INDIANAPOLIS, January 4, 1999 - Paul Diatlovich of PDM Racing reported today a flood disaster which struck overnight at their Clermont shops.

A water main broke during the overnight deep freeze which sent temperatures down to zero. The water cascaded down their driveway with such force it eroded the driveway and sent the debris down into the shops to a depth of two feet. The damage was significant and included two computer systems which were lost with all data.

It is not yet known what the impact will be on the team's preparations for the first round of the Pep Boys Indy Racing League event at Orlando on January 24th.
