and fighting spirit inspired our team to organize this fundraiser.

Sponsors who donate more than $25 will have their names displayed on the hood of the #79 racecar. We hope to completely fill our entire hood space to symbolize our collective effort as we race for a cure, added Lo.

25 Hours of Thunderhill is one of the longest endurance races on the planet, said Ko. We are confident that our knowledge and experience in car preparation and pit strategy will give us a competitive advantage.

We have been friends and teammates for over seven years, said Hu. Our team has been racing in the NASA endurance and sprint races with much success for the past three years. Our goal is to build on our recent successes and leverage our skills and expertise to form a highly competitive, world class team.
