Indianapolis, IN 4-7-00-Jonathan Byrd / McCormack Motorsports and WorldBestBuy.com are thrilled to announce a new promotional partnership to introduce the speed and convenience of the online marketplace at www.worldbestbuy.com to Indy Racing fans worldwide. Under the terms of the sponsorship agreement, www.worldbestbuy.com will become a primary sponsor of the Jonathan Byrd / McCormack Motorsports Riley & Scott / Firestone Firehawk / Oldsmobile #30, driven by Ronnie Johncox.

www.worldbestbuy.com was launched on November 15, 1999, and is one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies in cyberspace. The site offers traditional shopping at value prices plus some of the hottest auction action online. In addition, the site features unmatched business to business deals for volume buyers. Web surfers can even use the site to sell their own household items and collectibles at no charge.

In forming this relationship with Jonathan Byrd / McCormack Motorsports, WorldBestBuy.com expands its presence in the motorsports arena. "Among all dot com companies we are probably the most active sponsor of motor racing." says Elliot Borin, WorldBestBuy.com's executive vice-president of marketing. "While other companies concentrate on one series or type of racing, we're committed to taking our message to every speed palace we possibly can. All the company principals have a long-time interest in racing and we know that our fellow race fans are great potential customers. Indy Racing fans are people with money to spend who are interested in high technology. Let's face it, shopping online is a no brainer for someone who knows the pros and cons of normally aspirated versus turbo-charged engines and has managed to get even a little understanding of downforce."

"We are particularly pleased to add the Jonathan Byrd / McCormack team as one of our racing partners. Indy car racing stands-and has stood since 1911-as a uniquely American gift to the world. Come June, all over the globe, even in third-world countries, communist states, and mid-Eastern dictatorships, more people will know the name of the Indianapolis 500 winner than will know the name of any world or business leader. It's an awesome thing to consider."

"We're thrilled to bring the energy and enthusiasm of WorldBestBuy.com to our organization." said Dennis McCormack. "It's a tremendous boost to our team to be involved with a company that understands the marketing value of motorsports and appreciates the unique nature and history of Indy Racing. WorldBestBuy.com is a wonderful addition to our team and should be a valuable member of the Northern Light series. Co-owner Jonathan Byrd added, "Dennis (McCormack) and I are looking forward to building a positive and mutually beneficial relationship with WorldBestBuy.com, and we hope to reward their faith in us by providing them a trip to Victory Lane next month in Indianapolis, and many more times to come."
