Johnny Unser Racing - May 23, 1998

Indy Preview

Johnny Unser & the Hemelgarn Racing Team are ready for tomorrow's Indy 500, after a successful practice session during Thursday's Carburetion Day proceedings. Johnny & the team were able to work on the car's setup for race day, and were happy with the results.

"We made a few changes", said Johnny, "and I think that they worked out well. After being on the bubble last weekend, I'm really looking forward to being ableto get out and race tomorrow. We'll be starting from near the back, so we'll just be looking for a good clean start, and let the traffic sort itself out for the first few laps. It's a long race, but we've got a really great car and crew, and I think we'll be there at the end."

Johnny & the rest of the field may have to wait a while for the start tomorrow, as the forecast is for showers in the morning. The latest report, however, has the rain clearing out by midday, leaving a nice afternoon for the running of the 1998 Indy 500.

We will have a full recap , along with Johnny's comments, following the race both on our mailing list and on our website. In the meantime, you might want to check out our all new Johnny Unser Racing Gear in the new Unser Store at www.unser-racing.com.

Thank you again for your support. We're looking forward to a great race!
