Scott Riggs to Host "Riggs Report" on SIRIUS Satellite Radio

STATESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 12, 2007) -- Valvoline Evernham Racing and SIRIUS Satellite Radio have announced that Scott Riggs, driver of the No. 10 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge Charger in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series, will have a weekly spot on the SIRIUS NASCAR Radio program, The Driver's Seat.

The Driver's Seat, hosted by veteran broadcaster John Kernan, airs Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET exclusively on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio, channel 128. A stellar crew of past and present drivers including Buddy Baker, Johnny Benson, Randy LaJoie, Ron Hornaday, Ricky Craven, Phil Parsons and John Andretti co-host the show, taking calls from listeners, interviewing special guests and discussing the latest news from the high-speed world of NASCAR. Listeners can catch the Riggs Report with Scott Riggs and John Kernan every Tuesday from 1 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. beginning February 13th, where they will be discussing previous and upcoming races as well as current topics in the sport.

"I look forward to having my own outlet to connect with fans and having some fun talking about racing," said Riggs. "At the same time this will be a behind-the-scenes-account of the progress of the Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge in 2007. We've got a great season ahead of us and there is a lot to talk about."

Riggs, in his fourth year of NASCAR Nextel Cup competition, had a breakthrough season on 2006 and has proven popular with fans off the track for his down-to-earth personality, sense of humor, and commitment to hard work. In his first season driving for Valvoline Evernham Racing, he earned two poles, one top five and eight top-10 finishes, including a win in the Nextel Open.

"We're delighted to welcome Scott Riggs to The Driver's Seat on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio," said Doug Rice, president of PRN and executive producer of the show. "Scott will add a lot of color and entertainment to the program, along with great front-row perspective on all the action on the track and in the garage."
