SPEED TECHNOLOGIES READIES TO COMPETE IN THE TERRIBLE'S "250" AT PRIMM

RENO, NV (April 14th, 2008)--Speed Technologies, one of the largest and foremost off-road race teams in the United States, plans to race two Class 1 cars and one Class 10 car in the upcoming Terrible's "250" at Primm, NV on April 17-19. Dubbed the "Richest Off-Road Race in Nevada" for its $10,000 prize purse, the Terrible's "250" at Primm will consist of three treacherous 84 mile loops that begin and end in the town of Primm.

"We love racing in Nevada -- it's our home base," said team owner and driver John Harrah. "We've been working on getting our program in top condition for this race and our drivers, co-drivers and team support have all put extra time and energy into making sure we are 100% ready to go."

The HMS Avenger driving duties will be split by Mark Levrett and Chuck Dempsey -- the team who took home 4th place in the Laughlin Desert Challenge earlier this year, they currently rank third overall in points in the world famous SCORE Desert Series. Levrett's co-driver will be JJ Johnson of Reno and Dempsey's co-driver will be Raymond Berre.

"We've have really progressed over last year and we hope to continue to be one of the top teams throughout the season," said driver Levrett.

The HMS Class 1 will be driven by John Harrah and John Herder. Speed Technologies is excited to have John Herder, last years Terrible's 250 overall winner, sharing driving duties with John Harrah behind the wheel of this race car.

"Having someone with the experience and record of John Herder behind the wheel of the Dominator is paramount to the success of Speed Technologies," said team owner and Dominator driver John Harrah.
