SCHRADER'S ANNUAL 'NIGHT OF STARS' SCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 2, TICKETS ON SALE NOW

CONCORD, N.C. (June 30, 2006) -- Ken Schrader is calling on his friends again to participate in his annual All-Star charity event at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo.

Drivers from NASCAR's big three Series are answering his call and jumping on board for the charity event. NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Matt Kenseth along with former driver Rusty Wallace, NASCAR Busch Series drivers Kenny Wallace and Stephen Wallace and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series drivers Rick Crawford, Brendan Gaughan and David Reutimann have already confirmed that they will join Schrader at his 3/8-mile Missouri dirt track for the annual 'M&M's Night of Stars' charity event.

This year's autograph session and celebrity Dirt Modified race is scheduled for Wednesday, August 2 at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo. The All-Star event will benefit a variety of racing charities selected by the drivers, including the Victory Junction Gang Camp.

"The 'M&M's Night of Stars' has really become an event that the fans and the drivers both really enjoy and look forward to every year," Schrader said. "I always promise the drivers who come to Pevely that we will have a great time -- and this year won't be any different.

"We have some great drivers already lined up to be part of this year's race. Some of the guys have been to the track before like Dale Jr. and Herman, but this will be the first trip to Pevely for a lot of them which makes the night even more fun. Most importantly, these are guys who have a great time with the fans, too. So it's going to be a big night for everyone."

Drivers are scheduled to participate in an autograph session at the track from 5-7 p.m. CT. The green flag falls on racing at I-55 Raceway at 7:30 p.m. The celebrity Dirt Modified Shootout will precede the night's feature event -- winged Sprint cars and UMP Late Models.

Reserved tickets for the 'Night of Stars' event are on sale now. Reserved tickets are $30. Fans can purchase tickets by calling the track at 636-479-3219. General admission tickets, which will be available the day of the event, are $25.
