LAS VEGAS, NV (July 27, 1998) The Derek Daly Performance Driving Academy announced today that the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has contracted to become the exclusive tire supplier through the year 2001. The famous Goodyear name and logo will appear on all vehicles, marketing materials, advertising, staff clothing and all other Derek Daly Academy promotional items.

"I spent most of my racing career on Goodyear tires, so I am absolutely delighted with their addition to our growing company," commented Academy owner Derek Daly, who drove competitively in Formula One, Indy car, and IMSA during the 70's, 80's, and 90's. "This is another great step forward for us. Goodyear is a world leader in the automotive and racing industry, so you can not ask for any better partner."

The Derek Daly Academy opened in November 1996 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and features driving programs designed for both aspiring race drivers and those wanting to "Live the Dream." In addition, the Academy specializes in providing custom tailored corporate entertainment programs. The Derek Daly Academy is considered an industry leader for their use of state-of-the-art Nemesis Formula race cars, one on one instruction and data acquisition systems. The Academy recently added a fleet of BMW Z3 Roadsters for their 2 Day GT Performance Program.
