Avon, Ind. (June 20, 2001) - Single Buggy driver Molly Morter will be one of the guests on Music Television's (MTV) Mandy Show; a program hosted by singer Mandy Moore.

The show is part of MTV's Summer in the Keys (Key West, Florida).

Within the talk show, a segment features women in extreme sports. Gina Calanni, the producer of the Mandy Show, saw Morter's biography and feature story on Thunder Valley Racing (www.thunval.com), a website devoted to women drivers, said Morter.

"I was very excited to get the phone call," said Morter. "I knew it would be a great opportunity for me and my team, so I told her (Calanni) I would do it."

The show will air two times this Thursday, June 21 at 1:00 pm (EST) and 5:30 pm (EST) on the MTV network.

Morter is one of the many CORR EXXON Superflo Series drivers who understand the importance of promoting her team and off-road racing. Her opportunity to inform people of off-road racing and the CORR EXXON Superflo Series happened to be on MTV with millions of people watching.

"It was a great honor to be a part of the show. I know there are a lot of great women drivers out there, but not too many in off-road racing. I think this show will give the MTV viewers a taste of what extreme racing is," she said. "It's opportunities like this one that promote awareness of the sport and its drivers."

Molly Morter is a member of the Mortersports Racing Team, which includes her brother, Andy (Sportsman 2 driver). She is a public relations professional with Golin Harris in Chicago, Illinois. Morter's Extreme Safety Wear/Golin Harris Single Buggy will compete at this weekend's Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run (June 23-24) in Crandon, WI.
