*O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions Release 2007 Schedule*

(CAMARGO, IL) 2-25-07 With the first three events of the 2007 racing season already in the record books, the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions is looking ahead to the rest of the season when the series returns to Attica Raceway Park on April 6th and 7th for the Coors Light Attica Spring Nationals. This event has traditionally been one of the more heavily anticipated events in early season sprint car racing with high car counts and even higher competition levels as the All Stars enter hostile territory to compete against the tough Ohio locals. This will set the tone for the All Star's 2007 campaign around the Ohio region and across the Midwest.

The 2007 list of events includes many of the venues that the series has visited in the past and a few that the All Stars have not competed on in quite some time. In addition, the series will visit Southern Raceway in Pensacola, FL and Morgan County Speedway in Jacksonville, IL for the very first time in 2007.

Though the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions maintains a healthy relationship with the World of Outlaws organization, there will be a limited number of co-sanctioned events in 2007. The "Brad Doty Classic" at Limaland Motorsports Park, the "Knight Before The Kings Royal", and the "Kings Royal" events at Eldora Speedway will all be run in conjunction with the World of Outlaws, once again bringing the nation's two longest running 410 winged sprint car organizations back together again on one track.

As always, the premier event on the All Star schedule is "Ohio Sprint Speedweek" -- the original sprint speedweek dating back 25 years. This season there will be added incentive for the Silver Anniversary event. A $15,000 point fund will be distributed at the end of the week and a $50,000 bonus is up for grabs to the driver who can win 4 of the 7 events. More details will be released in the near future. "Thunder Through the Plains" returns once again in August following the Knoxville Nationals. This is a week of events that series president Guy Webb has been working to revive in order to bring the All Star brand to fans further west. The series will thunder through Mayetta and Hays, KS and end up in West Memphis, AR at the newly renovated Riverside Speedway on "Elvis Days" weekend.

"The "Hoosier Fall Classic" returns to Lawrenceburg Speedway in September as the season winds down once again. New promoter Dave Rudisell has been working hard to re-surface the 1/4 mile bullring in time for the start of the 2007 season. RPM Productions recognized the importance of the "Hoosier Fall Classic" event to the fans and welcomes the All Stars back in 2007."
