Cartoon Network is joining forces with Kellogg�s NASCARtoon Racing to offer NASCAR�s youngest racing fans the opportunity to collect up to six exclusive Hot Wheels� NASCARtoon Racing REV-UPS� racecars. Hot Wheels� REV-UPS� use Magna Trax� Technology to climb steel surfaces with ease.

This exclusive self-liquidating offer is presented now through Sept. 30, 2006, or while supplies last.

�NASCAR enjoys perhaps the largest and most diverse fan base of any sport today, from young children to grandparents,� said Phyllis Ehrlich, senior vice president, promotions marketing for Cartoon Network Sales and Marketing. �Kids are always looking for ways they can imagine their own NASCAR adventures, so this on-pack promotion with Kellogg provides a timely opportunity for them to collect six different play-size models that reflect the full-size cars they see at the track or on television. And in addition to the cars themselves, pit crews for each NASCARtoon Racing car will be outfitted in custom-themed Kellogg�s NASCARtoon Racing gear showcasing their individual Cartoon Network character.�

Kids can receive one free Hot Wheels� NASCARtoon Racing REV-UPS� and a 13-inch piece of track by mailing four UPC proof-of-purchases and the official order form from specially-marked packages of Kellogg�s cereal.
