IROC SERIES DELAYS START OF 2007 SEASON Series Seeking Title Sponsorship

Tinton Falls, N.J., January 9, 2007 - The International Race of Champions (IROC) officials announced today a delay in the start of the 2007 season due to not having a title sponsor in place. The traditional IROC season opener at Daytona International Speedway in February will not take place while the Series continues to pursue a new title sponsor.

IROC President Jay Signore said, "We're very disappointed about not making it to Daytona this year and we're working very hard to find a title sponsor. Our hopes are to find a new title sponsor in enough time to be able to have a full four-race season within 2007. I want to thank Robin Braig and his entire staff at Daytona International Speedway for all of their patience and support during this difficult period. All of IROC's partners and associates have been, and continue to be, very loyal and supportive of our efforts to continue the IROC Series."

The  elite  All-Star
invitational  competition,  which  matches  12  drivers  from  different
disciplines  of  auto  racing  in  equally  prepared  cars,  celebrated
its  30th  anniversary season  in  2006  with  NASCAR  NEXTEL  Cup
champion  Tony  Stewart  winning  the prestigious $1-million IROC
championship. All  plans  regarding  the  remainder  of  2007  are
pending  the  procurement  of  a  title sponsor.
