INDIANAPOLIS, Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2000 - OnStar, the leader in vehicle safety, communication and information services, has become the primary sponsor of the Indy Racing League car fielded by Kelley Racing and driven by Mark Dismore, team officials announced.

GM BuyPower has become an associate sponsor on Dismore's Dallara/Aurora/Firestone.

"The OnStar system is really cool, and we're just thrilled to have them as part of Kelley Racing," Dismore said. "Our radio buttons in the cars are going to be the same as the OnStar ones in passenger cars, which creates a real similarity for fans.

"GM BuyPower is also coming on, which is a real easy and direct way of finding a new General Motors car online. I'm really excited about these high-tech, fast-paced businesses being involved in racing, as the Indy Racing League provides a high-tech marketing tool for such companies." Dismore, from Greenfield, Ind., finished third in the 1999 Indy Racing League championship standings on the strength of a win in the season finale at the Texas Motor Speedway. With the backing of the solid Kelley Racing team, Dismore is one of the top contenders for the league title this season.
