SOMMERS NAMED TO IMS PUBLIC RELATIONS POST

INDIANAPOLIS, March 3, 1999 -- Lisa Sommers has been named manager of public relations, Indianapolis Motor Speedway special events, effective immediately. In the new position, Sommers will coordinate public relations efforts for the Brickyard 400, the TransWorld Diversified Services Indy 200 at Walt Disney World Speedway, the IROC at Indy and the Comfort Classic at the Brickyard SENIOR PGA TOUR event. She also will have duties involving the Indianapolis 500 and other special events. Sommers will report to Mai Lindstrom, director of public relations for Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indy Racing League. "As the number and scope of special events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has increased, it has become apparent that increased attention needs to be paid to them, and that is Lisa's new assignment," according to Fred J. Nation, IMS vice president of corporate communications and public relations. Sommers previously served as manager of public relations for the Indy Racing League. She worked in the IMS public relations office before that assignment. Nancy Doan, IMS manager of public relations, will continue to coordinate public relations for the Indianapolis 500 and the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis.
