Although it is difficult to believe, we have already successfully completed seven races of the inaugural season of the United States Formula Three Championship Powered by Volkswagen, and, at this time, I want to thank all of the teams that participated for their support as well as all of the suppliers.

With four races to go, we are pleased to say several drivers can still win the USF3 championship title. Our Volkswagen motors are now 'near perfection' in their durability and reliability, and our Dallara and Ralt chassis are amongst the most technically advanced in all motorsports. Indeed, the future of USF3 is strong.

Please note, our management team is working on the 2001 schedule and other ways to improve USF3. Tom and myself have complete confidence in our staff to make USF3 the premier international category of open-wheel, open-cockpit, single-seat racing in North America.

THE VOLKSWAGEN-POWERED USF3 CARS WILL RUN AT IRWINDALE SPEEDWAY ON OCTOBER 28 FOR MEDIA MORE INFORMATION / MEDIA CREDENTIALS CONTACT: DOUG STOKES @ (626) 358-1100
