GALLES RACING INTERNATIONAL LOOKS TO CONTINUE TOP-10 STREAK IN PORTLAND

The Galles Racing International team enters the Budweiser/G.I. JOE'S 200 - the ninth race of the PPG Indycar World Series season - on a mission: to convert their growing momentum into a Top-5 finish.

Adrian Fernandez, driver of the #10 Tecate Beer / Quaker State Lola Mercedes-Benz looks to build upon a pair of Top-10 finishes in his last two contests; tenth place at the June 4 Miller Genuine Draft 200, and sixth place at the ITT Automotive Detroit Grand Prix held June 11.

"Portland International Raceway is a great track to pass on," explains Fernandez. "It is one of the only permanent road courses on the circuit and an extremely physical track. The competition should be strong because there's at least 15 drivers that could win this race."

At last year's Portland International Indycar event, Fernandez qualified 14th with a speed of 114.178 MPH. On race day he finished 10th scoring his fourth Top-10 finish of his Indycar career.

Fernandez will next race the Tecate Beer / Quaker State sponsored Indycar on Sunday, July 9 at the Texaco Havoline 200. The 50-lap contest will be run on the 11-turn permanent facility at Road America.

The race is slated for a 1:00 p.m. start and will be carried by ESPN at 2:00 p.m. EDT. -<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>--<o>- Lesley Ann Miller, President - Marketing 101 (614) 890-5442 fax: (614) 890-5083 mktg101@ee.net http://enet.colmicrosys.com/mktg101/index.html
