Nextel Communications Named Title Sponsor of NASCAR's Premier Series – “The NASCAR Nextel Cup Series” NEW YORK (June 19, 2003) – The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) today announced that Nextel Communications will become the title sponsor of NASCAR's premier national series – and one of America's most popular sports. Under the 10-year agreement, Nextel, a leading provider of wireless communications services on the largest all-digital wireless network in the country, will have unlimited opportunities to market and promote the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series, beginning in the 2004 season. “Nextel is a partner with a strong brand, a bright future, and a vision for growing our sport,” said NASCAR Chairman Bill France. “They are one of the most technologically advanced and an acknowledged leader in a sector that helps drive the U.S. economy. The serious and substantial commitment Nextel brings to our sport will benefit the fans, drivers, teams, owners and tracks.” “It's unmistakable that NASCAR and Nextel have a shared passion for performance, innovation, loyalty and excellence,” said Nextel President and CEO Tim Donahue. “We can't wait to begin this new chapter in NASCAR-Nextel history, and to connect with everyone involved in the sport. This is a truly monumental day for us.” “This is a perfect fit,” said NASCAR Vice Chairman and Executive Vice President Brian France. “Technology is an emerging area of growth for NASCAR and its fans – who have a penchant for using wireless communications. Nextel will be able to promote its association with NASCAR in a variety of media, targeting fans across the country. While NASCAR is No. 1 in fan brand loyalty, No. 2 on television, and No. 3 in licensed products sales, our objective is to continue to grow our sport and to expand and diversify our sponsorship base.” The NASCAR Nextel Cup Series will consist of 36 championship points races at 23 tracks in 19 states, including events in the Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas/Ft. Worth and Miami markets.

NASCAR's reach is unmatched and we're thrilled to be associated with it.” In the most recent survey of sports properties, conducted by Street & Smith's Sports Business Journa
