INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 23, 2004) - Andretti Green Racing (AGR) announced today it has signed Forsythe Solutions Group, Inc. to an increased associate sponsorship deal in support of the #27 Archipelago Exchange (ArcaEx) Honda-powered Dallara with driver Dario Franchitti for the 2004 Indy Racing League (IRL) IndyCar® Series season.

Forsythe, which has served as a national provider of technology infrastructure solutions to organizations across all industries since 1971, is returning to Andretti Green after beginning its relationship with the team in 2003 as an associate sponsor.

"We're very pleased to announce Forsythe's return as an associate sponsor at Andretti Green Racing," said Michael Andretti, who co-owns Andretti Green Racing with Kim Green and Kevin Savoree. "Forsythe is a very successful organization and is an industry leader, which makes it an excellent partner for our race team."

Forsythe became part of the sponsorship package on the #27 entry beginning with the 87th running of the Indianapolis 500 and then continued on through the remainder of the 2003 season. During its time with AGR last season, Forsythe enjoyed a front-row start in the Indy 500 with driver Robby Gordon, a win in the Kansas Indy 300 with driver Bryan Herta and seven top-five finishes. Gordon and Herta both worked as substitutes for Franchitti, who missed the majority of the 2003 season due to a back injury sustained in a motorcycle accident in April and subsequent back surgery in July.

"Forsythe's focus on delivering IT risk management solutions to its customers is actually synergistic with AGR's focus on winning while minimizing risk on the track." said Don McDowell, Vice President of Server Solutions at Forsythe. "Forsythe is proud to partner, for the second consecutive year, with AGR."

Andretti Green Racing, which was founded in 2002, is fielding a league-high four entries in the IndyCar Series in 2004, all of which are powered by Honda engines. Along with the Scotsman Franchitti, AGR features drivers Tony Kanaan of Brazil, Californian Bryan Herta and Englishman Dan Wheldon.
