FORT WORTH, Texas (May 28, 2008): The following is a statement from Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage regarding today's decision by the Speedway Motorsports, Inc. Board of Directors to select Marcus Smith, who held the SMI position of executive vice president of national sales & marketing, as the new president of SMI and Lowe's Motor Speedway.

"Marcus Smith is a great choice the perfect choice to lead this company into our future. He has worked hard to earn the right to also serve as president of Lowe's Motor Speedway as well. He single handedly pioneered naming rights when he signed Lowe's Home Improvement stores as the title sponsor of Lowe's Motor Speedway in 1999. And it has been gratifying to watch his leadership skills grow and improve through the years.

"Marcus is a good, Christian family man and his word is his bond. I'm proud that a man of integrity will head up this company. Our company is loaded deep with talent, and we can all work with Marcus to continue to be the leaders in American motorsports."
