Gravity Motorsports Announces Formation of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Team

CONCORD, N.C. (Jan. 18, 2008) - Gravity Motorsports announced today the formation of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team which will compete on a limited basis in 2008 and debut full-time in the series in 2009. Gravity Motorsports will begin operation immediately but will delay formal entry into NASCAR Sprint Cup events, utilizing the 2008 season as a research and development period in order to build the necessary tools and talent to be competitive in their initial debut.

Gravity Motorsports is planning multiple races and test sessions for development during the 2008 season as the Gravity Motorsports competition staff begins building and developing the cars, data and information necessary to debut later in the season.

"We at Gravity Entertainment are pleased to announce the formation of Gravity Motorsports, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team which began operation in early January of 2008," said Steve Gagnon, President of Gravity Entertainment. "Gravity Entertainment understands the opportunity the racing industry provides to companies with a mainstream product to market. It provides access to a large group of dedicated, repeatedly-proven brand-loyal fans who are supportive of the companies associated with NASCAR and its teams. We wanted to utilize the immense opportunity the motorsports industry provides in order to expand and promote our movies, television shows and related companies."

Gravity Motorsports will announce team executives, drivers and sponsors in the coming weeks.

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
