NHRA STATEMENT REGARDING THE CLOSURE OF MEMPHIS MOTORSPORTS PARK

On behalf of all NHRA racers, fans and sponsors, we are very disappointed to learn about Dover Motorsports Inc.'s decision to close Memphis Motorsports Park. We had been in discussions with the management team at Dover Motorsports regarding the track's future in recent weeks and were aware that this action was a possibility. We appreciate the great support we received from the fans throughout the western Tennessee region as well as the cooperation from all those who worked at the facility.

We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Dover Motorsports group and conducting the national event at Gateway International Raceway at St. Louis. At this time, the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series schedule for 2010 will be reduced to 23 events.
