HOOSIER HUNDRED RETURNS TO SEPTEMBER IN 2000 INDIANAPOLIS, IN, August 9, 1999 - Dennis Woods, spokesman for the Foyt Group promotional effort, revealed today that the Hoosier Hundred has been approved by USAC to return to the Indiana State Fairgrounds on September 22, 2000. The Hoosier Hundred has fallen on hard times in recent years for a number of reasons not related to the quality of the presentation. Lately it was run in combination with the Hulman Hundred in May when more race fans are in town.

The new date precedes by two days the running of the first Formula One race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 24, 2000 and the first Formula One race in the U.S. since 1991. The Foyt Group is hopeful that the proximity will give European, South American, and Asian race fans a chance to see good old American Heartland dirt action while in the U.S.
