INDIANAPOLIS, April 14, 2000 - Walker Racing owner Derrick Walker announced today that the team has signed a three-year agreement with EWRX Internet Systems Inc. (OTC-BB: EWRX). This unique partnership will provide race fans everywhere with an insider view of open wheel racing highlighted by detailed behind-the-scenes perspectives which have never before been available to the public through its www.speedwrx.com website.

Walker Racing is the only open-wheel team competing during the 2000 season on a full-time basis in both the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) series with driver Shinji Nakano and the Indy Racing Northern Light (IRL) series with driver Sarah Fisher, and EWRX is the first company to be involved with both the Walker Racing IRL and CART crews.

"I am thrilled to have EWRX join our team," said Derrick Walker, President of Walker Racing. "Through our partnership with EWRX, we will be able to give race fans an insider's view of the team and our race cars -- to help them understand what goes on in racing from the inside. Partnering with EWRX and utilizing their Internet knowledge and experience gives us the opportunity to open the doors on aspects of racing in a way that has never been done before."

Walker Racing and EWRX will offer race fans unparalleled access to insider information from Walker Racing and its engineers, crews and drivers through its website. Technical Walker race team information that has been confidential in the past will be available only on the www.speedwrx.com website. This partnership will take race fans and enthusiasts inside key Walker Racing departments like the shock, engineering and gearbox departments, through the Internet.

"This association reflects EWRX commitment to make SpeedWRX.com the premier racing site on the Internet and to establish the EWRX group of automotive websites as the dominant brands in the specialty automotive aftermarket," said Ron Davis, President and CEO of EWRX. "The Internet has no boundaries and neither do we.
