Fernandez Ready to Challenge in Kentucky

The IRL IndyCar® Series hits the road again this weekend with the Belterra Casino Indy 300 -- the first of three back-to-back races in August. Adrian Fernandez, the series' only competing owner/driver, will be preparing for his first career start on the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway tri-oval. Fernandez has claimed his best IndyCar Series finishes on the 1.5-mile circuits, with a fifth-place run at Texas and a sixth-place drive at Kansas. He participated in a manufacturer's test day at Kentucky last Thursday.

Adrian Fernandez, #5 Quaker State/Telmex/Tecate Panoz G Force/Honda/Firestone:

"We had a good test at Kentucky last week, which was my first time at this track. It is a nice facility, and I think we learned some things that will help us this weekend. As a team, we have been strong on the mile-and-a-half circuits. The season is really flying by, and I know we are capable of finishing at the front. Hopefully, we can put everything together Sunday."
