SPEED TECHNOLOGIES READIES TO COMPETE IN THE TECATE SCORE BAJA 250 FOR THE FIRST TIME

RENO, NV (March 7th, 2008)--Speed Technologies, one of the nation's largest and foremost off-road race teams, will be competing March 14th & 15th in the Tecate SCORE Baja 250 for the first time since the team's inception in 2006. The race, taking place in small village of San Felipe, Mexico, tackles a mixture of moguls, sand, silt, canyons, washes and rocks over the entire 232 mile course.

"Mexico takes some extra preparation," said team crew chief Phil Johnson. "We're taking over 40 people, two race cars, two race bikes and plenty of extra parts to make sure that we're ready to tackle all that the Tecate SCORE Baja 250 has to offer."

Speed Technologies will be racing the Dominator and the HMS Avenger in the Class 1 section as well as a 250 and 500 CC bike in the motorcycle section of the race. Team owner, John Harrah, along with John Hearder will be racing the Dominator and drivers Chuck Dempsey and Mark Levrett will be racing the HMS Avenger. The 500 will be driven by Cody Wallace, Adam Thissen and Robert Underwood and the 250 will be driven by Cody Knight, Martin Kite and Ryan Toomey. The team will have nine chase trucks at the race--as safety is always a first priority for Speed Technologies.

"We feel very confident about the Tecate SCORE Baja 250, "said team owner and driver John Harrah. "We've been preparing for this race and feel confident that we'll start out strong and finish this challenging race."
