IRL AUTO RACING SERIES

MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Sunday, July 30, 2006 on ABC

AAA MOTORSPORTS FAN PLAZA TO ADD SIGHTS, SOUNDS
TO FIRESTONE INDY 400 WEEKEND AT MIS

Source: Michigan International Speedway

BROOKLYN, MI. – The vibrant colors and high-pitched sounds of the IRL IndyCar® Series won’t be the only things tickling fans’ senses during the Firestone Indy 400 weekend at MIS on July 29 and 30. Fans looking to add to their race day experience can venture behind the center grandstand and visit the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza for a full day’s worth of fun, and perhaps a little bit of learning as well.

Corvette enthusiasts will show off their cars for all MIS guests to see at the 5th Annual Corvettes at MIS presented by AutoWeek exhibition. Located conveniently in the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza, the exhibition will give MIS guests a chance to admire Corvettes from the past and present. Celebrity judges will again be on hand to vote for their favorite Corvettes on Saturday. Past judges have included open-wheel great Bobby Unser, current drivers Scott Sharp and Buddy Rice, and 2006 Indy 500 champion Sam Hornish Jr. Fans will be able to vote for their favorite in the People’s Choice Award category on Sunday.

Corvette and racing memorabilia will be available in a silent auction to benefit the National Corvette Museum.

MIS is a facility rich in open-wheel racing tradition, which started with Ronnie Bucknum’s win in the inaugural race in October 1968. While MIS fans look forward to welcoming the current faces of the IndyCar Series, the champions of the past will also be honored for their role in the storied history of open-wheel racing.

Historic cars that were once driven by past MIS champions, including A.J. Foyt, Bobby Rahal, Johnny Rutherford, Rick Mears, Al Unser, and Bobby Unser, will be included in the weekend’s on-track activities, including the pre-race parade on Sunday.

AM910 Radio Disney will bring the fun and excitement of Disney to the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday.

At 12:30 p.m., the D-Tour, Radio Disney’s live interactive show featuring games, dance routines, and family fun in a high-energy DJ format, will get underway. Families from the audience will have the chance to compete for DVDs, fun “wearables” and other goodies while the crowd dances to hits like “Follow The Leader” and “The Cha Cha Slide.”

Beginning at 9 a.m., families will have the chance to register to win a 2007 Hyundai Entourage SE, the new minivan with unsurpassed standard safety features and room to spare. After that, fans can check out the rest of the Ultimate Kids Zone that will feature bounce houses, the Playstation Racing Zone, temporary tattoos, face painting, karaoke and slot car racing.

More information about AM910 Radio Disney and the D-Tour is available at www.radiodisney.com/wfdfam910.

Before leaving for their seats and watching the green flag drop, fans can learn something too as the Amoco Ultimate® @ BP® Tour will be on site. The Tour will feature a tanker with interactive modules to challenge consumers and their knowledge about gasoline. Along with the tanker, the Amoco Ultimate @ BP Tour will feature a dynamometer show that demonstrates different fuel efficiencies and wandering “quizmasters” who will be on hand to ask questions and hand out prizes.

Firestone and AutoWeek will also be on site with extensive displays for fans to see and enjoy.
