KEVIN YORK JOINS COMPASS360 FOR 2008 KONI CHALLENGE SEASON

Charlotte, North Carolina -- Kevin York will rejoin the Grand American Road Racing's KONI Challenge Series full time in 2008.

In doing so, Kevin will again partner with 2007 championship-leading team, Compass360/Racing. The team ultimately finished second in the 2007 ST-class Drivers' Championship and, for the second year in a row, helped to bring Acura its second consecutive Manufacturer's Championship.

Joining Kevin in his association with Compass360/Racing will be a new and exciting marketing partner, unique to motorsport.

"I am extraordinarily pleased to be associated with Karl Thomson and his successful KONI Challenge team, Compass360/Racing, for the entire 2008 season," enthused Kevin. "Grand Am has grown and matured as a motorsport property, and so too has Karl's team. The momentum that the team has from its fantastic 2007 season will carry forward into the upcoming one without doubt!"

"Additionally, look for the details of my new marketing partner to be revealed in the Spring of the 2008 season as part of a structured roll-out. I expect everyone will be reading about it when they are formally announced in May." noted York. "We are very excited about it and the fans will be, too!"

The Compass360/Racing team will be ready for Grand Am's Daytona pre- season test in early January. The 2008 KONI Challenge Series' first race will then be held a few short weeks thereafter. The team will be displaying a bold new livery design that's completely in sync with the street tuner scene and the team's actively involved sponsors.
