GRID KIDS' EBAY AUCTION FEATURING LIZ HALLIDAY ITEMS

She's won more times than any other female in the history of the American Le Mans Series. She's finished higher at the historic Mobil 1Twelve Hours of Sebring than any female in history, surpassing greats such as Janet Guthrie and Lyn St. James. She's fighting, along with teammate Clint Field, for an outright American Le Mans Series championship in LMP2.

Liz Halliday is recognized as the world's premier female sports car driver and her quest also to become a member of the USA Olympic Equestrian team may make her the world's top two-sport female athlete. This week's Salvation Army Grid Kids auction on www.ebay.com features three autographed items by this top young talent.

Bidding for these items will be open through 10:00 p.m. EDT Monday, October 2. Opening bids will be $1,500 (racing suit); $85 (racing gloves); and $30 (baseball cap).

All proceeds from the auctions benefit the Salvation Army Grid Kids and are used to enhance centers for less advantaged young people. The Salvation Army Grid Kids is the official charity of the American Le Mans Series.

The 1,000-mile/10-hour Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda CX-7, Round 9 of the American Le Mans Series, is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. EDT on Saturday, September 30.
