VOTE FOR ALEX TAGLIANI in The CHAMP CAR - MCI Most Popular CART Champ Car Driver Sweepstakes and Support the Muscular Dystrophy Association

For the fifth consecutive season, fans of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford can show their allegiances to Alex Tagliani, their favorite driver, by voting for the MCI Most Popular Driver Award - and by doing so are automatically entered into a sweepstakes where one lucky fan will win a trip to present the award to Tagliani at the 2003 CART Champ Car Awards Banquet.

The voting takes place through October 11 and recognizes the fan's choice as the most popular driver in the series, with the winner earning a trophy as well as a check for $25,000 that will be donated to their favorite charity. Alex Tagliani has named the Muscular Dystrophy Association as his charity of choice for the $25,000 donation.

Tagliani has supported the efforts of the Muscular Dystrophy Association through his involvement in fundraising events, such as a cycling marathon in Sherbrooke, Quebec on August 19, 2003. He made a personal commitment to the cause after meeting a young race fan with a neuromuscular condition two years ago and has maintained a friendship with the youngster ever since. The shy nine year old was Tagliani's special guest this year in Montreal and in Fontana, 2002.

In addition to helping the Muscular Dystrophy Association through Tagliani's donation, the contest also gives one fan a chance to attend the season-ending 500-mile race at California Speedway as well as the series awards banquet in Palm Springs, California where the winning fan will join Tagliani on stage to present the MCI Most Popular Driver Award. Once the award winner is determined, every fan that voted for that driver will be entered into a random drawing with one Grand Prize Winner selected.

MCI, which serves as the Official Internet Service Provider, Official Local, Long Distance and Prepaid Telephone Service and Official Prepaid Calling Card Company of the Champ Car World Series, is in its fifth year of sponsoring the Most Popular Driver Award.
