SWE RACE CAR PARTS TO SPONSOR POLE AWARD

INDIANAPOLIS, Tuesday, May 10, 2005 -- SWE Race Car Parts will sponsor the Pole Award for the Indy Racing League Menards Infiniti Pro Series beginning with the Futaba Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

SWE Race Car Parts will award the fastest qualifier with a check for $1,000 and a trophy at each of the remaining 11 events in 2005.

"We are very pleased about the new dimension in our relationship with SWE," said Roger Bailey, executive director of the Menards Infiniti Pro Series. "They have been involved with us since day one. This program will not only benefit SWE and the series, but is a tremendous incentive to all of the competitors who will have the opportunity to earn additional prize money."

SWE Race Car Parts services a large percentage of the gearboxes used in the Menards Infiniti Pro Series race cars.

"I want to reward the team owners and drivers with some recognition," said Steve Eppard, president of SWE Race Car Parts. "As a development series, the Menards Infiniti Pro Series is sometimes overlooked. This might help other businesses step forward."

The trophy for the SWE Race Car Parts Pole Position Award will be on display during qualifying at each event.

The 2005 Menards Infiniti Pro Series season continues with the Futaba Freedom 100 on May 27. The race will be telecast on ESPN2 at 2 p.m. EDT on May 27.
