FISHER, HAMILTON AND SCHROEDER FEATURED AT PENNZOIL MOTORSPORTS 2000 AUTO RACING TRADE SHOW

FORT WASHINGTON, PA December 20, 1999 . . . Lady racer Sarah Fisher, the youngest driver (19) ever to compete in an Indy Racing League event, will be part of the Indy Racing League display area at the 15th annual Pennzoil Motorsports Auto Racing Trade Show. Fisher, a winner in midget and sprint car racing, is planning to run a full schedule of events on the Indy Racing League circuit in 2000 including the Indianapolis 500. Joining Fisher at the Pennzoil Motorsports 2000 mid- winter happening, set for January 14-16 at the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center, will be veteran Indy car and supermodified racing talent Davey Hamilton. He has been second in the final League standings twice (1997 and 1998) and finished fourth in 1999. Hamilton has started every race on the Indy Racing League schedule since the IRL started in 1996. The talented racer also still competes in short track events in midgets and supermodifieds when his schedule allows. Another Indy Racing League talent scheduled to be at Pennzoil Motorsports 2000 is Vineland, NJ's Jeret Schroeder. The 30-year-old racer competed in the 1999 Indianapolis 500 and ran a selected schedule of sports car endurance events. Schroeder was the U.S.Formula 2000 national champion in 1995. What may be the biggest break of Schroeder's career happened just recently as the Vineland racer was signed to driver the Tri Star Motorsports entry on the Indy Racing League circuit in 2000. Tri Star Motorsports is owned by a group that includes Winston Cup Rookie of the Year Tony Stewart, who is a former IRL champion. "Our goal is to run for the Sprint PCS Rookie of the Year award," said Schroeder, who is quite excited about this new opportunity. All three drivers will be participating in autograph sessions at the Pennzoil Motorsports 2000 Show. They join an already impressive list of motorsports talents appearing at the show, including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Steve Park, Bobby Labonte, Scott Goodyear, Steve Kinser and the legendary four time Indy 500 winner A.J. Foyt. In addition to personal appearances by a variety of top talents in the sport, there will be seminars for show attendees covering a variety of subjects from sponsorship to go-kart racing tips. And there will be the hands on experience of the MotorMax Extreme Motorsports Garage all throughout the three days of the show. There will even be Victory Lane Chapel, twice, on Sunday morning, January 16. The three day show includes more than 270,000 square feet of everything motorsports and there will be more than 500 exhibit booths. More than 150 race vehicles of all types will be on display.
