FORT WORTH-DALLAS (Feb. 29, 2000) - A new racing event, featuring the defending national champion motorcycle rider, is scheduled for the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track on Saturday night, May 6.

Chris Carr of Fleetwood, Penn., is expected to lead the star-studded field racing for $55,000 in prize money and awards at "Motorcycle Mania at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track." Preliminary races will be topped by a 25-lap main event around the four-tenths mile clay oval.

Carr's motorcycles are maintained for the national racing circuit in nearby Rhome, Texas.

The event is part of the Wrenchead.com National Dirt Track Series. Included in the day's activities will be a motorcycle exposition area with a wide assortment of motorcycle accessories.

"We have promised our fans that top-quality racing will be presented at Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track," said speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "Our first three programs on the dirt track will allow fans to see the best sprint car drivers with the Pennzoil World of Outlaws, the top late model racers with the Hav-A-Tampa Dirt Racing Series and the cream of the crop in motorcycle racing with the Wrenchead.com National Dirt Track Series.

"Seeing 750cc Harley-Davidsons and other makes of motorcycles running wide open around a high-banked dirt track is breathtaking racing," said Gossage. "When it comes to racing, these riders are considered to be the most macho competitors in motorsports."

"We are extremely excited to be opening our new series at the newest and grandest dirt facility in the United States," said Gary D. Becker, Chief Executive Officer of Pace Motor Sports, Inc., originators of the series.

"We are sure the riders are going to really enjoy competing at this state-of-the-art facility."
