Atlanta, GA. (May 8, 2003) - Inside Track Marketing announced today that a four-race contract has been negotiated between Greenville, SC driver Blair Addis and Focus Golf Systems (Dunlop Golf).

Focus Golf Systems, Inc. is an exclusive licensee of Dunlop Golf for the United States. Based in Greenville, S.C., Focus is dedicated to developing and manufacturing innovative Dunlop-branded golf products for enthusiasts of all levels of play. Working with retail partners across America, Focus makes technologically advanced clubs, golf bags, gloves, and accessories affordable for virtually every budget.

Addis will join forces with Steve Husketh, owner of Premiere Motorsports to run the Premiere Motorsports #98 Ford Taurus in select USAR ProCup events at Myrtle Beach (6/14), New River Valley (7/19), Lakeland (8/30) and Hickory (9/13). Husketh is incorporating Charlie and Robert Long of Long Brothers Racing for support from a personnel standpoint to maximize the program.

Premiere Motorsports is a world-class auto racing operation headquartered in Pittsboro, North Carolina. The company's 38,000 square foot motorsports complex houses a fabrication facility, engine building department, body and paint department, parts department, corporate management offices, a race memorabilia gift shop and a full service upscale restaurant.

Prior to his debut in the USAR ProCup Series, Addis competed at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, where he completed the 2001 season as the highest finishing rookie and landed a solid ninth in overall points. Addis also ran a partial season in the UARA Series.

"Focus Golf Systems is excited to have this opportunity to sponsor Blair in the USAR ProCup Series", said Marketing Director Tom Tiffany. "A large percentage of racing fans are also golfers, so it makes good business sense for us to be represented in this series."

As the first four-car team owner in the history of USAR Pro Cup, team owner Steve Husketh is equally pleased. "We're proud to be fielding a car for a sponsor as prestigious as Dunlop Golf", said Husketh. "We already have three successful Pro Cup teams with the #8 and #68 entries in the South and the #68 entry in the North; the addition of Blair Addis and the Dunlop #98 team makes Premiere Motorsports a force to be reckoned with".
