KINETIC ANNOUNCES SAID HEAD PERFORMANCE LINE AT DAYTONA

Daytona Beach, Fla. - Kinetic Motorsports announced an expansion of its relationship with motorsports ace Boris Said with the formation of a new company jointly owned by Said and Kinetic Motorsports -- Said Head Performance. The company's aim is to design, develop and market a range of after-market parts for both Street and Motorsport applications.

After many years of competing at the highest levels of motorsports around the world and now entering 2007 with his own No Fear Racing SOBE Energy drink NASCAR Nextel Cup team to debut at the Bud Shoot Out, Said has seen and experienced many different performance components supplied by many companies. As a result, Said was consistently asked by fans and club racers which products and manufacturers he would recommend for different applications to improve handling and performance.

Said and Kinetic co-owner and long time teammate Nic Jonsson have developed racing components through their various alliances with manufacturers. Now the duo will be developing a line of private label components manufactured by both existing product providers and Kinetic Speed Shop, the parent company of Kinetic Motorsports.

Said Head Performance has already been approached by a number of key manufacturers who are willing to develop their product lines to include a specific Said Head Performance offering. Working with these companies that both Said and Jonsson have had experience with over the years utilizes their connections to identify the best products and make them available to both street tuner and race applications.

Initially, the Said Head Performance line will focus on developing products to satisfy the BMW market then expand to include Porsche, Audi and other marques. A product-range catalogue and website are being developed to make access to this exciting range of products widely available to potential clients.

Said commented that he was extremely excited to finally be able to offer street tuner and motorsports enthusiasts a range of products that both he and Jonsson feel are at the pinnacle of quality and performance by these great manufacturers. The acquisition of Sunbelt Engines by Kinetic -- the Championship winning engine builder of 2006 GS, ST Grand-American series, means that kinetic will be offering a wide range of engine and engine tuning kit options to satisfy all levels of the street and motorsports spectrum.

Initial companies that have agreed to develop products for the Said Head Performance line are: Kinetic Sunbelt Engines; BBS - world-wide suppliers of high quality wheels and rims; Eibach springs, shocks, sway bars, suspension components; Remus quality exhausts systems; GMG -- performance upgrade specialists; PFC Brake components and Joe Gibbs Racing Oil.

Bringing together products made by these manufacturers under the Said Head Performance banner will provide a one-stop-shop solution for enthusiasts who are serious about their performance needs.

The Said Head Performance range is set to launch their catalogue and specialist web site on March 1st 2007. Please check the website regularly for additional information and sign up to be kept informed of the new and exciting news emerging from Said Head Performance. www.saidheadperformance.com
