GALLES RACING, FERNANDEZ SET TO GO 500 MILES AT INDY

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Fueled by a Top-10 finish in their most recent outing in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, the members of the Galles Racing International Indy Car team are eager to contest the Indianapolis 500 on May 28 at the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Adrian Fernandez, driver of the #10 Tecate Beer / Quaker State Mercedes-Benz Lola, is out to finish a job that he wasn't able to complete last year. "The Indy 500 was very frustrating," explains Fernandez. "During qualifying I blew the valve and had to settle for the 26th starting position. On race day, my car was beautiful until I ran over some debris from an earlier accident and was forced to retire on lap 30."

This year, Fernandez is better prepared. He has a number of races behind him and returns with a team that is no stranger to Victory Lane.

"Adrian's development as an Indy Car driver is really coming along. He is much better equipped to handle the demands of a 500 mile race than even a year ago," said Owen Snyder, Team Manager.

"My entire approach going into the month of May will be different," explains Fernandez. "I have more experience and the pressure will be easier, which will allow me to enjoy Indy more. The fans are the greatest fans in auto racing which makes it all worthwhile."

Qualifying for the 79th running of the Indianapolis 500 will take place on May 13-14 and 20-21. The race is slated for an 11:00 a.m. start on Sunday, May 28. ABC will telecast the race live.
