DIRTcar Racing Sanctions The Nextel Prelude

CONCORD, N.C. — June 4, 2007 — The Nextel Prelude to the Dream
Presented by Old Spice has quickly become one of Eldora Speedway’s
premier annual events. This year, DIRTcar Racing will sanction the
popular Dirt Late Model charity event on June 6 through its
Midwestern arm, UMP DIRTcar.

Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick, Juan Pablo
Montoya, 1995 World of Outlaws champion Dave Blaney and many other of
today’s NASCAR superstars are driving in the third annual event that
benefits the Victory Junction Gang Camp. In addition, the race will
be broadcast for pay-per-view on HBO.

DIRTcar Racing will provide timing and scoring, the World of Outlaws
Mobile Media Center, and a staff of inspectors that will enforce
standard UMP DIRTcar technical rules.

“The Prelude is an exciting event for drivers and fans,” said Ben
Geisler, World Racing Group Executive VP of Operations. “We’re
pleased to bring DIRTcar Racing to the Prelude and to help Eldora
Speedway with equipment and staff to make this major race a memorable
experience for everybody in attendance and watching on HBO.”

Only a handful of tickets are left, and all remaining general
admission tickets must be ordered by phone at 937-338-3815. Fans can
