Team Rahal files Indianapolis 500 entry for 1999 winner Brack.

INDIANAPOLIS, Thursday, March 13, 2003 - Team Rahal filed a 2003 Indianapolis 500 entry March 13 for driver Kenny Brack, the 1999 Indianapolis 500 winner and 1998 Indy Racing League IndyCar(tm) Series champion.

Brack will drive the No. 15 Rahal/Letterman Miller Lite/Pioneer Dallara/Honda/Firestone entry for Team Rahal, which is co-owned by Bobby Rahal, the 1986 winner of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Also sharing ownership in the team is David Letterman, an Indianapolis native and host of the popular "The Late Show with David Letterman" television show.

Brack, a native of Arvika, Sweden, and resident of Upper Arlington, Ohio, has returned to fulltime IndyCar Series competition in 2003 with Team Rahal. He made his series debut in 1997 with Galles Racing and then spent the 1998 and 1999 seasons driving for four-time Indianapolis 500 winner A.J. Foyt before competing in CART from 2000-2002.

Brack won the IndyCar Series championship by a 40-point margin over Davey Hamilton in 1998. Brack then won the Indianapolis 500 for Foyt in 1999 in dramatic fashion after race leader Robby Gordon was forced to pit for fuel with less than two laps to go.

Brack returned to the Indianapolis 500 in 2002, driving for Target Chip Ganassi Racing, finishing on the lead lap in 11th place.

Ricardo Nault is the chief mechanic for the Rahal/Letterman Miller Lite/Pioneer entry, and Steve Dickson is the team manager.
