INDIANAPOLIS, Thursday, March 20, 2003 -- A statement from Indy Racing League President and CEO Tony George regarding upcoming IRL events at Phoenix and Motegi, Japan:

After reviewing information available to us, the Indy Racing League will continue with its current schedule of racing events, including Sunday, March 23 in Phoenix and Sunday, April 13 in Motegi, Japan. We hope and expect to maintain this schedule.

As the country carries out its commitment in Iraq, we are mindful of President Bush's admonition to carry on with our lives. In America, racing has always been identified with patriotic support of our men and women in uniform. We intend to continue that tradition, working closely with our promoters in the United States, with Twin Ring Motegi and Honda Motor Company in Japan, as well as with the governments of United States and Japan to monitor any issues that might arise which could compromise our ability to protect the health and safety of our fans, teams, drivers and staff.

Tony George President and CEO Indy Racing League
