Auto Central - March 31, 2000 - Top9.com, a web ranking and search directory, has named THE AUTO CHANNEL.com as the Internet's most popular and heavily visited automotive news website for the month of March, 2000. This is the second time in four months that TACH has attained the number one position on the Top9 list: THE AUTO CHANNEL was also at the top in December, third place in January, and second in February.

"The Top 9 ranking again confirms our position as the Internet's best automotive information resource, and the Internet users' overwhelming satisfaction with our presentation style and scope of content.
