Harvick wins 2006 Sam's Town Challenge

30 October 2006

TUNICA, Mississippi – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Immediately following the Sam's Town 250 race Saturday, Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD) awarded the 2006 winner of the Sam's Town Challenge to NASCAR Busch Series driver and 2006 Champion Kevin Harvick. This $20,000 check for the grand prize was presented to Harvick, who was the cumulative points leader following the completion of the two Sam's Town sponsored events -- the Sam's Town 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway held earlier this year in March and the Sam's Town 250 -- held this weekend at the Memphis Motorsports Park.

On his way to the Sam's Town Challenge win, Harvick drove the #21 car. He finished first place in both the 2005 Sam's Town 300 and the Sam's Town 250, bettering the finishes of all his fellow NASCAR drivers who competed in the two action-packed Sam's Town races this year.

"We're really excited that the Sam's Town Challenge has become an additional coveted award in the Busch Series," says Dan Stark, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, Boyd Gaming Corporation. "We feel the competition is a great way to show our appreciation to the drivers and are happy to award Kevin Harvick this year's check."

In 2003, Boyd Gaming Corporation initiated the Sam's Town Challenge as an added incentive for drivers and teams to reward the most consistent NASCAR driver in the two Sam's Town sponsored races throughout the year.

The Sam's Town 250 ended excitingly at the Memphis Motorsports Park when Kevin Harvick, driving the #21 car, held off the pack and crossed the finish line on a green-white-checkered flag to secure first place for 2006. This is the 8th win of the year for the 2006 Busch Series Champion.
