New Jersey Motorsports Park Bolsters Management Team Managing Director, General Manager in Place

Millville, N.J. (January 22, 2008) -- New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) has added significant Motorsports experience to the team, with the appointment of Ken Grammer, Managing Director and Donald Fauerbach, General Manager. Both strengthen NJMP's management team with a wealth of competitive racing, team ownership and operational experience.

Grammer has wide ranging Motorsports industry experience. He is the former Director of Operations for SCCA Pro Racing and its World Challenge, North American Championship and Miata Cup series. Ken is also the former President of Synergy Racing, winners of the 2005 Grand-Am GT Drivers Championship, as well as President and Founder of the United States Endurance Racing Association (USERA). Behind the wheel, Ken has driven in SCCA Regional and National events, as well as a number of Motorola Cup (currently Grand-Am Cup) pro events. As Managing Director, he will be responsible for the overall operations of NJMP, including staffing, accounting, security and day-to-day operations.

Fauerbach is the founder of the NJMP Green Flag Committee, and has been part of the team since the beginning. In Motorsports, he owned and operated MAURTCO Motorsports, Inc., with teams competing in ARCA and NASCAR stock car and truck racing series, and raced motorcycles professionally. Donald's close relationships with New Jersey legislators and the State House during his tenure as the Executive Director of the New Jersey Conference of Mayors since 1992, and his strong environmental background, has proven invaluable to NJMP. Fauerbach was presented with the 2007 Millville Chamber of Commerce "Pride in Millville Award." In his role as General Manger, Donald will oversee sales, marketing, public affairs, participant/customer relations, compliance, commercial affairs and future developments.

"We're thrilled to add Ken and expand Donald's role on the NJMP team. Both bring with them invaluable experience in both management and Motorsports," states Lee Brahin, managing partner of NJMP. "On the development side we've hit top speed and things are progressing very well. Now on the personnel side, we're right on target to drop the first green flag at NJMP this summer."

About New Jersey Motorsports Park The New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP), featuring Thunderbolt Raceway, is a $150 million world class motorsports complex located on 700 acres of land adjacent to the Millville, NJ Airport. Members and guests of NJMP will enjoy road, oval and off-road racing venues, as well as luxurious spectator and participant facilities including VIP suites, shade tree garages, event garages and trackside villas.

Like its sister property, Virginia International Raceway, NJMP will mix world-class racing facilities with high-end hospitality venues. NJMP, however, will include luxury condos, multiple hotels and restaurants at varying price points, educational and research facilities in conjunction with Rowan University, classic car galleries and a clubhouse with pool, fitness and tennis facilities. In a nod to one of the seminal characters in the racing world, NJMP christened the Thunderbolt Raceway media center and scoring tower the "Chris Economaki Tower" in honor of the New Jersey native.

Scheduled to open in June 2008, it will be the only US motorsports complex with such diverse venues as two road courses, driver training and skid pad facility, 3/4 mile tri-oval, high performance karting facility, and an off-road vehicle course for extreme sports -- all situated in a country club setting. In addition to the motorsports attractions, NJMP will also include a conference center, an aircraft and automobile museum as well as diverse retail shopping experiences.
