INDIANAPOLIS, May 20, 1998 - The Inaugural Indianapolis 500 Invitational Charity Golf Tournament, scheduled for Friday, May 22, will initiate yet another tradition of Memorial Day weekend entertainment on the fabled grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Foursomes will take to the course Friday morning for a round of golf at Brickyard Crossing, the Pete Dye-designed, 18-hole championship course, for a good cause. Proceeds benefit the American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis. IMS President Tony George, driving legends Parnelli Jones and Lloyd Ruby, and many Pep Boys IRL drivers will participate. The list includes Eddie Cheever Jr., Davey Hamilton, Scott Sharp, rookies J.J. Yeley, Steve Knapp and Donnie Beechler, and others.

Before the tournament, PGA Tour member Howard Twitty will host a clinic for all tournament participants. Twitty, from Scottsdale, Ariz., has recorded three PGA Tour victories since starting his professional career in 1974.

The schedule for the inaugural Indianapolis 500 Invitational, sponsored by Reebok, is: 7 a.m.: Registration and breakfast 8 a.m.: Twitty golf clinic 8:45 a.m.: Shotgun start 2 p.m.: Awards luncheon
