Abbott gets eighth place finish and a ton of experience

MIAMI, FL (March 6, 2005) -- Mishael Abbott, of Coral Springs, Florida drove to an eighth place finish in her first Menards Infiniti Pro Seriesa race at the Homestead 100 in Miami on Sunday. Racing with the Hemelgarn Johnson Motorsports team, Mishael completed the 1.5-mile oval of the Homestead-Miami Speedway with an average speed of 150.184 mph.

"Sure, I would like to have finished higher, but this is a great start," Mishael said about her debut in the series. " I achieved my goal to complete the race and gain as much experience as I can. The best part of the weekend was the opportunity to connect with my fans."

The weekend included scheduled and impromptu meet-n-greet opportunities to talk with fans both young and old. Mishael holds a special fondness for her young fans, taking time to chat and sign autograph cards while reminding them they can achieve anything if they never stop reaching for their dreams.

Tape-delayed television coverage of the Mishael's race in the Homestead 100 will be shown on ESPN2, Monday, March 14, at 3:00 ET.

Mishael is slated to complete five races in the Menards Infiniti Pro Series but following Homestead, the Phoenix 100 was added to her schedule. She will compete on the 1-mile oval of the Phoenix International Raceway, March 19.

Menards Infiniti Pro Series is the official support series for the Indy Racing League IndyCars Series and incubator for the racing stars of tomorrow. Mishael Abbott is pursuing her formal education at Florida Atlantic University, working toward an elementary school teaching degree, and seeking sponsorship support to complete the entire season of Menards Infiniti Pro Series.
