PCR/Franklin and Arsenal join growing list of SCCA Pro Racing/WKA Constructors Championship Contingency Awards.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (July 18, 2002) - SCCA Pro Racing, Ltd. and the World Karting Association (WKA) announced today that PCR/Franklin Racing and Arsenal have joined the growing list of contingency sponsors in the Constructors Championship.

PCR will award $300 for first place, $200 for second and $100 for third to any driver using a PCR Chassis in any class, as well as the same dollar amounts for a driver finishing first through third using a PCR engine.

For winning the overall championship, in any class, with a PCR Chassis or engine, the winner will be given a New 2003 PCR Chassis to use, free of charge, for one entire year. They will also receive a PCR driving suit. To receive any of the above awards, drivers will be required to wear the official PCR driving suit while racing, and have the Kart in PCR colors with PCR graphics.

Arsenal's contingency programs are available to Constructor Championship drivers in ICA and ICC. The program includes $200 for pole position, $300 for first place, $150 for second and $75 for third for any driver displaying the necessary Arsenal logo on their visor, driving suit and kart. Arsenal will also pay the same amounts to drivers qualifying on pole and finishing first through third if they are driving a Hammer Werks Kart purchased from Arsenal or an authorized dealer. The final portion of the Arsenal contingency program involves $75 for pole, $100 for first place, $50 for second and $25 for third for any driver who uses Triton Design number panels and displays the appropriate logo. With each of these programs, a driver should consult with Arsenal in order to meet eligibility requirements.

"It is outstanding to see companies like PCR and Arsenal offering not only cash but, in the PCR case, the use of a new chassis for 2003," said Mitch Wright, SCCA Pro Racing Vice President and General Manager. "With the first race quickly approaching, the value of participating in the Constructors Championship is becoming apparent."

This latest program for the Constructors Championship joins the previously announced scholarship program from Jim Russell Racing School and Primus Racing, tire contingency awards from Bridgestone, Dunlop and MG, and the engine and chassis programs from Grand Products, Intense Karting, Tony Kart, and Margay Products, Inc.
