Conquest Racing Statement on Team's Status for the 2009 Season

INDIANAPOLIS (February 1, 2009) - The following is a statement from Conquest Racing in response to a story that was posted on Speedtv.com.

Eric Bachelart, Conquest Racing team owner: "No matter how hard the current economic situation is making things for us in the racing world and everywhere else, never once did I think of closing the doors of Conquest Racing. I had two options in front of me. One was to reduce the number of employees while moving ahead on finalizing our program for 2009. The other was to ask the employees to take a salary cut and stay with the team while we move forward. I'm really happy that everyone has decided to stay together and that I didn't have to layoff anybody.

"We're a close group at Conquest Racing and we're excited about the upcoming season. Our cars are ready to go racing per the 2009 rules and we hope to be at the test in Homestead in a few weeks time. We're confident that we will succeed in putting together a strong program for the 2009 season. We are in contact with many potential sponsors and we should hopefully have deals finalized in a matter of weeks."
