Mishael Abbott to Compete in 50th Anniversary June Sprints®

ELKHART LAKE, WI (June 23, 2005) -- Mishael Abbott of Coral Springs, FL will be competing a Formula Mazda prepared by Racers Edge in the 50th Anniversary Kohler® / Sports Car Club of America Chicago Region June Sprints® this weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI.

Mishael has been driving for Hemelgarn Johnson Motorsports as the only female in the Indy Racing League® Menards Infiniti Pro Seriesa, competing in four events this season. A break in the Menards Infiniti Pro Series schedule allows Mishael to return to Road America where last year she won the 2004 Chicago Indoor Racing Hard Charger Award.

"I'm so excited to be back at the June Sprints this year for their 50th Anniversary," said Mishael Abbott. "We weren't sure I would be able to make it because we've been concentrating on the Menards Infiniti Pro Series but Racers Edge was able to provide me a car this weekend, allowing me to run on one of my favorite tracks. I plan to improve on my Hard Charger award from last year and finish on top."

Formula Mazda qualifying sessions are at 11:30 a.m. (CDT) on Saturday and 9:40 a.m. (CDT) on Sunday with the race scheduled for Sunday afternoon, June 26.

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.
