Statement from Eddie Cheever Jr. on contract dispute with Tomas Scheckter

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (October 24, 2002) - A statement from Eddie Cheever Jr., owner of Red Bull Cheever Racing, in response to the Oct. 23 announcement that Chip Ganassi Racing will field Tomas Scheckter in the 2003 Indy Racing League Championship:

"I am disappointed to hear that Tomas may have signed with another IRL team. Tomas drove for us in 2002 on assignment from TWR Group, which currently holds his contract. TWR Group has recently exercised its option, pursuant to their agreement with Tomas, to retain his services as a driver in 2003. In response to this recent announcement, TWR is consulting their legal advisors and intends to pursue all remedies available to them."
