TLC Shares the Fast-Paced Lives of "NASCAR WIVES"

January 9, 2009

(Los Angeles, Ca.) Each week, millions of people get on track with NASCAR, following the high-speed drama of America's most popular form of racing. TLC takes these fans inside the rarely seen world of the families racing week to week with the premiere of NASCAR WIVES on Saturday, January 24, 2009 at 10 PM ET, following the network's broadcast of the 2009 MISS AMERICA PAGEANT. Debuting as a one-hour special, NASCAR WIVES will return as a series in late Spring 2009.

NASCAR, the most popular spectator sport in the United States, is known for its intense competition and high-stakes excitement. The one-hour special NASCAR WIVES drives home the sport's energy, thrills, disappointments and constant challenges by following women balancing their own busy lives with the demands of helping their husbands compete in a 200 mph thrilling race where the cars can collide and occasionally plow into the retaining walls.

"Viewers turn to TLC for an insider's view into uncommon lives, and NASCAR WIVES will give an unprecedented look at what happens on and off the track," explains Eileen O'Neill, president of TLC. "NASCAR is a remarkable and respected brand to partner with, and we look forward to exploring both the heart and adrenaline that keeps its fans � 40% of which are female � coming back for more." Some of the women profiled in NASCAR WIVES include:

Kelley Earnhardt � A part of racing royalty, Kelley manages the career of her brother, Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR's most popular driver, and his business JR Motorsports, while also raising her two young daughters.

Delana Harvick � A successful, no-nonsense businesswomen who lives racing 24/7, Delana is co-owner in KHI Racing with her husband Kevin, who has 11 career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins, including the 2007 Daytona 500.

Shana Mayfield � Returning to Clemson University to finish her degree while adjusting to the reality that husband Jeremy, a 15-year NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran, might see a season without racing.

Angie Skinner � Married to Mike, who competes in NASCAR's top three national series, Angie is an author, TV/radio personality, and her husband's business manager. A veteran racing wife, Angie has two stepsons.

"NASCAR is a family sport and a traveling road show, with a tight knit group of competitors barnstorming the U.S.," said Jay Abraham, Chief Operating Officer, NASCAR Media Group. "Throughout a 10-month season, the drivers' wives are the glue holding together each racing family. They are strong and independent women with their own ambitions and goals who maintain their individual identities while supporting their highly visible husbands. NASCAR Wives provides an honest and emotional peek into their experience with our sport."

NASCAR, celebrating 60 years in 2008, holds 17 of the top 20 highest-attended sporting events in the U.S., and is the No. 2-rated regular season sport on television. NASCAR races are broadcast in more than 150 countries and in more than 30 languages.
