FedEx Championship Series Banquet Set for November 2 in Los Angeles

(August 24, 1998) -- The 1998 Championship Auto Racing Teams FedEx Championship Series Awards Banquet is scheduled for Monday, November 2 in Los Angeles.

The season-ending event is on the evening after the November 1 Marlboro 500 Presented by Toyota at California Speedway. The Banquet will be conducted in the main ballroom of the Century Plaza Hotel - as it was following the 1997 season - in the Beverly Hills area northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

The Banquet is highlighted by the awarding of year-end PPG prize money to the top 10 finishers in the series, including the $1 million prize to the driver who wins the PPG Cup. Currently, defending PPG Cup champion Alex Zanardi holds a 206-126 lead in the series standings with five races to go. The next FedEx Championship Series race is Molson Indy Vancouver on September 6.

CART officials are working on additional details regarding the black tie event and will be announcing more information on the event soon.
