Michigan's newest luxury hotel, the Mountain Grand Lodge and Spa&, and Avalanche Bay &, Michigan's largest indoor waterpark at Boyne Mountain team up with Forsythe Championship Racing and Paul Tracy in the Champ Car World Series.

Opened in May 2005, Mountain Grand Lodge and Avalanche Bay are joint venture projects between Boyne USA Resorts (www.boyne.com) and New Frontiers Capital, LLC (a Forsythe group company).

"I am very proud of what my partners and I have achieved in developing the Mountain Grand Lodge and Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark at Boyne Mountain in northern Michigan" said Jerry Forsythe. "The Midwest's major cities of Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Toronto are key markets for the resort. Working together at the Cleveland and Toronto Champ Car races on promotional and marketing activities is a natural fit, and the timing is especially relevant - we opened Mountain Grand Lodge and Avalanche Bay just last month. After the grand opening ceremony recently, even having followed the development closely, I can tell you that the facilities are really outstanding, with luxurious accommodations and wonderful resort amenities and activities for the whole family. I'll be back soon with my grand children to fully 'test drive' Avalanche Bay!"

Stephen Kircher, President of Boyne USA Resorts' eastern operations stated "We are delighted to extend our partnership with the Forsythe group and to join Forsythe Championship Racing, Paul Tracy and the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series powered by Ford for the hugely popular and successful Grand Prix of Cleveland and the Toronto Molson Indy. Champ Car's reputation is delivering exciting great value entertainment to its fans, and at Mountain Grand Lodge and Avalanche Bay we have just opened what we believe is Michigan's finest hotel and spa and Michigan's largest and most dynamic indoor waterpark. We look forward to sharing our passion for quality, fun and the highest levels of customer satisfaction with Champ Car's fans from the Midwest, Canada and around the world."

Paul Tracy is looking forward to visiting Mountain Grand Lodge and Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark, "I'm hoping that having Mountain Grand Lodge and Avalanche Bay on my car will get me a discount! The resort looks fantastic and I look forward to visiting Boyne Mountain later this summer ... in the meantime I'll be trying hard to put them in the winners circle in Cleveland and Toronto!"
