Championship Auto Racing Auxiliary (CARA) Charities has a special event planned in conjunction with the Indy Racing League's second visit to California Speedway this September 18-21.

"Raceway Rendezvous" will kick off the IRL Toyota Indy 400 weekend with the inaugural fund-raising CARA event to be held in the exclusive California Speedway IRL hospitality area on Thursday, September 18th.

With a theme of "Cruising Down Route 66" so close to the famous road's terminus in nearby Santa Monica, CARA Charities will offer fans an opportunity to sample delicacies prepared by Indy Racing League hospitality chefs at their rolling restaurants, which will be transformed into eateries such as those you'd find along Route 66.

The "Cruisine" road trip ends at the main "Diner" for a 1950s style dinner spread, with roller skating waitresses and a soda fountain for dessert.

Entertainment will be provided by local party band Captain Cardiac & the Coronaries, with a planned guest appearance from #15 Pioneer/Miller Lite Dallara/Honda driver Kenny Brack's seven-person band, Kenny Brack and the Subwoofers.

Attendees are welcome to dance to such familiar 50s tunes as "Born to be Wild," "Respect", "Great Balls of Fire", "Let's Twist Again" and many, many more familiar songs.

There will, of course, be special guests at Cruising Down Route 66. Drivers will compete to see who has sufficient air to blow the biggest bubble.

We'll find out who is as cool as James Dean, who has sufficient hip action to keep a hula hoop going. Bets can be placed on these endeavors to benefit the Special Olympics of Southern California (SOSC) and CARA Charities.

This will be an exclusive affair and only limited individual tickets - at $100 - are available. Reserved tables for ten are available and include acknowledgement in the event program and sponsorship packages can be had.

Interested? To reserve your spot on Thursday, August 18th at Raceway Rendezvous' Cruising Down Route 66 extravaganza on the California Speedway grounds, contact SOSC at 310.215.8380, extension 104 or CARA Charities at 317.299.2277.

It should be a lot of fun!
