MAY RESULTS COULD LEAD TO CROWN ROYAL IROC INVITES

Tinton Falls, N.J. (May 27, 2005) -- May is, arguably, one of the most notable racing months of the year in the United States. The tales of two cities -- Indianapolis and Charlotte -- engross the racing community.

The Crown Royal IROC team is among the transfixed as current and past Series drivers conjure up aspirations of claiming one of racing's crown jewel events and etching their name in the annals. It could be winning the coveted Indianapolis 500 or the Coca-Cola 600, the results of which, could lead to setting the stage for next year's Crown Royal IROC field. One is already in the record book from this past weekend's events at Lowe's Motor Speedway -- Congratulations to Mark Martin, winner of the NEXTEL All-Star Challenge.

That's $1-million down, and a Crown Royal IROC $ 1 million to go for the all-time IROC Series victory champion. The next entry in the record book will be determined at the Brickyard as the eyes of the racing world turn toward the heartland. The starting line up for the 89th INDY 500 has been finalized and one-quarter of the field has IROC credentials.
