STATEMENT FROM JOHN MENARD REGARDING DRIVER TONY STEWART AND THE 1999 INDIANAPOLIS 500:

"As I've said all along, we believe we have a contract with Tony to drive for Team Menard in the 1999 Indy 500. I have no desire to keep Tony from driving in the 500. We have entered a second car, intending for him to drive for us. We have a car for him that just turned the fastest practice lap (227 mph) in the IRL era at the Speedway. I am simply crushed that after all I have done for Tony to further his career that he would even thi nk of not living up to his obligations."
