CHAMP CAR STAR PAUL TRACY SUFFERS BACK INJURY THAT WILL KEEP HIM OUT OF THIS WEEKEND TOYOTA GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH

LONG BEACH (April 14, 2007) -- Champ Car superstar and America's leading active open-wheel driver in terms of starts, wins and laps led, Paul Tracy, has suffered a compression fracture to his first lumbar vertebrae and will miss this weekend's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Tracy suffered a frontal impact in Turn One during Saturday morning's Champ Car World Series practice at Long Beach. He was taken to St. Mary's Hospital after reporting back pain, where x-rays and further MRI examinations confirmed the injury.

No immediate timetable was given for Tracy's return. Tracy will be replaced in the Forsythe Championship Racing #3 entry by 2005 Champ Car World Series runner-up Oriol Servia.
