The Columbus Town Meeting will feature another stellar lineup that will include team owner Bobby Rahal and Toyota Atlantic driver Danica Patrick from Hilliard, Ohio-based Team Rahal. CART Vice-President of Racing Operations John Lopes and CART Champ Car rookie points leader Sebastien Bourdais of Newman/Haas Racing will also join fans with SPEED Channel's Calvin Fish serving as the host for the evening.

The meeting will take place at the Scarlet Ballroom of the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe, located near the Ohio State University campus at 1421 Olentangy River Rd. The doors will open at 6 p.m. with the 90-minute forum to begin at 7 p.m. The meeting comes in advance of the CART Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio which runs August 8-10 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
