NEW HOMESTEAD TRACK TO HOST INDYCAR SPRING TRAINING

DETROIT (June 24, 1995) -- Just as Major League Baseball converges on the Sunshine State to practice each February, the stars and cars of the PPG Indy Car World Series will make the newly constructed Homestead Motorsports Complex the site of INDYCAR SPRING TRAINING the week of February 5, 1996.

The week-long testing event will kick-off with three media days on February 5-7 in addition to being open to the public the entire time. The PPG Indy Cars will test on both the Homestead facility's 1.5 mile oval circuit and the complex's road course configuration.

"INDYCAR SPRING TRAINING will be the ideal way for both the media and the public to take a first look at the 1996 PPG Indy Car World Series contenders on the new Homestead Motorsports Complex.," said IndyCar President and CEO Andrew Craig. "February has traditionally been a popular month for motorsports in Florida and IndyCar Spring Training should provide a reason for both the media and race fans to make the trip a little bit sooner."

The 1996 PPG Indy Car World Series will open with the Marlboro Grand Prix of Miami on the oval at Homestead Motorsports Complex on March 3.

"As the southern-most track in the United States, the weather is going to be incredibly good at that time of year," said Miami Motorsports President Ralph Sanchez. "We're honored to have INDYCAR SPRING TRAINING here and we look forward to hosting the PPG Indy Cars for many years to come. It's going to be exciting to unveil all of the driver, team and sponsor combinations for the new season."

INDYCAR SPRING TRAINING will feature national television coverage from the event as well as other promotional activity. The event will also include pre-season planning meetings for IndyCar competitors, sponsors and promotes in addition to off-track media events and press conferences. Further details will be make available in the near future.
