RICH HISTORY OF DIRT TRACK WORLD CHAMPIONS - ADVANCE TICKETS, PIT PASSES AND
DRIVER PRE ENTRY DEADLINE OCTOBER 10TH

(St. Marys, WV) Race fans and drivers from all over the world have made the
journey since 1981 to be a part in this October dirt racing spectacular, the
Jim Dunn Memorial Dirt Track World Championship. It all started in 1981,
when the Dirt Track World Championship paid $30,000 to win from a total
purse of $80,000. At that time it was double what had been paid on dirt
before. This year the winner takes home $50,000 from a purse that exceeds
$160,000.

In 1981 Jim Dunn had what has to be the Cinderella Story of all time in dirt
track racing, winning the B-main after starting mid-pack. Then coming off
the tail in the feature to capture the first DTWC and a $30,000 payday.
Tragically Jim lost his life in a late afternoon accident in 1983. This
year we are remembering and honoring Jim "back where it all began," at the
Legendary Pennsboro Speedway in the 21st Annual Jim Dunn Memorial Dirt Track
World Championship, brought to you by Simonton Windows.

This year the DTWC returns to it's birthplace, the Legendary Pennsboro
Speedway on Oct. 20th and 21st. The historic memories of the DTWC come to
life with a close look at the two decades of past DTWC winners. The rich
history of DTWC Champions includes, 1981-Jim Dunn, 1982-Charlie Swartz,
1983-Freddy Smith, 1984-Jack Boggs, 1985-Freddy Smith, 1986-Billy Moyer,
1987-Larry Moore,
1988-Donnie Moran, 1989-John Mason, 1990-Jack Boggs, 1991-Freddy Smith,
1992-Ronnie Johnson,1993-Freddy Smith, 1994-Ronnie Johnson, 1995-Jack Boggs,
1996-Billy Moyer, 1997-Marshall Green, 1998-Freddy Smith, 1999-Steve
Francis, and 2000-Wendell Wallace.

Freddy Smith is the only five-time Dirt Track World Champion and the only
driver to make the starting field in every Dirt Track World Championship.
The late Jack Boggs posted three DTWC titles; Billy Moyer and Ronnie Johnson
have claimed two DTWC victories. Defending Champion, Wendell Wallace will
be looking to back up his victory in 2000, with a repeat performance in this
