RACING FOR A REASON AT FARLEY SPEEDWAY

STATESVILLE, N.C. (July 10, 2007) -- On July 12th NASCAR stars Ray Evernham, Scott Riggs, Erin Crocker, Bob Dillner and Andy Petree will be Racing for a Reason at Farley Speedway in Iowa. This hometown short track night of action will feature the stars in a dirt modified race with a portion of the night's proceeds benefiting Evernham's foundation, Racing for a Reason.

Racing for a Reason's mission is to help those in need and fund the ongoing research to find a cure for cancer. The main beneficiary of the foundation is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a cause close to home for Evernham as his own son Ray J is a leukemia survivor.

In addition to the feature racing event there will be more Thursday night fun including a silent auction filled with NASCAR memorabilia and a VIP meet and greet option. Gates open at 3:30 p.m. and general admission tickets will run $20 per person. The first 200 guest through the gates will receive autographs from event VIP's Ray Evernham, Scott Riggs, Erin Crocker, Bob Dillner and Andy Petree. For further event information visit Farley Speedways' website at www.simmonspromotionsinc.com/newsroom.php?newsid=205.

This event is one of many fundraising efforts in 2007 that Evernham's foundation will partake in to support their mission. For more information on how to catch Racing for a Reason's draft, visit www.racingforareason.org.
