*O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions Headed Into Posse Territory*

CAMARGO, IL (5-4-08) The O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions are gearing up to take on some of the toughest competition they will face all season as they head back to Central PA. The notorious "PA Posse" has given fits to the best of the best who have invaded their dirt track territory over the years. In 2008 the All Stars not only bring some of the strongest competitors in recent memory, but they'll also share claim of Posse star Lance Dewease who is currently leading the All Star Championship season points race.

In 2007, it was Mike Erdley who led the way at Williams Grove extending the Posse's domination of racing in Central PA when outsiders come to town. The tough Grove competition filled out most of the Top 10 that evening. The All Stars expect to make things a little tougher on the Posse in 2008 with the addition of some of the top drivers in the sport to the All Star roster.

Following the Grove appearance, the All Stars will travel West to the 6th Annual Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, PA. Lance Dewease took home the top honors in 2006 to bring his career All Star win total to 24. He'll be gunning for #25 this weekend. Other Central PA drivers such as Fred Rahmer, Mark Smith, Jeff Shepard, Keith Kauffman, and 2007 Weikert Memorial winner Greg Hodnett -- along with a full field of great weekly Port Royal regulars -- will try to make things tough for the traveling series.

All Star regulars Dale Blaney, Brock Mayes, Brian Paulus, Paul May, Brandon Martin, Greg Wilson, Paul McMahan, Randy Hannagan, Ryan Myers, Lee Stark, and Brian Ellenberger will try to steal the Bob Weikert trophy and the bragging rights for an All Star win in Posse country. Kenny Jacobs, who was sporting a special Weikert Livestock paint scheme in honor of the respected PA car owner in 2007, is expected to return to Port Royal in 2008 with the All Stars.

The race originally listed on the All Star schedule for Sunday May 11th at Bedford Speedway has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
