For Immediate Release -- November 5, 2004


Acquisition Brings Fresh Face and Old Values to Asphalt Racing


The ROMCO racing series was started by Robert Mullins in 1999. Mr. Mullins was a driver who needed a venue and a way to promote his company and thus the Series was born. At first the Series ran on three tracks, San Antonio Speedway, Thunderhill Raceway, and Houston Motor Speedway. Over the next six years the Series grew at a phenomenal rate. They expanded to the largest venue in Texas, Texas Motor Speedway and drew fans from all over the state. Today the Series enjoys an extremely dedicated fan-base at five different tracks for some of the most exciting racing in Texas.


Terry and Tammy Dickerson of Trackside Entertainment have reached an agreement with Mr. Mullins to purchase the series. Terry Dickerson, previous co-owner of Lone Star Speedway for the past four years, was the recipient of Texas Motor Speedways Lanny Edwards Award in 2004. Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, TX. is a dirt track that hosts weekly races and special events such as O'Reilly SUPR late models and The World of Outlaw Series late models and sprint cars.


The ROMCO Series will undergo a moderate face-lift including a Series name change as well as a logo change, although the new name and logo have yet to be released. The company also looks to expand to new tracks beyond the 2004 Schedule which included Texas Motor Speedway, Thunder Hill Raceway, San Antonio Speedway, Corpus Christi Motor Speedway and the Houston Motor Speedway. Other series may also be added to the roster in the future. Trackside Entertainment aims to put the racing back into the hands of the driver and their crew and move away from the politics of money. "I want to make the racing more exciting for the fans and more affordable for the drivers and their teams." says Dickerson. A very thorough three-year plan will be implemented to insure the success of the series. The company is also negotiating to bring in several major sponsorships to the series and offer contingencies for the drivers and their teams. The acquisition has been finalized as of today.


Trackside Entertainment would like to thank Mr. Mullins for his hard work and dedication not only to the Series but to the sport itself. Not only did he devote six years of his life to making the Series what it is today, but he paved the road to success for late model racing for years to come. For that we are truly grateful.


Mr. Mullins would like to thank the officials and the drivers for all of their hard work and dedication and the fans for their devotion to the sport. Mr. Mullins would like to give a special thanks to Terry and Linda Barden without whom the success of the series would not be possible.
