ALEX LLOYD RELEASED FROM METHODIST HOSPITAL

INDIANAPOLIS (May 10, 2008) -- Rahal Letterman Chip Ganassi Indy Car driver Alex Lloyd (#16 Dallara/Honda/Firestone) has been discharged from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis following yesterday's accident during practice at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Lloyd, who hit the SAFER Barrier at the south end of the racetrack on Friday, was given a battery of tests after reporting neck pain and a headache after the accident. The tests were all negative, although Lloyd was kept overnight in the hospital for observation.

Lloyd has returned to his Indianapolis home and will meet with IndyCar Series physicians later in the week in order to receive medical clearance to resume participation in this year's Indianapolis 500. His #16 Rahal Letterman Chip Ganassi car is expected to return to the track on Wednesday, May 14 when practice resumes.
