Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club Acquires 120 Acres of Land Adjacent to Facility, Finalizes Improvement Plans

Pahrump, Nevada, May 7, 2012 -- Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club, located just 45 miles from Las Vegas, announced today its successful bid on 120 acres of property immediately adjacent to the facility. The parcel, acquired from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was purchased by modified competitive sealed-bid sale. CEO and co-owner John Morris personally attended the sale at the field office on Torrey Pines Drive in Las Vegas on Monday, May 7, 2012. With the addition of the new parcel, the total size of the facility will now include 313 acres. The final purchase price was not disclosed.

The Motor Resort is planning to immediately improve the property, beginning with a 1.6-mile track extension on the new property, and a .5-mile extension on the current 2.2-mile configuration at turn 4. The new track extension will be 50 feet wide and extremely smooth, due to a special emollient mixed with the asphalt to provide an excellent grip and smooth surface, with exceptional banking, including 102 feet of elevation change with a banked bowl. With this addition, the firm will be able to run 4 simultaneous track configurations, and multiple long track variations for Country Club members, Driving School operations, Track Rentals and Corporate events, with the longest configuration now totaling 6 miles in length.

"We've accelerated our development to realize our vision of Spring Mountain being a world-class motorsports facility," says CEO John Morris. "The acquisition of this new parcel of land from the BLM will allow us to immediately begin our track expansion and to build a lake for the enjoyment of our members, students and guests. After the track addition is complete, Spring Mountain will be the second-longest race track in the world."

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. In Fiscal Year 2011, recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000 American jobs. The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that collects more revenue than it spends. In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a $1.1 billion budget. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
