Oriol Servia to Carry the "Visit Mexico City" Colors at the Indy 500

Oxnard, CA -- Pacific Coast Motorsports and the Mexico City Tourism Board announced today that they have entered into an agreement with KV Racing Technology for the 2008 Indy 500. Oriol Servia, driver of the #5 Angie's List Special will carry the Visit Mexico City logo at the 92nd running of the Indianapolis 500.

Pacific Coast Motorsports and the Mexico City Tourism Board announced their program just one month ago. The rookie team and driver missed the 33rd starting spot in final qualifying last Sunday after a remarkable performance, which placed Dominguez "on the bubble" Sunday afternoon. Team Owner, Tyler Tadevic commented, "I have to thank Jimmy (Vasser), Kevin (Kalkhoven) and Mark (Johnson) for offering their help. We gave it our best shot this month, but at the end of the day; despite Mario's impressive performance, we just did not have the track time and preparation time to get into the show. It is very important that our partners, the Mexico City Tourism Board participate in the event and receive the additional exposure they deserve. We are very grateful and honored that Oriol will carry their colors."

Oriol Servia will make his first Indy 500 start from the inside of row nine, in the 25th starting position on Sunday. Although he is a rookie in the IndyCar Series, Servia is currently ranked eighth in the Series points standings, "I am proud to carry the Visit Mexico City colors for my friend Mario Dominguez. Mexico City is one of my favorite places to visit. I love the city and the people, plus some of my closest friends are from there. I hope to give everyone in Mexico City a result they will be proud of on Sunday."

Pacific Coast Motorsports will return to IndyCar competition next weekend at the ABC Supply Co. AJ Foyt 225 at the Milwaukee Mile. Rookie practice kicks off Friday, May 30th at 4:00 pm. Saturday features final practice and qualifying with the 225 lap race at 3:00 pm on Sunday, June 1st.
