WALL STADIUM RACERS AND FANS ARE READY FOR
OPEN HOUSE PRACTICE SESSION THIS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ The majority of Wall Stadium's auto racing teams are
expected to be on hand to sort out their new or reconditioned equipment when
the gates of the third mile paved oval are opened for the 52nd consecutive
year for the annual Open House Practice Session this Saturday (March 31) from
1:00 until 4:00 p.m.

The annual Open House Practice Session, in preparation for 2000 Coors
Light/NAPA Auto Parts Racing Series competition, is free to both the
competitors and public.

Optimism is high for the 52nd annual stock car racing season opener on
Saturday evening, April 7. The Neptune Research and Development Modified
stock cars will headline that program in a 30-lapper, the NGK Spark Plug Pro
Stocks will battle in a 25-lap main event, the Garage Door Express Street
Stocks will compete in a 20-lapper, the Monmouth Truck Equipment Truck Series
will battle in a 15-lap main and the Weiss' Boots and Apparel Legend Cars
will open their season at the shore speedway with a 20-lap main. Qualifying
heat races will be a part of the 7:00 p.m. program. Racing, also supported by
Hoosier Tire, will then continue every Saturday night through September.

which includes Demolition Derbies and the annual Monster Truck Spectacular in
addition to auto racing, call the speedway hotline at 732-681-6400 or visit

NGK SPARK PLUGS JOIN FAMILY OF WALL STADIUM
POINT FUND SPONSORS

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ NGK Spark Plugs, a long-time sponsor and product
provider in the major leagues of auto racing, has joined the family of Wall
Stadium point fund sponsors for the fast approaching Wall Stadium. The
combination of NGK Spark Plugs' participation, in addition to the financial
postings of other sponsors, raises Wall Stadium's total point fund awards to
$60,000.

The quality of NGK Spark Plugs is well proven as they are used by such
stock car driving greats as Bobby Hamilton and Joe Nemechek. Major League
open cockpit standouts including Paul Tracy, Dario Franchitti and Michael
Andretti also depend on NGK Spark Plugs. Gary Scelzi, a Top Fuel drag racing
champion, is also among those who depend on NGK products.

NGK Spark Plugs are also offered as original equipment on most General
Motors, Saturn and Chrysler Corporation vehicles. More information can be
found at www.ngksparkplugs.com.

"Wall Stadium is thrilled to have a company with the reputation of NGK
Spark Plugs joining our family of sponsors," marketing director Jeff Gravatt
said. "NGK's participation not only raises the money offered to our races,
but also our standing in the racing community."

"I can't wait to get out to the race track," company spokesman Bob
Keesser said. "There are a lot of people at the race track who use our
products and this is a great way of thanking them for helping to prove the
quality under high performance conditions."

NGK Spark Plugs joins a long list of point fund supporters which includes
Neptune Research and Development, Coors Light, NAPA Auto Parts, Hoosier Tire,
Garage Door Express, Monmouth Truck Equipment, Weiss' Boots & Apparel and Jim
Hagaman Racing Engines. Modified, Pro Stock, Street Stock, Truck Series,
Legend Cars and Three-Quarter Midgets compete in the racing series.

Optimism is high for the 52nd annual stock car racing season opener on
Saturday evening, April 7. For more information on the 2001 Wall Stadium
Racing Series schedule, which includes Demolition Derbies and the annual
Monster Truck Spectacular in addition to auto racing, call the speedway

NEW WALL STADIUM THREE-QUARTER MIDGET DIVISION CHANGES THREE DATES - NEPTUNE
RESEARCH ANNOUNCES POINT FUND BACKING

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Wall Stadium officials have announced a change for
three dates for the Three-Quarter Midget division that will compete at the
third-mile paved oval during the 2001 season. The best interest of
Three-Quarter Midget racing is the reason for the change, according to
officials, as they pointed out that three of the original dates conflicted
with those of local racing clubs.

"I want to make it clear that we will welcome all Three-Quarter Midget
racers," track manager Tucker Nicol said. "We welcome racers from all clubs
to compete. If the clubs want to use our races to offer championship points
to their club members that is fine. We will offer our own points and point
fund, as well.

"Ever since the Pinebrook Speedway closed, many enthusiasts of
Three-Quarter
Midget racing have said that the class needs a home track to survive and
thrive. Wall
Stadium is giving the division that. With the Wall Stadium dates added to the
ones on other Three-Quarter Midgets schedules, it is possible for all of
these racers to compete over 30 times each season. They now have the
opportunity to tour and to race at a home track."

During a recent meeting of racers and officials where the schedule change
was discussed, it was also announced that Neptune Research and Development,
already a sponsor at the speedway, will back the class with a generous point
fund. That, added to the contributions of Coors Light, NAPA Auto Parts,
Hoosier Tire, NGK Spark Plugs, Garage Door Express, Monmouth Truck Equipment,
Weiss' Boots & Apparel and Jim Hagaman Racing Engines, raises the total point
fund for the speedway's six divisions to $60,000

The Neptune Research Three-Quarter Midgets will make their 2001 debut on
Saturday night, April 14, in a 25-lapper that will honor many of the
division's greats. They return on April 22 for their only Sunday afternoon
appearance, before competing again on Saturday night, May 12. June 3 will
offer Three-Quarter Midget racers a Sunday evening event, before the racers
return for Saturday night action on June 30. July offers a double header
weekend as the Midgets will compete on both Saturday and Sunday evenings,
July 14 and 15.

The open-cockpit cars return for action on Saturday, August 11, and on
Sunday night, August 19. Back-to-back Saturday nights are offered on
September 15 and 22, before the Three-Quarter Midgets return for their
traditional Turkey Derby race in November.

Wall Stadium is gearing up for the 52nd annual racing season opener on
Saturday evening, April 7. For more information on the 2001 Wall Stadium
Racing Series schedule, which includes Demolition Derbies and the annual
Monster Truck Spectacular in addition to auto racing, call the speedway
