Patrick Schaefer, CEO and Executive Producer of Reality Racing, Inc., stated, "With 75 million adult race fans in the United States, reaching 33% of American households, stock car racing is now the #2 sport in the U.S., just behind the NFL. With this type of following and fan base we realized there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who dream of getting behind the wheel and driving to glory, fame and riches...we want to make that dream come true for one very lucky man or woman."

To be eligible for the national tryouts and to appear on "Reality Racing - The Rookie Challenge," male and female drivers must be complete amateurs with no prior oval track racing experience of any kind. They must be over 18 and have a valid U.S. driver's license with no serious traffic offense convictions. Additional restrictions apply. The selected participants will be judged on a point system by existing NASCAR drivers as well as other established and well known pit crew personnel, etc. Areas of judging will include, but will not be limited to: raw talent, on-camera appearance and personality, overall racing desire and on-track racing abilities. Tests, trials and actual races will be held weekly to earn contestants points that will determine such things as rewards and pole position.

Reality Racing Inc.'s new TV show "Reality Racing - The Rookie Challenge" will begin its promotional launch in Nashville, Tennessee on October 15, 2005, as a rookie driver competes for the first time in a major ASA series race.

According to Schaefer, "Our show gives people who believe they have what it takes to be a professional race car driver the chance to live their dream by not only competing against other drivers of similar experience, but knowing that the winner of `Reality Racing - The Rookie Challenge' will be given the opportunity to actually drive professionally as a member of an established, NASCAR sanctioned series race team."
