PENDLETON, Ind. (December 22, 2003) -- Continuing its successful affiliation with the rapidly expanding American Speed Association Member Track program, Fergus Falls Raceway and I-94 Raceway, owned by TNT Properties, have formed an agreement for the 2004 racing season. This marks the third season that weekly racing at I-94 Raceway has been under the ASA Racing banner and the second year for Fergus Falls Raceway.

"We are excited with the opportunity for both Fergus Falls and I-94 to be under the ASA Racing umbrella," said Tim Olson, co-owner of Fergus Falls Raceway and I-94 Raceway. "It will be beneficial for both tracks to utilize the knowledge of ASA Racing and Dennis Huth, ASA Member Track program director. Anytime we can be affiliated with ASA's nationally touring series allows for both of our tracks to grow into stronger weekly racetracks."

Both Fergus Falls Raceway and I-94 Raceway are .375-mile, high-banked asphalt ovals. Fergus Falls hosts racing on Friday nights while I-94 Raceway competes on Saturday evenings. Both ASA Member Tracks showcase six exciting divisions competing on a weekly basis: Late Models, Modifieds, Legends, Super Stocks, Thunder Cars and UCARs.

TNT Properties, owned by Tim and Ted Olson, manage and operation both I-94 Raceway in Sauk Centre, Minn., and Fergus Falls Raceway in Fergus Falls, Minn. The Olsons have a long history in motorsports dating back to the 1950s when Floyd, the family patriarch, started his racing career. Sons Tim and Ted followed in his racing footsteps. Tim has an extensive racing background, racing Late Models professionally throughout the country.

The ASA Member Track program is designed for weekly short track venues to make available many of the policies, principles, procedures and components that have made the American Speed Association a premier short track sanctioning body for 36 years.

Participating tracks receive contributions to their year-end points fund, marketing opportunities, and join a small, select group of elite tracks displaying the ASA Member Track logo.

ASA Member Tracks showcase exciting competition with their local racing programs, providing training grounds for the ASA Racing stars of tomorrow. Through the ASA Member Track program, "We Build Champions. "

The American Speed Association offers racing on three levels: ASA National Tour, ASA Late Model Series and through the rapidly expanding ASA Member Track program. For additional information, visit www.asaracing.com.
