FANS GET READY: SUPER CHEVY SHOW TRACKS AIM TO IMPRESS WITH UNIQUE FEATURE CATEGORY

Kansas City (Dec. 15, 2009) – If you think the months of December and January are for taking time off and vacation, think again. The new owners of the Super Chevy Show series couldn’t be busier. One of the top priorities is arranging a feature category for each of the 10 national events featured on the 30th anniversary season in 2010.

While each of the 10 national events will have some consistency in the type and caliber of entertainment on and off the race track and car show stage, there will be room for local interpretation on what the feature category will be at each venue. The owners of each Super Chevy Show series event has the ability to provide one major feature category – a task they are taking seriously. Each track wants to give fans and participants something exciting, especially in the 30th anniversary of the Super Chevy Show series.

Bill Bader, owner of Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio and host of the June 12-13 event, has already booked the nostalgic Fuel-Altered race cars to feature his Super Chevy Show.

“We are going to have the period-correct, short-wheel base cars from the 1960s that fans love,” Bader said. “They run on nearly 100 percent nitro methane and they are ill-handling cars that travel at speeds topping 230 mph. They are really neat old cars and they need a home because they don’t appear in any other sanctioning body or series.

“We are going to have the Pure Heaven car, the Rat Trap and other fan-favorites and hopefully we can build a future with them in the Super Chevy Show series because they are great nitro-burning cars that add an exciting element to the racing portion of the weekend.”

Firebird International Raceway will feature Nostalgic Funny Cars when the Super Chevy Show rolls into Phoenix for the season finale event, Oct. 23-24. Firebird’s Charlie Allen said he wants to have this particular nitro-burning race car during the weekend to give fans a taste of speed and history.

“Every track owner is excited about finding their unique feature to the Super Chevy Show series,” Allen said. “We are going to have the nostalgic Funny Cars because the nitro coupes run in the five-second range, they burn nitro and they represent a great era of racing.

“These Funny Cars are unique and appeal to all kinds of race fans and car enthusiasts. The Super Chevy Show is going to be quite an event for us in 2010.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROGER GUSTIN SELLS SERIES; SUPER CHEVY SHOW WILL CELEBRATE ITS 30TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP IN 2010

2010 schedule featuring nation’s top tracks to be release soon

KANSAS CITY (Nov. 5, 2009) – The ownership group, SCSW, Inc., put the finishing touches on the purchase of
the Super Chevy Show series today. The ownership group purchased the series from President and owner, Roger
Gustin. The sale was completed this week, giving the new owners time to prepare for the 2010 schedule.
In a series that offers drag racing, car shows, swap meets and collector cars for sale, the new owners want to ensure
a great form of entertainment gets even better for everyone including fans, sponsors and participants. The schedule
will feature some of the nation’s top racing facilities, and will be released soon.

Gustin has been the series owner for 15 years and thinks the sale will only benefit from the change in ownership.
“Now is the time for major changes in the world of motorsports and I think the owners of SCSW, Inc., will bring a
new dimension to the series and will work to make sure the series is around to celebrate more milestone
anniversaries in the future,” Gustin said. “My family and I have been involved with the series for several years and
we are proud that we were able to help the sport grow by working with great sponsors, participants, tracks and Super
Chevy Magazine while cultivating the best fans around.”

Forward Sports Marketing will be the national event coordinator for the series. The agency will work with each of
the 10 tracks to ensure there is uniformity with the schedule and format at each event. Adding localized elements to
each event, however, is what will make the 2010 season unique.

“We are going to work with each of the tracks to make sure there is consistency on some levels, but the tracks will
also be able to put a local emphasis on the event,” Forward Sports Marketing’s Ryan Haas said. “We will manage the
series at a national level and will empower the track operators to manage their specific event to give fans and
participants exactly what they want.”

Haas said the new owners have a passion for creating the best possible product for fans, participants and sponsors.
“Forward Sports Marketing and the track owners are working to develop new feature attractions for the drag racing
portion of the show, and we are already in discussions about adding collector car auctions and televised broadcast to
all events,” Haas said. “The owners are going to make some exciting changes. We’re going to pay more attention to
the car show and add some elements to the events that will attract greater numbers of fans and car enthusiasts.”
Super Chevy Magazine will maintain an exclusive partnership with the series to provide readers and fans the best
and most up-to-date information possible.

“We’re thrilled with the sale because we think a great product is going to be even better,” Jim Campisano, Editorial
Director of GM Performance Group, said. “Roger and his team did a great job with the Super Chevy Show over the
years. The new owners are all personally invested in taking the series to the next level of entertainment and
enjoyment for fans, participants and readers of Super Chevy Magazine.”

Racers, car show participants, fans, vendors, and sponsors alike can call 1-800-692-6230 to receive further
information on the Super Chevy Show series.
