Sparta Commercial Announces Upcoming Launch of a New Subsidiary

New Entity Will Offer Motorcycle History Reports

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCBB: SRCO) today announced that it will be launching a new subsidiary in June, 2010, although the name of the new company, and its website, will remain confidential until the launch date.

According to Sparta, the new entity will, for the first time, offer consumers, powersports dealers, insurers, and lenders, an opportunity to review a detailed history of used motorcycles before any financing or insurance coverage is approved, or any purchase is concluded. The reports will show the service record, any accident history, the number of previous owners, and the last documented mileage. For a fee, the new subsidiary's system will track all of the information through the vehicle identification number, a unique identifier for every production vehicle in the world, regardless of the country of origin.

Speaking about the announcement, Anthony Havens, Sparta's CEO, said, "A similar system has been in place in the automotive industry for many years, and very successfully. Given the fact that so many powersports vehicles cost as much, or more, than many of the cars and trucks that are on the road, a system that would provide consumers and all interested parties with the kind of information that would help in the decision-making process about whether or not to purchase or insure a particular vehicle seems logical and wise. So, we decided to get into that business in a strong way, and we expect our new subsidiary to become a trusted and widely used source of important and valuable information, as well as a very successful business over time."

Havens then explained that Sparta wanted to keep the new entity's name and website confidential until its official launch date because premature visits to the website would be counterproductive, and potentially problematic. "We're very excited about the prospects for success for our new venture." Havens added, "And we believe that this activity represents the newest and perhaps the most far-reaching innovation for the powersports industry to come along in many years."
