Indianapolis, IN -- The Kele Companies will continue their sponsorship of Hemelgarn Racing and driver Buddy Lazier for the 2003 Indianapolis 500, announced team owner Ron Hemelgarn.

Kele (pronounced like "kelly" green) and Hemelgarn Racing began their racing relationship earlier this season at Phoenix International Raceway. Incidentally, Kele has been involved with racing throughout the last 12 years.

"I am very pleased to have the Kele Companies associated with a first class operation like Hemelgarn Racing and a proven winner in Buddy Lazier," said Ronnie Randall, President of Kele Companies. "Like Kele, the team is value driven and built on strong relationships."

The duo of Hemelgarn and Lazier continues to boast one of the most impressive and long-standing team on the IndyCar Series circuit. Since 1996, Lazier and his Hemelgarn team have earned eight wins, including the 1996 Indianapolis 500 victory and 39 top-10 finishes in 70 races.

"We're pleased to have another first class sponsor such as Kele," Hemelgarn said. "They have had a long association in motorsports and we are honored to have them as a part of our team."

For 20 years, Kele has been the leading supplier of commercial HVAC products. The first in the building automation industry to supply products from over 80 manufacturers, they have set the standard for personal customer service.
