 2008 Season upon us


ALTAMAHAW, N.C.- A busy season is scheduled for Ace Speedway. Practice
will start tomorrow from ll:00am until 3:00pm. Open practices are
scheduled for each Saturday until opening night, March 28.

Ace Speedway season will start with a bang. The first race will be the
Dave's Discount Furniture Warehouse 210. It will be a 100 lap event for
Late Models. Bonus money will be awarded for the eight 100 lap events for
the Budweiser Challenge 100. For the Mini Stocks it will be a 50 lap event
with $500.00 to win along with the regular Limited Sportsman, Xtreme and
Southern Ground Pounders classes.

Also included in this years events are STPA Tractor Pulls, a National
Concert May 10th, and car shows. More detailed information will be coming
about these events.

We have returning our regular stars, defending Champion Rodney Cook,
Dustin Rumley, Robert Turner, Speedy Faucette, Jesse Ingle, and Dean
Fogleman. Included in these will be Todd Massey who is planning on being
with us but is still working out details on which team he will be with at
this time. Former competitor and local fan favorite R.D. Smith will be
returning to the wheel of his Late Model after a brief absence from
racing. We were pleased to receive information that Dane Rudolph has
signed a deal with Sellers Racing to run Ace Speedway for the 2008 Nascar
Whelen All American Series.

Don Cook and Richard Bailey will be moving to the Modified division and
are sure to be tough competitors for the likes of Roy Cook, defending
Champion Brad Allen, Jason Cook and Thomas Scott. Also returning to racing
is Phil Bryant who will be competing in the Modified division.

For the fans that have been with us a while, if you remember Steve Hatley
that was very successful in our Super Stock class, he will be returning
this year with his son at the wheel and Steve as owner and crew chief in
the Limited Sportsman Division.

There are just too many good things happening and too many good stories
developing to get it all in one press release. There will be more
information coming as we kick off our 2008 season. Please plan on joining
us at Ace Speedway for one of the most exciting seasons planned. Below is
our schedule for 2008.
