Stewart confirms commitment to Berlin for June 10; tickets on sale Saturday.

MARNE, MI (January 31, 2003) - NASCAR Winston Cup Champion Tony Stewart has confirmed that he will race at Berlin Raceway on Tuesday, June 10, along with Johnny Benson in the Spring Memorial Race, presented by Meijer and Tony's Pizza. Stewart has now signed a contract to race at Berlin after tentatively agreeing to do so before the end of the 2002 Winston Cup season, pending his schedule if he won the championship. Stewart was able to fit Berlin into his tight schedule and signed an agreement today.

Tickets for the Spring Memorial race, as well as all other 2003 Berlin Raceway races, will go on sale Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Grand Center in conjunction with the Michigan International Auto Show. Fans who are unable to make it to the DeVos Hall Lobby can purchase tickets through TicketMaster by phone (616-456-3333), on the Internet (www.berlinraceway.com) or in person at TicketMaster outlets. Ticket prices for weekly races are $11 in advance and $12 on the day of the race, while special event prices range from $15 to $25 in advance. Spring Memorial Race tickets are $25 in advance. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Marne Lions Club.

Stewart won the UPS Grand Haven Race Car Festival at Berlin Raceway last June in his second-ever appearance here (his first appearance was a fourth place finish in the USAC Sprint Car feature on July 4, 1992),

The Berlin Raceway Ticket Office will open for individual ticket sales later in the spring; however, fans who want to purchase tickets early can do so through TicketMaster, online at www.berlinraceway.com, or at the administrative offices (2060 Berlin Fair Drive) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
