Team Owner John Barnes Lauds Potential IndyCar "Culture Change" with New IndyCar Design

CHICAGO, Ill. - (February 10, 2010) -- With the much-anticipated unveiling of DeltaWing's IndyCar concept Wednesday afternoon at the Chicago Auto Show, Panther Racing team owner John Barnes and Panther Racing have released the following statement to the media:

John Barnes, Panther Racing CEO & Managing Partner:

"What has been proposed today by the DeltaWing group is a new light, a new vision, an open book, and a completely different approach to our sport. Today's announcement is not as much about this car as it is a new philosophy and a much-needed culture change in the sport of open-wheel racing. This is about becoming part of the 21st Century and not living in the 20th Century. Every industry in the country is refocusing their efforts to become more efficient and it is time for the IZOD IndyCar Series to do the same.

"Our sport is one of the greatest on the planet, and in order to ensure longevity, and a bright future, it takes bold decisions by people who are fearless and unafraid of making dramatic changes. Today, possibly more so than any other time in our sport, is that time. I applaud Chip Ganassi, Ben Bowlby and everybody associated with the DeltaWing group for their forward thinking approach to our sport. This is a game-changer for us."
