FOYT, LUYENDYK FINED FOR TEXAS VICTORY LANE CONDUCT

INDIANAPOLIS, July 10, 1997 -- Indy Racing League car owner A.J. Foyt, Jr. has been fined $20,000 and driver Arie Luyendyk has been fined $14,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct in a Victory Lane altercation on June 7 at Texas Motor Speedway following the conclusion of the IRL's Inaugural True Value 500. The fines were announced today by the Indy Racing League. "The IRL must demand and receive discipline and courtesy from our drivers and teams both on and off the track," said IRL Executive Director Leo Mehl.

The money will be donated to the American Red Cross, the IRL's designated charity. Both A.J. Foyt Enterprises and Team Menard have filed appeals with USAC after their protests on the final results of the True Value 500 were denied. The fines imposed by the IRL do not affect the appeal process with USAC.
