INDIANAPOLIS MOTOR SPEEDWAY GRANTS CREDENTIAL TO SI WRITER

INDIANAPOLIS, May 20, 1999 - Despite its continued objection to the tone of Sports Illustrated's coverage of recent Pep Boys Indy Racing League events, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation will issue a media credential to SI motorsports writer Ed Hinton for the Indianapolis 500 on May 30, Speedway President Tony George said today.

Credentials were granted to Hinton to stem the growing media attention to the matter and to return proper focus to the event, George said.
