Julien Jousse Joins Eddie Sharp Racing For Daytona ARCA 200

DENVER, N.C. (December 11, 2012) – Frenchman Julien Jousse, 26, will join Eddie
Sharp Racing (ESR) for the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Racing Series
season opening event at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Saturday, February
16, 2013. The race will mark Jousse’s ARCA Racing Series’ debut, and just his second
start in a stock car. Jousse competed in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West event at
All-American Speedway in Roseville, Calif. In October 2012. With 15 years racing
experience, Jousse is an accomplished driver with race wins, pole awards and championships
in everything from go-karts to the European Le Mans Series. In 2011, Jousse won
the LMP1 Class Championship in the European Le Mans Series.

“I am very excited to join Eddie Sharp Racing,” commented Jousse. “They have great
equipment and more importantly great people, which I believe is the key to success
in stock car racing. We have a lot to learn with the style of racing, but I am
confident we will be okay with the experienced team at ESR. I can’t wait to get
to Daytona.”

Jousse will make his debut with ESR during the ARCA Racing Series test session at
Daytona International Speedway, December 14-16, 2012.

“Julien is a talented driver with proven success on a world platform,” commented
team owner Eddie Sharp. “To have a driver of Julien’s caliber recognize ESR’s
success in the ARCA Racing Series and choose our team to kick off his stock car
career is a real honor. We’re very excited to work with him during the test session
this week and we’re looking forward to the race in February.”

A proven contender in the ARCA Racing Series, Sharp joined forces with driver Justin
Lofton to win the 2009 series championship. ESR has proven to be a top team for
developing young talent for NASCAR competition. Drivers like Justin Lofton, Michael
McDowell, Scott Speed and Nelson Piquet Jr. have all piloted ESR entries in the
ARCA Series and have found success in the form of championships, rookie of the year
titles and race wins.

The Daytona ARCA 200 will air live on SPEED on Saturday, February 16, 2013. Check
