"Stars of Karting and First Kart USA join forces to promote the sport"

Brownsburg, Indiana -- May 24, 2007 -- First Kart USA, the FirstKart.com race team and the Snap-on Stars of Karting presented by IndyCar Series will have a presence at this year's 91st running of the Indianapolis 500. With a booth display in the Indy Fan Zone, officials from First Kart USA and the Snap-on Stars of Karting series will be avidly promoting the sport of karting.

The Snap-on Stars of Karting Presented by IndyCar Series Assistant Marketing Director Mykala Terrel will be on site actively promoting the national championship while First Kart USA's Mike Maurini and First Kart North America's Tony Ventresca will be providing racing enthusiasts with an up close look at the First Kart / Parilla Leopard 125cc TaG package as well as information on how to get into the sport of karting.

Snap-on Stars of Karting presented by IndyCar Series graduate and Phil Giebler will make an appearance at the booth for an autograph session on Friday, May 25th from 2:00 -- 2:30pm. Giebler, who was the 2005 Stars of Karting Intercontinental A (ICA) National Champion and the 2006 Intercontinental C (ICC) East Champion and owner of the SodiKart G-Phactory Team, will be the 33rd place starter for the great American race and was honored earlier in the week as the fastest rookie at this year's event.

"This is a terrific opportunity for us to expose the motorsports community to the sport of karting," stated First Kart USA Director of Operations Mike Maurini. "The affiliation that Stars of Karting has with the IndyCar Series is amazing and all we are looking to do is help solidify that bond and promote the sport."

Paul Zalud, the President of the Snap-on Stars of Karting presented by IndyCar Series was equally as pleased, "The opportunity that the IndyCar Series has given us to expose our product at the world's largest spectator event is just amazing. Similarly, the team from First Kart USA have been great partners in helping us to make this presence that can really pay dividends for us. It's just a great program all around."
