Pendleton, IN (January 29, 2003) - The American Speed Association (ASA) has selected Atlanta-based Seals Communications Corporation (Sealsco), as the television producer of the 2003 ASA Racing Series and its 17 events on Speed Channel.

Sealsco is a multi-faceted television production and electronic media marketing company founded in 1984. It is one of the largest independent producers of specialized television programming in the United States.

"After an extensive selection process, we're pleased to have Sealsco involved with us as we enter into our first TV series partnership with Speed Channel," said Steve Dale, President and new majority owner of the ASA. "We have many plans and high aspirations ahead for ASA Racing, our fans, drivers and sponsors. Sealsco's expertise and overall approach fit well into those plans," Dale added.

Through the company's 19-year history its roots are deep in the creation, production and marketing of all types of motorsports programming -- from auto racing to motorcycle racing -- appearing on networks including ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, USA, TNN, and Speed Channel.

"We're excited about our new ASA relationship, and we look forward to working closely with ASA and Speed Channel in continuing to build upon the success of the ASA Racing Series," said Lou Seals, Chairman and CEO of Sealsco.

The American Speed Association is entering its 36th season of nationally touring competition with the ASA Racing Series long considered as the premier short track stock car racing series in the United States. The series has served as a stepping-stone for some of today's most high-profile stock car drivers. Current Winston Cup drivers Johnny Benson (1993 ASA champion), Kenny Wallace (1986 Rookie of the Year), Rusty Wallace (1983 ASA Champion), Tony Raines (1996 ASA Champion), Jimmie Johnson (1998 ASA Rookie of the Year), and four-time ASA Champion Mark Martin launched driving careers into the highest levels of stock car racing through success in ASA competition.

Seals Communications Corporation is a vertically integrated, full-service media, marketing and television production company. Sealsco (www.Sealsco.com) currently produces specialized sports and entertainment programming appearing on networks such as ESPN, ESPN2, ABC, FOX Sports Net, Turner South, Speed Channel and OLN.
