Kentucky Speedway announced today it has entered into a marketing partnership with MyWireless to become the official cellular company of the speedway and provide cellular phone service to the track through 2005.

"We are excited about this new partnership. We have been very successful in signing national as well as regional companies for sponsorship," Kentucky Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager Mark F. Cassis said. "MyWireless is a great regional company and with the competitive nature of the cellular category, our teams got creative and this is a great fit for both MyWireless and Kentucky Speedway."

As the "Official Wireless Provider of Kentucky Speedway," MyWireless will receive an event display area at the track, race tickets, facility signage and advertising considerations under the terms of the agreement. MyWireless will provide Nextel cellular equipment and phone credit for Kentucky Speedway employees, provide Kentucky Speedway ticket information in their retail stores and begin development of a Kentucky Speedway cellular phone faceplate among other promotional items.

"MyWireless is certainly excited to become partners with Kentucky Speedway. We look forward to serving the wireless needs of Kentucky Speedway and their great fans with the latest technology that the wireless industry has to offer," said Phillip Hawkins Owner MyWireless.
