event as special guests of the Kevin Harvick Foundation and its partners.

In addition to the Monday pro-am, the Kevin Harvick Foundation will host an
expo tent for the entire week of the tournament. The No. 29 Budweiser
Chevrolet show car, a replica of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car Harvick
drives, will be on display for the Kevin Harvick Foundation Pro-Am. In the
foundation expo for the remainder of the week, the No. 33 Chevrolet show car
which Harvick drives in the NASCAR Nationwide Series will be featured with a
special Wyndham Championship paint scheme. At the expo, fans will have
access to information about Foundation programs and upcoming events, plus a
chance to win autographed racing memorabilia.

The Kevin Harvick Foundation is also one of some 50 local and national
charitable organizations that will have chance to win $100,000 from Wishes
by Wyndham, the philanthropic foundation of Wyndham Worldwide. During the

“This is the second year we’ve been fortunate to partner with the Wyndham
Championship for this Pro-Am event,” said Harvick. “I want to thank Mark
Brazil and everyone with the Wyndham Championship for the opportunity. It is
through events like this that we can further the mission of the Kevin
Harvick Foundation and further the dreams of children.”

“The inaugural Kevin Harvick Foundation pro-am was a huge success last year,
and we are very happy to have Kevin and his foundation back at the Wyndham,”
Wyndham Championship tournament director Mark Brazil said. “The Kevin
Harvick Foundation mission to help improve the lives of children fits
perfectly into the Wishes by Wyndham charity program that will award
$100,000 to the charity getting the most votes during the four days of the
actual tournament. We appreciate Bill Johnson and TCDI for their generosity
in making this event happen, and we look forward to helping many children
through our partnership with the Kevin Harvick Foundation.”

The Pro-Am event is one of several Kevin Harvick Foundation events scheduled
throughout the year. The calendar also includes Kevin’s Krew events; Happy’s
Classic golf tournament in November in Bakersfield, Calif.; the John Paul
Linville Memorial Golf Classic in October in Greensboro, N.C.; and the
