San Antonio, TX (May 12, 2005) – San Antonio Speedway (SAS) is pleased to announce that a representative from NASCAR will be visiting the speedway on Saturday, May 21.


Kevin Nevalainen, who is Senior Account Executive with NASCAR, will be at SAS next weekend. He reports directly to Don Hawk, who is the Director of NASCAR Regional Racing Development. Nevalainen handles several major sponsors for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series (NDWS), and he is helping Hawk oversee NDWS tracks and activities.


Nevalainen’s visit will be focused on a number of different areas. First of all, he wants to meet the new owner and manager of the USRA Track Management Group that assumed responsibility for San Antonio Speedway on March 24, 2005. Secondly, Nevalainen wants talk with the SAS competitors to discuss all the positives of being involved at a NASCAR Sanctioned track.


“The NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series is grassroots racing at its finest,” said Nevalainen. “San Antonio Speedway is located in a great market, and we’re happy to have them as a member of the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series. The speedway has been a great partner of ours in the past, and we’re looking forward to continuing that relationship with the new management, as well as the competitors, fans, and sponsors,” added Nevalainen.


Terry Dickerson, president of the USRA Track Management Group, is very excited about Nevalainen’s visit. “I really appreciate NASCAR’s interest in San Antonio Speedway. They feel it’s one of the most promising speedway’s in the country, and they want to help us make it succeed,” commented Dickerson.


San Antonio Speedway is a half-mile NASCAR-sanctioned oval asphalt track that is located at 14901 State Highway 16 South (Poteet Highway), about 3.5 miles south (outside) of Loop 410. The speedway can be accessed easily by taking IH 35 South and exiting on Highway 16 South (left exit), just past South Park Mall. The race hotline number is (210) 628-1867, and the speedway's website can be found at http://www.sanantoniospeedway.com.
