KAHNE TESTING AT IRP FOR POSSIBLE RUN IN THE J. D. BYRIDER 100 USAC SILVER CROWN RACE AT IRP

INDIANAPOLIS (July 26, 2005) Kasey Kahne will be testing his USAC Silver Crown team owned car at IRP on Thursday for a possible run in the J. D. Byrider 100 Silver Crown race on August 4th, during Kroger SpeedFest.

The test will run from 8:00 A. M. until Noon. The team has requested interviews be held following the session. Media outlets will be allowed to gather b-roll and photographs during the session. This test is not open to the public.

Kroger SpeedFest is three nights of pulse pounding racing under the lights at IRP. On Thursday August 4th the stars of the USAC Silver Crown Series will take to the track in the J. D. Byrider 100. On Friday, the Power Stroke Diesel 200, featuring the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will bump and bang all the way to victory lane. The weekend concludes with the 24th annual Kroger 200, NASCAR Busch Series race.

One of five drag racing facilities owned and operated by the National Hot Rod Association, IRP was built in 1960 and has presented organized racing events since 1961. From March through October, the facility hosts more than 120 dates of racing on three tracks, a quarter-mile drag strip, a .686-mile paved oval and a 2.5-mile road course. Home to drag racing's biggest event, the NHRA U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend, the drag strip runs more than 50 days of point-to-point action, from national events to street legal community programs. The oval track draws racing's biggest events, including annual visits from the NASCAR Busch, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and three annual USAC races. The road course provides a home for several racing sanctions, such as SCCA, while providing an ideal resource for driving schools, corporate outings and open-road tests for professional drivers.
