World of Outlaws Racing Exclusively On SPEED in 2008
Broadcast partnership includes three LIVE broadcasts

CONCORD, N.C. -- March 23, 2008 -- World Racing Group announced today that SPEED will be the exclusive television partner for World of Outlaws racing in 2008. The partnership will be anchored by five super-sized multi-hour events, three of which will be broadcast live, including the highly successful World of Outlaws World Finals season finale.

There will be 25 hours of Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and World of Outlaws Late Model Series action, featuring a combination of live and tape-delayed broadcasts beginning on May 23 with the super-sized three-hour Rite Aid Outlaw Showdown broadcast LIVE from The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway.

"The World of Outlaws broadcasts in 2007 showed us how exciting dirt track racing can be on television," said Rick Miner, SPEED Senior VP of Production and Network Operations. "The success of the World Finals show from The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway gave us a gameplan for '08, as part of that plan we will be treating the five new super-sized events just as we do any other major motorsports event on SPEED, which should significantly raise the profile of World of Outlaws racing."

A return to SPEED in 2008 as the exclusive television outlet for World of Outlaws racing will bring consistency and awareness to the viewers.

"The broadcast agreement with SPEED continues the solid growth we realized in 2007," said World Racing Group CEO Brian Carter. "The more than 75 million viewers on SPEED give our corporate partners, like Advance Auto Parts, as well as our teams and our promoters, the greatest opportunity to reach our fans on a consistent basis. SPEED is the home for racing on television and we're excited to again have the World of Outlaws on SPEED this season."

Among the 25 hours of coverage will be a three-hour LIVE event with the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series to kick off the 2008 TV schedule on May 23 from The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway; a two-hour Firecracker 100 special from Lernerville Speedway featuring the World of Outlaws Late Model Series; a two-hour Kings Royal special from Tony Stewart's Eldora Speedway; a three-hour LIVE broadcast from the National Open at Williams Grove Speedway; and, the three-hour LIVE season-finale from The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway.
