Yokohama Tire Corporation is expanding
its off-road activities, becoming an associate sponsor of the
eight-weekend 2010 Lucas Oil Off-Road Series. The one-year sponsorship
agreement includes track signage and a space in the vendor/pit area.

"Partnering with Lucas Oil and its successful off-road racing series is
another positive step for our expanding motorsports program and benefits
Yokohama in a variety of ways," said Mark Chung, Yokohama director,
corporate strategy and planning. "The series has a lot of exciting
classes and receives a lot of TV coverage which will help us to promote
our Geolandar(r) tire line."

Lucas Oil Off-Road combines the Midwest tradition of short-course
off-road racing with a West Coast influence and features seven classes:
Unlimited 4, Unlimited 2, Unlimited Lite, Super Lite, Unlimited Buggy,
Limited Buggy and Kart. The season is eight weekends and features two
races per day each weekend. There is a 15-race points championship
battle and the final day is the Challenge Cup Shootout. The season kicks
off March 6-7 at the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex, Lake Elsinore,
California.

"We are proud that Yokohama has chosen the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing
Series as the venue to renew their presence in short-course off-road
racing. We value the commitment they are making to the series and our
race teams," stated Bob Patison, Lucas Oil Products executive vice
president.

The last time Yokohama was involved with short-course racing was with
the Mickey Thompson Stadium Series from 1989-1994. In Lucas Off-Road,
Yokohama-sponsored racers will compete in the Unlimited Lite, Unlimited
Buggy and Limited Buggy classes, where the drivers will use
off-the-shelf Geolandar tires.
