Pro Stock Motorcycle Racer Steve Johnson Teams With WyoTech To Rev Up Student Career Opportunities

Leading National Technical Training School Aligned With NHRA Drag Racing Standout

SANTA ANA, CA 5/15/06 Timothy Schutz, president/COO of Titan Schools, Inc. (TSi), today announced the signing of National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Pro Stock Motorcycle racer Steve Johnson t a five-race major sponsorship agreement. WyoTech, Inc. is a national leader in technical training for automotive and other technologies. TSi operates WyoTech campuses as a division of parent company, Cornithian Colleges, Inc.

"We are thrilled to have a man of Steve's character on our team," Shutz said from his offices in Santa Ana, California. "Steve brings a lot more to the table than just his ability to win races on the very competitive NHRA POWERade Series circuit. His dynamic personality and vast experience in making personal appearances at schools and other venues on behalf of his sponsors makes him an ideal spokesperson for WyoTech."

Johnson, who recently signed a major sponsorship agreement with Snap-on Tools, feels the fit with WyoTech is ideal for both companies. "This is one of those marketing 'marriages' that you dream about," he said. "I learned a long time ago that being associated with the top brands in their respective fields was the key to becoming successful. This is definitely one of those situations.

"Being aligned with a company that has the coolest and most technologically advanced schools I've ever seen while also being affiliated with the manufacturer of the best tools you can buy is something very special. I also think it's relevant to point out that Snap-on Tools are used extensively throughout the WyoTech campuses, which is one more reason that our getting together like this is a natural.

"My association with WyoTech is going to encompass more than just carrying another sponsor's name and logo on our Suzuki Pro Stock Motorcycle," he continued. "We've already set up an extensive schedule of personal appearances for the balance of the year during which I'll continue to impress on school-age youngsters the importance of staying in school. At the same time I'll now be in the position of being able to give them solid advice on pursuing an automotive-related career," said Johnson.

"With gas prices being as high as they are it's my gut feeling that people are going to be continually searching for ways of saving money, and one way of doing that is by making sure your car, truck or motorcycle is in absolutely first class condition. That translates to an ever increasing demand for professionally trained technicians, in all fields, and that's where a WyoTech education can come into the picture."

Johnson will make five appearances in national event competition with WyoTech, including the Pontiac Performance Nationals in Columbus, OH May 19-21, the Mile-High Nationals in Denver July 14-16, the Fram Nationals in Sonoma, CA July 28-30, the Toyo Tires Nationals in Reading, PA September 14-17 and the AC Delco Nationals in Las Vegas October 26-29. In all other outings, Snap-onTools wil continue to be Johnson's major sponsor, with WyoTech occupying an associate sponsorship position on his Suzuki.

"We're looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Steve and NHRA drag racing," Schutz added. "Drag racing is an extremely dynamic, exciting activity that includes participants and fans from across the age and demographic spectrums. We've seen Steve Johnson 'in action' in a variety of situations, from racing to personal appearances, and he epitomizes the kind of thorough professionalism that's the hallmark of the WyoTech experience.

"Take my word for it," Shutz concluded, "this is going to be an exciting season for both Steve Johnson and WyoTech, and we can't wait to get started!"

WyoTech offers technical training for men and women eager to cash in on lucrative careers in automotive technology (including BMW Step), auto body, diesel, aviation, HVAC, chassis fabrication, high performance engines and motorcycles. WyoTech operats seven campuses nationwide, from Daytona,FL to Sacramento, Oakland and Fremont, CA to Laramie, WY, Blairsville, PA and Boston, MA. Among its recent graduates is Ms. Jessi Combs of Spike TV's "Xtreme 4X4" show.
