press release

When the Safety First Suzuki GSXR 600's take to the track this year, they will be
astride Michelin tires. Team Owner Kevin Hanson indicated, "I am really looking
forward to this year, both riders have been on Michelin in the past, and we'll be
able to test and develop some compounds for Michelin as the year goes along.
Michelin is excited to be on board with Safety First with our kids safety program
due to their bicycle tire production. It's the purest reflection of a "win-win"

Rider Bobby Fong commented, "I am very pleased and excited to be offered the
opportunity to compete on the Michelin tires for my first professional year in the
AMA FX and Supersport racing season. With Michelin's help in 2006, I was able to
achieve 2 AFM championships as well as high point scorer in the AFM series. I am
proud to know that Michelin Tires will once again provide me with the finest tires

"I am also really excited to be working with Michelin again this season" quoted
rider Scotty Ryan. "I always know that Ron Wood, Tommy Mason and Walt Schafer are
going to point me in the right direction. I think that the familiarity that Bobby
and I have with the Michelins combined with Jim and Kevin's expertise with the
Suzuki's - we will have a really strong team this season."

Ron Wood, Michelin's Manager of Road Racing and Sales added, "Michelin is proud to
be associated Safety First Racing for 2007. The 2007 AMA race season should prove to
be interesting with the addition of exciting new riders, Bobby Fong and Scott Ryan.

a family oriented company and the kids program fits well with our company."
