Victory Energy Tenth Well Progress Update

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announces that the Corporation has reached total depth on its tenth well in the Canyon Sandstone gas play located in the Texas Permian Basin.

The drilling contractor drilling well #166-7 drilled through the Canyon Sandstone gas zone on Sunday. The crew is now pulling the drill pipe out of the hole to allow the logging crew to run logs in the well bore. After logs have been evaluated on the production zone, Victory will determine at what depth to set casing.

Swabbing on wells #166-8 and #166-3 has been successful to recover enough of the stimulation fluid pumped into the production zone during the frac job. The wells are now flowing natural gas to surface and should be ready for single point testing by June 15, 2008.

"This project continues to exceed our expectations with each well drilled into the Canyon Sandstone gas zone. Our plans are to next drill a deeper well to test the Strawn Limestone zone for commercial gas production," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.

This well, and each Canyon Sandstone gas well in this field, will produce approximately 500,000,000 cubic feet of gas for Victory over a 35-year average production life. A 5,000-foot deep Canyon Sandstone well initially tests at an average of 250,000 cubic feet of gas per day.
