WATCH OR LISTEN TO THE ASCS PATRIOTS LIVE TUESDAY FROM ROLLING WHEELS

TULSA, Okla. (May 30, 2006) - One year after being an impressive companion to the World of Outlaws Sprint Car event at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park, the Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriot Sprint Group will be back to once again help make up the "Sprint Car Spectacular" on Tuesday night in Elbridge, NY.

On June 1, 2005, Bryan Howland won the 20-lap "A" Feature by more than eight seconds at the track less than ten miles up the road from his home in Auburn, NY. The win was Howland's second of four on the season and put him back atop the point standings, where he remained for the rest of season.

This event was also a coming out party for Jessica Zemken, who finished fourth in only her second Sprint Car start and her first with the Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriots. Zemken has already won two events this year at large flat tracks and should be considered among the list of countless drivers that will challenge for the win.

Rich Swarthout won this past Saturday night at Stateline Speedway, but last year the "Phatman" failed to qualify for the "A" Main at Rolling Wheels; it was the only race the Geneva, NY, driver finished outside of the top ten all year.

Chuck Hebing, winner of the first two ASCS Patriot "A" Mains this season, won the "C" Main last year and finished second in a caution-free "B" Main to put him into the big show. In the "A" Main, "Cobra" moved up from 22nd to finish sixth.

Other drivers expected to compete at the ultra-fast 5/8th mile will be Rick Wilson and Kyle Drum, who have both won the annual sprint car challenge as part of Super DIRT Week.

Racing will get underway at 7:00 p.m., and will involve nothing but sprint cars touching the racetrack all night long.

Rolling Wheels Raceway Park is located two miles west of Elbridge, NY, on State Road 5, then south. For more information, contact the track at 315-689-7809.

For those unable to catch the action in person, www.DIRTvision.com will have their Cybercast available with a Cyberpass membership to watch both the World of Outlaw and ASCS Patriot events. If you do not obtain a membership, you can still get your blood rushing while sitting in front of your computer by listening to the DIRT Radio Network, available for free on www.DIRTvision.com
