Nettaxi to Sponsor 'Hurricane' Hannagan CAMPBELL, CA (July 15) - Nettaxi, Inc., a commerce-enabled community and portal web site with more than 100 million monthly page views, announced Thursday it will provide primary sponsorship for Randy Hannagan when he returns to the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. Hannagan, the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series Rookie of the Year in 1995, won the Northern Auto Racing Club's Golden State Challenge "King of California" championship last season. "The Hurricane" will debut TRH Motorsports' Nettaxi sprint car during the July 24th Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series event at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, MO. This primary sponsorship will include the Nettaxi logo on Hannagan's sprint car and 40-foot traveling trailer. TNN Motorsports provides live television coverage of select Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series races. Promotional items will be sold, while content specific to sprint car racing fans, including upcoming race schedules, news on the hottest racers and recent rankings for local and national races will be available at the Nettaxi community web site (http://www.nettaxi.com). The sponsorship includes co-marketing and distribution of Nettaxi's interactive CD-ROM at sprint car races and other promotional events. The CD includes a tutorial that serves as a simplified tool for the novice Internet user. It provides a step-by-step process that walks the user through the capabilities of the Internet and drives the user back to the Nettaxi Web site. "Sponsoring Randy Hannagan and TRH Motorsports gives Nettaxi the opportunity to expand our citizen base, enhance the online experience of citizens interested in the racing world and add specialized content to our Sports Arena Community," Robert Rositano, Jr., chief executive officer of Nettaxi, said. "Auto racing is the third most popular sport in the nation, and we are excited to be able to be a part of this popularity and provide this sponsorship for 'The Hurricane.'" Hannagan is excited that Nettaxi has allowed him to return to the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. "Having Nettaxi sponsor me and TRH Motorsports helps to bridge the gap between traditional sprint car racing and the virtual world," he said. "Nettaxi is a well-known online entity and will undoubtedly bring a new audience to this sport, as well as keep those avid fans filled with exciting content on their Web site." Nettaxi, Inc., based in Campbell, CA, is a provider of commerce- enabled communities. Through its web site and its interactive CD-ROM, Nettaxi provides access to content and services such as free e-mail and personal home pages.
