Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas (March 26, 2002) - The Sports Car Club of America
(SCCA) announced today that it will hold a sports car road racing weekend
at Texas Motor Speedway, July 13 & 14, 2002.

The event, called the SCCA Grand Prix of Texas, is the first SCCA Club
Racing sanctioned event to be held at Texas Motor Speedway, and will be
open to the public. The event will feature all SCCA Club Racing classes
which include sedans, open-wheel formula cars, and sports racers. Racing
will be on the 2.3-mile road/oval course, with each race running 30 to 40
minutes. As many as 300 competitors are expected from throughout the
country, including several SCCA National Champions.

"This is an important event for the SCCA," says Don Howson, SCCA Regional
Executive. "It marks the return of SCCA Club Racing to North Texas, and
has the potential to become one of the premier SCCA race events. Texas
Motor Speedway is one of the finest racing facilities in the country, and
will be key to increasing public awareness of the SCCA and its racing
programs in Texas."

In addition, to the race this year, SCCA has booked six additional weekends
at TMS through the end of 2005.

Tickets, which include paddock/garage access, can be purchased at the gate
for $10 per person, per day, on Saturday and Sunday. In an effort to focus
on making this event truly a family venue, the SCCA has made bringing the
whole family very affordable. Children under 16, accompanied by an adult,
will be admitted FREE. Gates open from 9am to 6pm each day.

Information about the event will be available on the Texas Region SCCA web
site at after May 1.

Sounds like the SCCA is getting access to a good facility. Congrats. My SCCA region is trying to negotiate access to the new Barber Racetrack in Birmingham, AL (open in 2003) which is such an immaculate facility even at the track it is like a darn golf course.
