CHAMP CAR WORLD SERIES ANNOUNCES DRIVER PENALTIES FROM MILWAUKEE

INDIANAPOLIS (June 7, 2006) -- Champ Car World Series driver Mario Dominguez of the Forsythe Championship Racing team has been penalized seven (7) championship points after being found in violation of Champ Car Rule 6.27 in last weekend's Time Warner Cable Road Runner 225 in Milwaukee.

Champ Car Race Operations found Dominguez in violation of Rule 6.27, which concerns avoidable contact. Dominguez' penalty covers the points that he earned in Sunday's race after a 14th-place finish.

The rule states: Any driver who in the opinion of the Officials initiates avouidable contact which results in the interruption of another competitor's lap time or track position will be subject to a penalty per Chapter 10. Should the contact result in the immediate retirement of the other competitor, further penalties may be assessed. Judgmental decisions by the Officials in this regard are not subject to protest or appeal.

Dominguez has also been placed on probation for the next three (3) Champ Car events.
