MID-RACE INCIDENT PUTS AN END TO FISHER'S DAY IN IOWA
Fisher Finishes 22nd in Iowa Corn Indy 250 After Making Contact with the Turn-4 Wall

NEWTON, IA. (June 20, 2010)-Sarah Fisher Racing (SFR) driver/team owner, Sarah Fisher, finished in the 22nd position in the Iowa Corn Indy 250, after a mid-race incident on lap 94, involving contact with the turn-four wall. The 29-year old veteran IZOD IndyCar® Series driver was pushed up into the marbles and forced to end her day early at Iowa Speedway. A disappointed Fisher was uninjured in the incident.

"It was a racing accident," said Fisher, who will be putting the owner's hat back on for the Mid Ohio race on August 8, while Jay Howard pilots the SFR No. 66 Service Central machine. "There's just not a whole lot of room out there, so when you enter a corner and go in two-wide and there's a lack of grace, it makes it tough to go in on the top. The marbles are bad here anyways, and I almost had it but just got in the marbles after being run a little high there."

Andretti Autosport's Tony Kanaan took the checkered flag, followed closely by Team Penske's Helio Castroneves.

Fisher plans to stay plenty busy during the team's six-week break from the racing circuit, running day to day operations at the team's race shop on the Westside of Indianapolis and making a stop in Washington, D.C. early this week to endorse the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy's Drugged Driving Campaign.

The IZOD IndyCar® Series returns on Independence Day for the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen at Watkins Glen International Raceway, which will be the 9th race of the 17-race 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season.
