Jack Villeneuve will participate in a refresher session April 29 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval.

Dollar General will serve as primary sponsor of the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports car driven by Jacques Villeneuve in the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race on May 25.

Villeneuve, who will participate in a refresher session April 29 on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval, won the 1995 race and was the runner-up as a rookie in '94.

"I have so many wonderful memories of racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway throughout my career, including my last appearance at the track in the Brickyard 400 when I also was sponsored by Dollar General," Villeneuve said. "It's been 19 years since I ran this race, but returning with a team like Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and a household-name sponsor like Dollar General is going to give me a fantastic opportunity to perform at a high level."
