DIRT MotorSports and Planetwide Games have announced a licensing agreement to develop and publish a line of video games based on DIRT's touring dirt track series including the World of Outlaws Sprint Series, powered by Planetwide's online technology development engine for Multiplayer Online Games (MOG) for competition and a variety of console game formats.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Series Video Game featuring the drivers of the Mean 15TM for 2006 is scheduled as the first release. This game will immerse the player into the excitement and drama of dirt track racing through the world of interactive entertainment. This interactive racing world will be complimented by the Multiplayer Online Game action and allow gamers the chance to simultaneously experience life in the driver's seat of the true dirt track racing culture of the World of Outlaws Sprint Series. These new games will advance the World of Outlaws past the levels previously achieved with the 2002 Playstation video game.

"We are extremely excited about the power of the World of Outlaws brand and their loyal fan base," said Kevin Donovan - President of Planetwide Games. "Outlaws is a natural fit to showcase Planetwide Games' next generation video game reality engine. This engine will give the gamer the unique opportunity to experience game play that is truly the World of Outlaw Racing. Our reality engine will also allow the gamer to customize their sprint cars, view the race from the racers perspective, and experience dirt track racing from the starting line all the way to checkered flag directly from the driver's perspective. Through these motorsports games, new opportunities abound with our global strategic partnerships, new channel partners and the potential for new in-game advertising in the World of Outlaws".

Online players will be able to test their skills as they create a customized sprint car designed to outperform and outlast the competition from local racers across the country and worldwide. Even drivers who smoke the track one weekend will still have to spend long hours in the garage to stay on top of their game. With 28 years of hard-fought history behind it, this grass-roots "outlaw spirit" is what the success of the real-life touring series is based upon today.
