Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports Announces 40th Anniversary

Homestead, FL (November 19, 2004) -- The Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports, Inc. (WAM, Inc.) is pleased to announce the celebration of its 40th Anniversary in 2005.

The charity organization has evolved greatly through the years. Established in 1965 as the Grand National Racing Wives Auxiliary, the name was later changed to The Winston Cup Racing Wives Auxiliary. In 1996, The Busch Series Ladies Association was formed to support the Busch Series in the same manner as the Winston Cup Racing Wives Auxiliary supported the Cup circuit. Finally in 2004, the groups combined their efforts and also included the ladies from the Craftsman Truck Series. From this combination came the new organization- The Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports.

The Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports' mission is to enrich the sport of NASCAR® with a commitment to its families through fundraising and wellness programs for those requiring medical or financial assistance. In addition, the Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports, Inc. helps support organizations with likeminded missions and purposes.

In addition, the Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports, Inc. has been honored with the designation of "Proud Charity of NASCAR®". NASCAR® and the Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports, Inc. have the combined experience of over 90 years in motorsports. These long traditions of creating exciting and safe racing and helping racing families in need makes the partnership between NASCAR® and the Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports, Inc. a winning combination.

The Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports will celebrate its 40th Anniversary with many special events in 2005. For more information on the Women's Auxiliary of Motorsports or how to join please call 704-455-9299 or log onto www.waminc.org.
