Ft. Worth, Texas - October 14,1999 TKO Motorsports announces today, at Texas Motor Speedway, that half of all the teams winning's from tomorrow's O'Reilly's 300 will be donated to the Wedgewood Victims Fund and to the North Carolina Flood Relief Fund.

The Wedgewood Victims Fund helps those affected by the shooting at the Wedgewood Baptist Church on September 15 in Ft. Worth. TKO Motorsports is based in the Ft. Worth area and owner Mike Farris feels a responsibility to help, "I think it is important to give back to a community that has blessed us so much over the years."

The area where TKO driver Randy Renfrow's friends and family call home was hit hard by Hurricane Floyd last month and the North Carolina Flood Relief Fund is a way to reach those victims. This fund is set up by the governor, Jim Hunt, to put cash in the hands of the people before FEMA and personal insurance checks are available. Norris Tolson, director of the fund commented, "The outpouring of compassion from others has been amazing, an example of that is Randy Renfrow and TKO, they will never know the people whose dignity is restored by their gift." The first of the money will be distributed tomorrow.

"A lot of good people are suffering back home and will be for a long time," said Randy. "We can't forget about them and now is when they need us most."

TKO Motorsports fields the No. 41 Dodge Ram NASCAR Truck. Join them as they run the O'Reilly's 300 on Friday night at 8:30EST.
