BRIDGESTONE/FORD CHAMP CAR NEWS -- Champ Car Rookie Katherine Legge To Appear on Tuesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show

INDIANAPOLIS (October 2, 2006) -- Champ Car World Series rookie Katherine Legge (#20 Bell Micro Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) started last week by climbing out of the smoking hulk that once was a PKV Racing Champ Car, and ended it by strapping right back into another 750hp turbocharged rocket, as she tested her backup Champ Car at Sebring International Raceway.

Tuesday, Legge will recount all of her experiences from the last week on the nationally-syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show. The comedienne will discuss the devastating accident that took place at Road America on September 24 with the British driver as well as what it takes to get back in a Champ Car after such an incident. The Tuesday show will also feature former Cheers star Ted Danson and Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder. The syndicated talk show is shown daily Monday through Friday, fans are asked to check their local listings to air times in their areas.

Legge will resume her chase for the Roshfrans Rookie-of-the-Year trophy in three weeks as the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford heads to Australia for the October 20-22 Lexmark Indy 300, run on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
