ASCS EXPANDS WITH ADDITION OF NORTHWEST REGION IN 2008

TULSA, Okla. (November 20, 2007) -- Already with a strong presence throughout a vast majority of the nation, the American Sprint Car Series will be featured from coast to coast in 2008 and beyond with the addition of the ASCS Northwest Region.

In conjunction with Northwest Race Promotions, the newly formed ASCS Northwest Region will sanction approximately 15 events throughout Washington and Oregon in 2008, with plans to expand into Northern California, Idaho and Montana in the following years.

"By aligning with the American Sprint Car Series, the Northwest joins the rest of the country as a part of the most successful winged Sprint Car series in the nation," according to ASCS Northwest Regional Director George Wade.

Included in the inaugural ASCS Northwest Regional tour in 2008 will be the traditional Northwest Speedweek contested during the third week of July.

"We're thrilled that George Wade and Northwest Race Promotions have chosen to bring the American Sprint Car Series to the Upper Northwest," commented American Sprint Car Series founder and President Emmett Hahn. "There's a tremendous base of cars and fans in the Northwest and the new ASCS Northwest series will be a great asset to the American Sprint Car Series."

The addition of the Northwest Region further expands the reach of the American Sprint Car Series, which already extends along the east coast from New York to Florida and westward across the Northern Plains as well as the southern portion of the country and on into Arizona.

The ASCS Northwest Region brings the number of ASCS Regional series to 14 in addition to the O'Reilly American Sprint Cars on Tour National series.

Other ASCS Regions include Canyon, Coastal, Gulf South, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Northern Plains, Patriots, Rebel, Rocky Mountain, Sooner, Southern Tour, Sprints on Dirt and the recently announced Southwest Region.

Set to embark upon its 17th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing throughout the United States in 2008, the American Sprint Car Series sanctioned 189 nights of racing action in 2007 with 866 different drivers competing in at least one event.
