NHRA STARS TO BOWL FOR RILEY HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN MAY 19 IN BROWNSBURG
BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 7, 2009) - Indianapolis-area bowling enthusiasts will have a rare opportunity to bowl with 14 NHRA stars and raise money for Riley Hospital for Children on Tuesday, May 19, at Brownsburg Bowl in Brownsburg, Ind. NAPA AUTO PARTS and Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) are organizing the event on behalf of Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
DSR drivers Ron Capps, Tony Schumacher and Cory McClenathan will be joined by Antron Brown, Morgan Lucas, Cruz Pedregon, Tommy Johnson Jr., Melanie Troxel, Andrew Hines, Eddie Krawiec and Shawn Langdon.
Drivers will rotate lanes so every bowler can share a lane with a different driver for each of three games.
"These drivers are fierce rivals on the track," said Bob Wildt, Sales Manager for the NAPA Indianapolis Distribution Center, "but they were all quick to volunteer their time for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children. We hope NHRA fans will come out and join us for an exciting evening."
Registration is currently available to the first 28 four-person teams. Single bowlers may also register to bowl on a team. Non-bowlers may watch for free and participate in the silent auction and various drawings.
For a $25 fee, fans may buy a VIP All Access Pass which includes admission into the VIP Lounge along with the participating drivers.
The winning team will receive trophies, NHRA U.S. Nationals reserved seat tickets and DSR hospitality passes for Saturday, Sept. 5, at Indianapolis Raceway Park.
Helmets, team shirts, die-cast models and framed artwork are among the prizes for the auction. Additional door prizes will be awarded throughout the evening.
"DSR has raised over $50,000 for Riley Hospital for Children at our annual Open House over the past three years," said Mike Lewis, DSR's Sr. Vice President. "We are excited to go bowling with NAPA AUTO PARTS, NHRA fans and a great lineup of NHRA drivers, all of whom share our support for the miracle workers who provide hope and inspiration to the kids and families at Riley Hospital for Children."
