This new relationship with NASCAR reflects 4DCard's expansion into auto racing.

Acknowledged as an industry leader in its unique styling, quality graphics and innovation, this new line of NASCAR-licensed Interactive Trading Cards are poised to meet the standards and expectations of more than 75 million loyal NASCAR fans.
"It's an enormous honor to partner with NASCAR, and we are excited to bring our award winning-digital design to the sport," said Thomas Carter, 4DCard founder and CEO. "NASCAR fans will soon enjoy the excitement of NASCAR digital content on collectible Action Cards."
"NASCAR is excited to partner with a leader in producing digital sports and entertainment media properties for this unique series of premium and collectible merchandise," said Blake Davidson, NASCAR's managing director of licensed products. "NASCAR fans' passion for the sport and its drivers extends beyond the track. These fans are early adopters of new technology-based products, particularly those relating to their favorite drivers. We believe 4DCard's digital Collectible Cards will serve as another way for fans to bring NASCAR into their lives."
4DCard will launch the program this fall with its NASCAR Essentials Series Premium titled NASCAR's Classic Moments. The Premium introduces the CD-ROM/DVD based product to NASCAR fans and will be distributed through 4DCard's event marketing team to be on location at 2007 stops in Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix.
