HANTZ GROUP TO SPONSOR BOTH ARCA RE/MAX SERIES EVENTS AT MIS IN 2005

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Hantz Group, a full-service financial holding company based in Southfield, Michigan, will sponsor the June 17 and August 19 ARCA RE/MAX Series races at Michigan International Speedway in 2005, officials at both companies announced today. Both races will be called the Hantz Group 200. MIS has reached terms with the Hantz Group and will be negotiating a finalized contract in the coming weeks.

"We are thrilled to have another Michigan-based partner on board at MIS," said MIS Director of Marketing Keith Karbo. "They take a personal touch with their over 30,000 clients in Michigan and Ohio, much like we do with the thousands of guests that visit MIS events each summer, so it's a good fit for both of us."

Along with the sponsorship of both ARCA RE/MAX Series races at MIS, the Hantz Group will also sponsor ARCA RE/MAX Series cars in competition at both MIS events this year as well as 16 other series events throughout the season. Cunningham Motorsports will field the Hantz Group Dodges in 2005 with driver Mike Guerity from Rochester Hills, Michigan, and veteran crew chief Eddie Sharp heading up the effort.

"With MIS just an hour away from our home office, our staff and clients are very excited to be a part of the great events at our hometown superspeedway," said Aaron Thierry, Vice President for Hantz Racing. "Getting involved in sponsoring the Toledo race last year really opened up our eyes to the benefits of being a title sponsor for an event. Along with our clients, many of the teams, sponsors, drivers and fans of the ARCA RE/MAX Series are based near our offices in Michigan and Ohio, so it just seems like a natural fit to partner with MIS."

Tickets are on sale now for all 2005 events at MIS, including the June 17 and August 19 Hantz Group 200 and both NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races. Tickets can be purchased now by visiting www.MISpeedway.com, or by calling the MIS ticket hotline at 1-800-354-1010.
