EDMONTON, Alberta (May 18, 2010) -- IHRA and Castrol Raceway is pleased to announce that the River Cree Resort and Casino will return as title sponsor of the Rocky Mountain Nitro Jam Nationals June 25-27 at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Host to one of the biggest drag races in North America, the River Cree Resort and Casino will continue to add to the already sterling tradition that is the Rocky Mountain Nitro Jam Nationals.

"We are very excited to be partnering again this year with the IHRA and the Rocky Mountain Nationals," said Kevin Schell, Vice-President and General Manager of River Cree Resort and Casino. "It is one of the most exciting events of the summer in the Edmonton area and attracts such a loyal and party-loving fan base.

"I'd like to invite all the great fans to visit the River Cree booth at Castrol Raceway and enjoy our Resort for a great stay and a lot of fun during the event."

Still over a month away advance ticket sales for the three-day event have already surpassed last year as race fans gear up for one of the largest Nitro Jams in history.

"We are truly thrilled to have the River Cree Resort and Casino back on board for another fantastic season. Over the past few years the River Cree have established themselves as Edmonton's premium place for entertainment," said Castrol Raceway owner Kimberly Reeves. "We couldn't be more honored with the fact they have chosen to align themselves with our facility and our Nitro Jam event once again.

"It shows their belief in the fact Castrol Raceway provides first-rate entertainment for our customers and guests. The 2010 River Cree Nitro Jam Nationals I anticipate will be our biggest event yet."

The River Cree Resort and Casino Rocky Mountain Nitro Jam Nationals presented by MOPAR and E3 Spark Plugs is the fifth of 10 races on the 2010 Nitro Jam tour. It will feature multiple nitro classes including Top Fuel, Pro Fuel and Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car along with dozens of additional classes including Alcohol Funny Cars, Nitro Harleys, Pro Modifieds, the Canadian debut of side-by-side jet trucks, many of Canada's best sportsman competitors and more.

"Our current ticket sales and professional competitor lineup are outstanding," Reeves said. "With the River Cree Resort and Casino's support, we plan to not only make Edmonton, but all of Canada say wow."
