DiLeo Wins Star Mazda Presented By Goodyear Opener

SEBRING, Fla. (March 19, 2004) -- Dan DiLeo opened the 2004 season for the Star Mazda Series presented by Goodyear by winning the annual series race at Sebring International Raceway.

DiLeo averaged 89.720 mph during the 16-lap chase around the 3.78-mile course at Sebring. He grabbed the lead early in the race and stayed ahead. Moses Smith was second.

Goodyear is the exclusive tire provider for the series.

DiLeo posted the fastest time in qualifying, 2 minutes, 00.02 seconds (113.38 mph). DiLeo's time was a stunning eight seconds under the pole-winning time for the 2003 race at the same track. His time would have qualified him 12th on the grid for the 12 Hours of Sebring race that was run the next day.

During the race, several teams posted their fastest laps during the closing laps of the race.
