    Jeff Belskus        EVP Administration & Operations               
    Bill Donaldson        EVP Marketing & Sales                       
    Curtis Brighton        VP & General Counsel                       
    Leo Mehl                VP & Executive Director of the Indy Racing League 
    Fred Nation                VP Corporate Communications                    
                                                                
Only Mehl and Nation are new to the IMS family. Mehl retired in 1996    
from Goodyears where he was in charge of that company's world wide      
racing operations. Nation most recently was press secretary to Indiana  
Governor Evan Bayh.                                                     
Jack Long was highly praised in the official release and George         
indicated the IRL hopes to work with Long in the future. Further        
details in the IMS official release. Len in Indy
