POWERSPORTS ATV TOUR RELEASES UPDATED 2008 EVENT SCHEDULE

WHITE BEAR LAKE, MN (January 21, 2008) -- The WPSA has released an updated event schedule for the 2008 PowerSports ATV Championship Tour. The schedule features eight event venues, two of which will host double header race weekends to accommodate the 10 round WPSA Pro450 MX Championship and the Pro Stock Quad Terrain Championship series. The PowerSports ATV Tour Amateur Championships will be contested during the eight event season with one throw-out race available to the amateur competitors. This will result in a “Best of Seven Races” final scoring format for the amateur and youth classes.

“We worked closely with our sponsors, our riders and other circuits to create a schedule that minimizes conflicts with school obligations and other racing series so that our racers can maximize their seat time and sponsorship exposure throughout the year,” said PowerSports Entertainment, Inc. CEO Rick Murphy. “Several new venues have been added that we feel enhance our ability to provide a high quality racing experience for the racers, families, friends and fans. We have also taken into consideration the positioning of the ATV Championship Tour in larger markets so that we can expand the fan base and reach a broader audience.”

Scott O’Malley, President of PowerSports Entertainment, Inc. stated, “We’re pleased to welcome back the Pro and Amateur teams that have been with us for the last two seasons. This year we expect to see new teams for Can AM and Polaris racing for the Pro 450MX championship, as well as new teams for Suzuki and Polaris in Pro Stock Quad Terrain. With six manufacturers represented in the chase for the Pro 450MX crown and two new factories bidding for the QTC championship there is certainly going to be some entertaining racing action for the fans at the events and our TV audiences at home.”
