DIRT MotorSports(TM) Launches 2006 Racing Season During Volusia Speedway Park's 35th Annual Winternationals; Volusia Speedway Park is One of Four DIRT-Owned Facilities in the United States.

NORMAN, Okla. -- DIRT MotorSports(TM) (DIRT) (OTCBB:DMSP) announced that the World of Outlaws(R) Sprint Car Series will officially kick off its 2006 season on Feb. 9 during Volusia Speedway Park's 35th Annual Winternationals. Volusia Speedway Park's Winternationals will also showcase a variety of DIRT racing series events including the World of Outlaws(R) Late Model Series, the Advance Auto Parts Modified Super DIRT Series as well as the UMP Super Late Models and Modifieds.

Led by 2005 stars Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl, Daryn Pittman, Donny Schatz and Brooke Tatnell, the Outlaws 2006 season promises to be one of the most competitive in history entering its 29th year of thrilling fans from coast to coast. With Volusia only a little more than 30 minutes from Daytona Beach, FL, and all of the racing action on Florida's Atlantic coast, fans no doubt will be the biggest winners during Speed Weeks, especially considering the schedule of events.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series highlights the first week of racing at the Volusia dirt track, but the action will be nearly non-stop for two weeks beginning Feb. 7 when the All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series opens the event. The All Stars will sanction races Feb. 7-8 and Feb. 11-12. The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes over Feb. 9-10 before the UMP Super Late Models invade for races Feb. 13-15 and again on Feb. 17. The UMP Modifieds will be the busiest during the two weeks, running events nightly from Feb. 7 through Feb. 14. The Advance Auto Parts Modified Super DIRT Series will run Feb. 15-18 and the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will highlight the second weekend of action with events on Feb. 16 and the finale on Feb. 18.

"No matter what type of cars you like to watch race, you'll probably see them compete at Volusia in February," said DIRT MotorSports Vice President and CFO Brian Carter. "The action seems as if it's non-stop night after night, day after day. For some it will be the first chance to really shake down their cars for the 2006 season, but for some of the sprint car drivers it will just be a continuation of everything they've been around the world doing during the winter."

The Outlaws national touring drivers already are making headlines too. Since the 2005 season ended at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Brooke Tatnell and Donny Schatz have posted victories in Australia, Craig Dollansky earned a trip to Victory Lane in New Zealand, and Daryn Pittman took the checkered flag in action during the Short Track Nationals in late October in Arkansas.
