Roshfrans Joins "Super Mario" Dominguez and Team Forsythe
HOUSTON, Texas -- May 13, 2006 -- Forsythe Championship Racing is pleased to announce a renewal of its relationship with Roshfrans, Mexico's premium brand of lubricants, for three events beginning with today's Grand Prix of Houston, continuing at the Tecate Grand Prix of Monterrey Presented by Roshfrans (Mexico) May 19-21 and culminating at the season finale, the Telmex/Tecate Grand Prix of Mexico City, November 10-12. At these three events, Roshfrans will sponsor the #7 Pride of Mexico/INDECK entry driven by Mexican star Mario Dominguez, who cemented his nickname of "Super Mario" this weekend in Houston when he stormed to a dominating Bridgestone Pole Position on an extremely challenging 1.69-mile temporary road course laid out on the grounds of Reliant Stadium and the Astrodome. Roshfrans is also a member of the Champ Car family as the Official Lubricant of the Series and the Rookie of the Year Award Sponsor.

"It's an honor to once again wear the colors of Roshfrans! Last year we were together for the race in Mexico City and it looked like we were going to reward their partnership with a podium finish. Unfortunately I was taken out by another driver near the end of the race so I'm looking forward to starting tonight's race with Roshfrans back on board. The team has done a great job this weekend and I managed to grab the first Pole of my Champ Car career, so hopefully we can give Roshfrans a win here in Houston to celebrate our new partnership."
Jerry Forsythe - Owner -- Forsythe Championship Racing
"We're very proud that Roshfrans has chosen to join us once again for our assault on the Vanderbilt Cup, the ultimate prize of the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford. Roshfrans is a tremendous partner and a proud Mexican company which fits in perfectly with our Pride of Mexico campaign, we couldn't have asked for a better scenario than to see Mario claim his first career pole on the same day that our partnership was cemented. We look forward to putting the Roshfrans name in front of millions of Champ Car fans here in North America and showcase the motoring performance that Roshfrans stands for."
Sergio Platonoff - Commercial Vice President -- Comercial Roshfrans, S.A. de C.V.
"Motorsports has always been a very important marketing platform for our company. We develop high performance premium lubricant products and there's no better way to showcase their potential than in Champ Car. The timing couldn't have been better; we are very excited to be part of the Forsythe Team and "Super Mario" and what better way to celebrate our partnership than with a Pole Position!
