1. Racing Electronics and Race Safe Systems returns to the ASA Late Model Series for the Fifth Anniversary 2007 Season.

Lexington, Michigan (01/09/2006): The ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts is pleased to announce the return of two very prominent companies in the world of Auto Racing back to the ASALMS for the Fifth Anniversary 2007 season in the series "Where Champions Race"; Racing Electronics (R.E.) and Race Safe Systems (RSS).

Racing Electronics based in Concord, North Carolina returns to the ASALMS for the Fifth Anniversary 2007 once again as the "Official Radio Communications Provider" for all three divisions within the ASALMS, while Race Safe Systems has also returned for the upcoming campaign as all the cars and stars in all three divisions within the ASALMS will utilize the RSS System once again for the upcoming 2007 season!

The ASALMS and Racing Electronics will team up for the third year in a row. As part of the deal, ASALMS teams and fans will have the opportunity to visit the R.E. trailer at most of the ASALMS events during the upcoming season in all three divisions!

"We are very pleased to have Racing Electronics back with the ASALMS once again for the third year in a row and to help us celebrate out Fifth Anniversary Season!" Stated ASALMS Founder/President, Ron Varney. "R.E. is a recognized leader in the industry and they've been a fixture at ASALMS races and will be for many more years to come." Varney added.

The Race Safe System (RSS System) is a dash mounted light that will alert the driver instantaneously when the yellow flag is displayed. The signal is controlled by the ASALMS Race Director up in the scoring tower, so as soon as the decision to put out the yellow flag is given, each and every driver will immediately know and be able to slow down and avoid incidents on the race track.

"The ASALMS has always been and will always be at the forefront of safety and innovation." Continued Varney when talking about the RSS System. "Safety is extremely important to me, and as the ASALMS owner, it is my job to make sure the drivers are as safe as they can be at all times." He added.
