O?REILLY USMTS SOUTHERN SERIES 2008 SLATE REVEALED

HOUSTON, Texas (Jan. 10) ? United States Modified Touring
Series officials announced the 2008 schedule today for the
O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series. The current schedule
boasts 22 dates at 13 unique racetracks in five different
States, with encore appearances at eight of the best
facilities from 2007 and five new venues that are sure to
become instant classics.

Three or four additional dates will also be added to make
for as many as 26 races on this season's campaign.

The sophomore season of the O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series
will begin on Friday, April 18, at the Golden Triangle
Raceway Park (formerly Motorama Speedway) in Beaumont,
Texas, for a $2,000-to-win event, followed up on Saturday,
April 19, with another $2,000-to-win show at the Gator
Motorplex in Willis, Texas.

Back-to-back doubleheaders are slated for the next two
weekends, beginning on Friday, April 25, at the Sabine
Speedway in Many, La., followed by three straight races
where the USMTS banner will fly for the first time in
series history.

On Saturday, April 26, the USMTS banner waves over the
Pike County Speedway in Magnolia, Miss., for the first
time ever as the O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series invades
for a blockbuster event. The following weekend finds the
mud-slinging masters at the Lake Country Speedway in
Ardmore, Okla., on Friday, May 2, before moving on to the
Cowtown Speedway in Kennedale, Texas, on Saturday, May 3.
All three shows will carry a $2,000 top prize.

Other first-time venues include the I-30 Speedway in
Little Rock, Ark., on Wednesday, June 4, and Gene Boyter's
popular Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La., on Thursday,
June 5. The O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series makes a return
visit to the I-30 Speedway on Friday and Saturday, Oct.
3-4, as the headlining act for the 10th Annual Topless
Modified Nationals at Joe Clay's quarter-mile high-banked
oval.

The 2008 season will again wrap up with the 2nd Annual
Texas Winter Nationals at the Houston Raceway Park in
Baytown, Texas. The three-day show on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, Dec. 4-6, will feature a possible $9,000 to win
for one lucky and talented driver. Thursday's show will be
worth $2,000 to the winner, while Friday's main event
carries a $3,000 top prize and Saturday's winner takes
home $4,000.

Like each of the four regions comprising the O?Reilly
USMTS National Tour, the O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series
will boast a separate points fund and awards. Drivers
competing in the O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series will have
the opportunity to qualify to compete in The Hunt for the
O?Reilly USMTS National Championship. The top-10 drivers
in O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series points at the start of
?The Hunt? on Aug. 8 are qualified, along with all other
drivers that have perfect attendance at O?Reilly USMTS
Southern Series events through Aug. 7.

The USMTS will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary Season
in 2008 with many special promotions to show thanks to the
fans, drivers, team members, families and sponsors who
have helped make the USMTS the premier dirt modified
series in the nation. More announcements about the 2008
season will be forthcoming over the next few weeks.

The O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series gives top drivers from
Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas and
surrounding areas a competitive campaign that pits the
best of the best in Modified racing under the banner of
America's top Modified touring series. More than 400
different drivers from 15 different States competed with
the O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series in 2007. Eight-time
O?Reilly USMTS National Champion Kelly Shryock is the
defending champ of the O?Reilly USMTS Southern Series, but
it is unclear whether he will again venture far from his
hometown in Fertile, Iowa, to defend his title in 2008.

The American Racer KK704 is the Official Racing Tire of
the USMTS. Drivers not wishing to compete for points
and/or points funds have the option of using the stamped
Hoosier G60 tire. There is no requirement that a driver
purchase a USMTS license in order to compete in any USMTS
event. However, benefits enjoyed by licensed drivers
include bonus payouts, reduced entry fees, increased tow
money, contingency awards, points funds, provisional
starting spots, increased media recognition, a
personalized driver profile page at www.usmts.com and
more.
