FOLLOWING DAVEY HAMILTON'S INDY 500 ACTIVITIES MADE EASIER

Indianapolis, IN (May 07, 2009) -- Davey Hamilton is gearing up for this year's 93rd running of the Indy 500 and his fans are as well. As Davey prepares the beautiful black and silver No. 44 Dreyer & Reinbold / Kingdom Racing Honda Dallara with HP's "Touch the Future Now" logo emblazoned on the sidepods, fans can keep up to date numerous ways this month.

You can follow the day-by-day updates on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace, plus DreyerReinbold.com, KingdomRacing.net, IndyRacingExperience.com and RaceFanRadio.com sites are also offering unique content.

"I'm working with a technology company using the Touch the Future Now campaign and it only makes sense that we would use technology to deliver our message for our sponsors", said Hamilton. "We'll have audio blogs and text blasts in addition to the traditional press releases that our team is creating for all of our fans."

Backing Hamilton for the third consecutive year is Hewlett Packard. HP is a technology company that operates in more than 170 countries around the world offering consumers a wide range of products and services from digital photography to digital entertainment and from computing to home printing.

Davey's promotion team is updating various websites and media outlets as quickly as it happens at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Kingdom Racing, Hamilton's team co-entrant this month is launching a social network for like-minded Christians to interact and connect with "faith-based" race fans as well.

Kingdom Racing founder George Del Canto said "Kingdom Racing is about winning for God's glory. Creating this social network will allow all of us who worship Christ to share His message with thousands of race fans everyday."

Weather has been a factor in keeping the teams off the track most of the week but "Fast Friday" should be a quick for the Davey Hamilton / HP team. Says team strategist, Larry Curry, "It was a good day for us as we ran the least amount of laps and I feel like we accomplished the most".

Along with Davey Hamilton, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing is fielding three other entries in the Indianapolis 500 this year with Mike Conway, John Andretti and Milka Duno. The team ran all four cars on Thursday with Davey Hamilton ending up 19th overall out of the 31 different cars on track posting a fast lap of 221.624

Davey and the HP Team will be back on track Friday between 12pm and 6pm EST as they prepare for Pole Day on Saturday. Stay in touch with him all month by utilizing any of the various media outlets mentioned above.
