Victory Energy Registers Gas Well Holdings in Texas

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announced today it successfully recorded, with the state of Texas, the ownership interest in a six term assignment having six producing gas wells, previously acquired in the Texas Permian Basin.

These interests are now recorded under the Corporations name in Crockett County, Texas. This recorded interest of each term assignment is 50% of the 100% working interest and 50% of the 74% net revenue interest. 26% of the interest is set aside for royalty interest owners of each lease.

Funds for the transaction were provided by a private institutional investment group in exchange for a portion of Victory's interest ownership in each term assignment. Currently Victory maintains 15% of the interest ownership until such time the revenues have paid back the original investment, then Victory's interest ownership will increase to 25%.

"Our delay in recording this interest was due to contractual obligations required to close this transaction. We are pleased to finally announce the interest recording of this term assignment to our shareholders as it demonstrates the Corporation is targeting the long-term goals of increasing shareholder value," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.
