CARA CHARITIES TO BENEFIT FROM WALKER RACING'S GENEROSITY

CARA Charities would like to thank Walker Racing owner Derrick Walker for his most generous and creative fundraiser at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. For the historic final Champ Car race on April 20, Walker Racing will be setting aside an area on both sides of Alex Tagliani's #15 Cosworth/Bridgestone/DP01 entry especially for fan signatures.

Supporters will have the opportunity to be an actual part of the race and sign their name on the car in return for a donation to CARA Charities.

This is team owner Derrick Walker's way of saying thank you to all of the loyal fans while benefiting CARA Charities at the same time.

Derrick Walker said, "There is a great charity in CARA, who has been a big part of Champ Car through the years. By making a donation to CARA Charities, Walker Racing will run your mark during the final Champ Car race on Sunday. For those fans that will be at Long Beach come and make a donation to CARA, we would love to see you and for those that can't be there, you will be missed."

CARA Charities will be set up outside the Walker Racing transporters in the Champ Car paddock, on Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. PDT. Fans will also have the opportunity to have autographs signed and their picture taken with Alex Tagliani from 12:40- 1:00 p.m. on both days.
