SOUTH POINT RACING TO HOST OPEN HOUSE DURING LAS VEGAS TRUCK RACE WEEKEND

Las Vegas, NV (Sept. 6, 2007) -- South Point Racing will host its annual open house meet and greet on Friday, Sept. 21. The event will take place from 3 to 7:30 p.m. PT.

Fans are invited to come tour the South Point Racing shop and visit with driver Brendan Gaughan, who will be on hand to sign autographs. Visitors will also be treated to a barbecue during the open house.

"When it comes to the fans, we have a unique deal with our open house," said Gaughan, driver of the No. 77 South Point Hotel Chevrolet Silverado. "We open our shop up to the fans just like anybody else would, but we go a step further. We let everybody walk through the entire shop and see all the ins and outs of the race team.

"We're the only team in Las Vegas, so we make sure that we have free food for all the fans because we like to take care of people like nobody else does.

"We like to take care of our race fans, and they have a good time hanging out at the race shop and eating and talking with the guys on the team. We really look forward to seeing as many people as we can -- race fans, NASCAR officials and other teams -- that Friday at our shop."

South Point Racing is located at 6975 Speedway Blvd., Bldg. D-104, directly beside of Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
