BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (July 22, 2002) - - Dorricott Racing's Jon Fogarty, of Portola Valley, Calif., is headed to the Molson Indy Vancouver this week for a once in a lifetime experience under CART's Mentor Program.

The newly created program is designed to provide up and coming Toyota Atlantic drivers with an insider's view of a CART team during a CART FedEx race weekend. Fogarty was chosen as a participant due to being the Toyota Atlantic point leader following Round 6 at the CART Grand Prix of Chicago.

Fogarty will be with Newman/Haas Racing and its drivers Cristiano Da Matta and Christian Fittipaldi. Fogarty chose Newman/Haas from a list that included Target Chip Ganassi Racing, Herdez Competition, Walker Racing, and Fernandez Racing.

Possible activities may include debriefings, team meetings, plus press and sponsor events, when applicable. Fogarty will also be in pit lane with a team headset during all practice and qualifying sessions and the race. The Molson Indy Vancouver will be held on the downtown temporary street circuit of Vancouver, B.C., Canada, with the CART FedEx race scheduled for Sunday, July 28.
