INDIANAPOLIS (September 23, 2003) - As rookie teams in the Champ Car World Series, American Spirit Team Johansson, Mi-Jack Conquest Racing and Rocketsports Racing have had a few moments in the bright sun this year, but this weekend's Grand Prix Americas Presented by Sportsbook.com will see that sun temporarily enhanced by the bright lights of Hollywood.

The teams will play key roles in the episode of the popular CBS crime-solving drama CSI: Miami that is to be filmed at this weekend's Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford event in Miami, an episode that will be centered around a crime involving a crew member that takes place at the race track.

American Spirit Team Johansson will be the featured team with the #12 Ford-Cosworth/Reynard/Bridgestone serving as the mount for the main character in the show. The plot encompasses the American Spirit team as the CSI: Miami detectives use their skills to determine who committed the crime. The Mi-Jack/Conquest squad will also participate in a pit-stop segment that will provide a key element to the show while the Rocketsports Racing team will also be featured in the show.

Other footage shot in and around the race track and paddock areas may incorporate the other teams and drivers of the Champ Car World Series for the episode that is slated to air in mid-November.
