Edmonds, WA, March 7, 2002: Kart2CART's flagship program, sponsorship assistance of Lynx Racing's Grant Ryley, kicks off the 2002 season in Monterrey, Mexico. Ryley will compete with Kart2CART sponsorship at the opening round of the CART Toyota Atlantic series as the support event for the Tecate/Telmex Grand Prix of Monterrey at the Parque Fundidora in Monterrey, Mexico on March 9.

Kart2CART is under the direction of long-time computer executive, Rick Waddell. Waddell started Kart2CART last year assisting several drivers compete in the Toyota Atlantic Championship. Kart2CART's main focus and simple goal is to assist American drivers as well as support personnel gain valuable experience and guidance in furthering their motorsport careers.

"At the time we started Kart2CART, there were virtually no American drivers except Michael Andretti and Jimmy Vasser in CART racing," said Waddell. "I started Kart2CART as a means to assure that we do everything possible to help prepare the next generation of American drivers compete at the highest level of open-wheel racing."

To date, in addition to Grant Ryley, Kart2CART has assisted Pete Mercier, Case Montgomery and Andy Lally. Additional programs at the karting level of open wheel racing are planned for the coming season.
