GOODY'S® HEADACHE POWDER RETURNS TO MARTINSVILLE AS RACE TITLE SPONSOR

NASCAR Busch Series Goody's 250 To Run on July 22

Martinsville, VA; May 13, 2006 -- With a 16-year legacy as a race title sponsor, Goody's Headache Powder will return to historic Martinsville Speedway as title sponsor of the NASCAR Busch Series race, announced Darren Singer, Vice President of Goody's Marketing for GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare and Clay Campbell, President Martinsville Speedway. Goody's Headache Powder and Martinsville Speedway have agreed on terms for the sponsorship of the Goody's 250, to be held on Saturday, July 22, reuniting one of NASCAR's longest standing sponsors with one of NASCAR's most historic racetracks.

"As the Official Pain Reliever of NASCAR for the past thirty years, we are thrilled to be the title sponsor of the Goody's 250 at Martinsville Speedway located in the heart of Goody's Country," said Singer. "With all the tradition of Martinsville Speedway, it makes for the perfect setting for NASCAR's longest running non-automotive sponsor to celebrate its heritage in the sport. Goody's is a brand that is all about speed and we are proud to have so many dedicated users who love their brand. Martinsville Speedway is also all about speed and has a proud history of dedicated fans that flock to the speedway for a NASCAR experience that can't be beat!"

Goody's has a long, colorful history with NASCAR and Martinsville Speedway. Goody's entered the sport in 1977 as the "Official Pain Reliever of NASCAR".

In its nearly 30 years as a NASCAR sponsor, Goody's has sponsored races at Daytona International Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway. From 1983 -- 1999, Goody's sponsored the Goody's 500, the NASCAR Cup race at Martinsville.

The Goody's 250 will mark the first time that the NASCAR Busch Series has raced at Martinsville Speedway in over a decade. A total of 33 NASCAR Busch Series races were run at Martinsville from 1982 -- 1994.

"I couldn't think of a better way to bring the Busch Series back to Martinsville Speedway than with Goody's as the sponsor," said Campbell. "The Goody's 250 is a new event, but it's almost like a family reunion for us. Goody's has been such a big part of the history of Martinsville Speedway over the years and we're really excited to have them back as the sponsor of this historic event."
