Anderson , Indiana -- Following a highly successful first season of operation, the Premier Racing Association has announced a 9-race schedule for 2007. The Big Car Series will make return visits to South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, Georgia, O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis and USA International Speedway in Lakeland, Florida . New venues for 2007 include Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan and Oswego Speedway in New York. Two other dates are nearly finalized and will be announced soon.

"We're thrilled to be able to add two legendary tracks like Berlin Raceway and Oswego Speedway to our schedule for this year", stated PRA co-founder Jason McCord. "Both have great histories of racing, but Big Cars have never competed at either venue. Our level of competition will bring a new dimension of racing to these facilities."

The PRA's first visit to South Georgia Motorsports Park in 2006 saw Ryan Newman in victory lane before a near capacity weeknight crowd. The 2007 visits to SGMP will both be on Saturday nights, as will a return visit to USA International's three-quarter mile oval in Lakeland, Florida . One of the two visits to O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis will be contested on Friday night, the other ORP date and the event at Berlin Raceway will be on Wednesday nights.

Veteran driver Chet Fillip won the inaugural PRA Big Car Championship, despite not winning a race. Race winners were Bobby Santos III (twice), Ryan Newman, Carl Edwards, and Eric Gordon. In all 43 drivers competed in the series in its inaugural year.
