Fort McDowell Resort Destination to Sponsor Leffler in the Phoenix Cup Race

Mooresville, NC (May 15, 2006)- Jason Leffler and Braun Racing are going NEXTEL Cup racing later this year at Phoenix International Raceway. Fort McDowell Resort Destination will step-up their motorsport's program by becoming a primary sponsor in the NEXTEL Cup division for one race later this year.

"It's undisputed the coverage Fort McDowell will receive by stepping up to the next level at Phoenix later this year. Fort McDowell was very impressed by Jason's performance in the Busch series race last month (at Phoenix) and this is a perfect opportunity to test the waters at a higher level," explained Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation President Raphael Bear."The combination of a great team and a great driver creates an exciting potential for the race and exposure of the Fort McDowell Resort Destination. Fort McDowell is definitely looking forward to the added and growing relationship within the NASCAR arena," President Bear continued.

In addition to their new commitment to Braun Racing at the Cup level, the Fort McDowell Resort Destination logo will be displayed as a major associate sponsor on Leffler's No. 38 Great Clips Chevy at the California and Phoenix Busch races later this year.

About Fort McDowell: The Fort McDowell Yavapai, the "People of the Red Mountain" are one of three Yavapai tribes in Arizona. The nation, which has lived and prospered in Central Arizona for thousands of years, was granted a 24,000-acre reservation 35 miles northeast of Phoenix in 1903. Over the ensuing years, Fort McDowell has opened and/or expanded tribal enterprises such as Fort McDowell Yavapai Materials, a multi-million dollar supplier of the finest sand and gravel products to the Valley; Fort McDowell Adventures, the nation's outdoor Western entertainment venue in the area's most pristine location; Fort McDowell Farms, which produces alfalfa, citrus and pecans for sale; the Radisson Poco Diablo Resort in Sedona, Ariz.; Ba'ja Gas and Convenience Store; Eagle View (Aseh Gweh Oou-o) RV Resort; WeKoPa Golf Club, one of Arizona's finest public championship courses; and of course, Fort McDowell Casino, the state's first and best gaming facility. The nation's newest enterprise, the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort and Convention Center, opened in December 2005. For more information please visit www.ftmcdowell.org.
