INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 5, 2002) -- Paul Romine will take over the driving duties full-time for the John Mitchell-owned Montana Express Top Fuel Dragster, beginning at the NHRA season ending Auto Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif. The team will use the Pomona event to prepare for a run at the 2003 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Top Fuel championship.

"My ultimate dream in drag racing has always been to compete full-time in NHRA and be competitive with a chance for the NHRA Top Fuel championship," said Romine. "I think John gives me the best shot at that goal and I'm looking forward to racing at Pomona as we prepare for an all-out assault on the 2003 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Top Fuel championship."

Romine is a three-time IHRA Top Fuel champion, winning titles in 1997, 1998, and 2000. His best NHRA event finish came at the 1998 NHRA all-star event in Rockingham, N.C. where he lost in the final to Kenny Bernstein. He has numerous NHRA semifinal finishes and has NHRA career bests of 4.648-seconds at 320.28 mph.

Prior to his association with Mitchell, Romine drove for NHRA Top Fuel driver Doug Herbert in 2001 and 2002. Romine owned his own Top Fuel operation from 1997-2000.
