Statement on Newman/Haas Racing's Commitment To The Champ Car World Series

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (March 19, 2004) --- The following is a statement regarding Newman/Haas Racing's plans for the 2004 racing season. The statement should be attributed to Paul Newman, co-owner of Newman/Haas Racing.

"Any rumor that Newman/Haas Racing is leaving the Champ Car World Series is a figment of somebody's imagination. We remain committed to the series and are looking forward to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach season-opener on April 18."

Newman/Haas Racing, owned by actor/race car driver Paul Newman and racing entrepreneur Carl A. Haas, is the most successful team competing in the Champ Car World Series. The team will begin their 22nd season in Champ Car competition in 2004 and will attempt to score their fifth overall title after winning 73 races and 77 pole positions.
