FORT WORTH-DALLAS (April 12, 2001) - Texas Motor Speedway is looking for a few good race fans who are real CART fanatics.

The CART FANatics contest will give 28 lucky winners, who will each be paired with one of the drivers, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the CART FedEx Championship Series Firestone Firehawk 600, presented by Pioneer, as well as participate in the pre-race activities with their selected driver.

"We think this will be a really unique way to involve our fans," said speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "We're very excited to have this great international series and we know that these twenty-eight lucky fans will be even more enthused than we are."

Each winner will receive two seats in the new Victory Lane Club for the race, as well as two Motorola Radio Shack Qualifying Day tickets, a pre-race garage tour, a FedEx goody bag and a ride in the Transporter Parade on April 25 from Cowboys Arlington to the speedway. Winners will each be paired with a driver by randomly selecting one of 28 sealed FedEx boxes prior to the Transporter Parade. The fan who is paired with the winning driver will also attend the post-race Champagne Toast in The Speedway Club and receive a one-year Speedway Club membership.

Entry forms for the CART FANatics contest are available at the speedway ticket office through April 23 during regular ticket office hours. The winners will be selected by random drawing and notified by April 25. Winner's names will also be posted on the speedway website at www.texasmotorspeedway.com.

Race tickets and information about the Firestone Firehawk 600, presented by Pioneer, are available by calling (817) 215-8500, online at www.texasmotorspeedway.com and at Ticketmaster outlets.
