American Spirit Team Johansson and Merlins Energy Source announce new partnership.

Indianapolis, IN (February 21, 2003) -- American Spirit Team Johansson is pleased to announce their partnership with Merlins Energy Source, a leading natural energy drink. The partnership includes associate sponsorship for the #12 entry driven by Jimmy Vasser and the #31 entry driven by Ryan Hunter-Reay in the 2003 Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford.

"I am very excited to have Merlins Energy Source on board," commented team owner, Stefan Johansson. He continued, "I have known Tim for a long time. He, along with Sabrina have created a very progressive company and I look forward to developing a good business relationship as we go forward."

Timothy Kahn and Sabrina Champi developed Merlins Energy Source four years ago after a visit to Sweden. Merlins will make its debut in Mexico later this year, "I am really excited about our partnership with Stefan (Johansson) and American Spirit Team Johansson. CART and their focus on the NAFTA community offer a fantastic avenue for Merlins Energy Source to introduce itself to the North American market." Commented Kahn.

A natural, caffeine free energy drink, Merlins carefully balances guarana seed and ginseng root to increase mental and physical stamina. The Champ Car World Series tour is diversified in climates. Extreme temperatures coupled with the physical demands for the drivers and the crew, make Merlins Energy Source a natural choice as the official drink of American Spirit Team Johansson. "This is an extremely competitive series, both on track and off. Merlins Energy Source will offer a natural advantage for our drivers and crew," commented Johansson.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, American Spirit Team Johansson is makes its Champ Car debut this weekend at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
