*I am currently working on getting my Russian racing driver Sergey Shleikin set to do a one-off
  drive with Sam Schmidt Motorsports for the Infiniti Pro race at Infineon Raceway the weekend
  of August 26-28. Sergey was born and raised in Uzbekistan (then a part of Russia). he came to
  America when he was 12 years old. He attended school here in California and classes at Delta
  College in Palo Alto.  Sergey has raced in the ESPN Russell School Racing Series and the
  Barber Dodge Pro Series. 2004 found Sergey racing in the Palmer Audi Racing Series in
  Europe. He raced at Monza, the Nurburgring, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps, garnering a
  sixth overall in the final standings.  He has spent this past season working on his interim 2005 and
  2006 program. He would like to compete in the 2006 Formula Renault UK Series and progress
  through Formula Three and GP-2 into Formula One!  As you can guess, we are currently fishing
  for the budget to do the Infineon Raceway event to gain attention for Sergey's racing efforts.  We
  believe that he will be able to attract attention as the first Russian to compete in any American
  Open Wheel Championship and because he is bi-lingual, speak to the many expatriate Russians
  and Russian-Americans living in the United States.  the race will be delayed broadcast on
  Thursday, 9/1/05, 3pm.(EDT) 12pm. (PDT) on ESPN2.  If any of you can offer help or direction
  and guidance, I would greatly appreciate it.  Time is of the Essence!  (Gil Bouffard)
