TEAM GREEN LOOKING FOR MORE POTENTIAL "STARS OF THE FUTURE"

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (MAY 26, 1998) Team Green announced today their scouting program for invitations to the 1998 Team Green Academy (TGA) is in full swing. In addition to accepting resumes from potential invitees, TGA scouts are present during select race weekends evaluating talent. The American Driver Development Program was created in 1996 with the goal of guiding young American drivers to the top levels of racing with financial support and an unprecedented coaching program. The Team Green Academy, entering its third year, will be run in mid-August (preliminaries) and late September (Final Five) at the Derek Daly Performance Driving Academy on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Road Course Facilities.

"Scouting is one of the most important aspects of our program," comments Barry Green, founder of the Team Green Academy. "We examine as many different disciplines as possible during our search to give us a complete overview of the talent available."

The Team Green Academy evaluates each driver's complete skill package, including on-track ability, technical knowledge, overall speed and communication skills. This marks the earliest start date yet for the TGA and is done so with the goal of better preparing the winning driver for the 1999 race season. Previous winners of the prestigious Academy are Jeff Shafer of North Hollywood, CA (US F2000/KOOL-Toyota Atlantics), Matt Sielsky of Northbrook, IL (KOOL-Toyota Atlantics), and Alex Gurney of Newport Beach, CA (Barber Dodge Pro Series).

Interested and qualified candidates are encouraged to forward their racing resumes to:
