Mr. Lay,

I wasn't able to get my question to you at the all employee meeting. It was

The Enron sponsored Houston mini-cart Grand Prix entry placed second and
received free air time of "Enron" on the news. With NASCAR being as popular
as it is today, itself a multi-billion dollar industry, why hasn't Enron
sponsored a racing team to compete against the other Fortune 500 sponsors?
Enron is supporting stadiums, but why not a competition based on fuel,
energy, and the most powerful being the victor?

Now with cigarettes and alcohol banned from advertising, companies such as
AOL, Compaq, Southern Company, and Infoseek are on the tracks. Each race
would provide more airtime of the Enron logo and further placement of "The
New Power Company" in the retail consumer/viewer's venue. It would also give
me someone to "root" for.
