KINGDOM RACING DRIVERS VISIT SHELTERS FOR KIDS

Indianapolis, IN (May 13, 2009) -- On Tuesday afternoon, Kingdom Racing drivers Brandon Wagner and Logan Gomez visited two Indianapolis shelters who provide free tutoring services and educational advocacy to homeless children.

"The School on Wheels is Indianapolis' answer to increasing educational opportunities for school-aged homeless children in order to create economic opportunities necessary to break the cycle of homelessness," said Janet Youngblood Hiatt, Vice President of Development.

Both Wagner and Gomez, drivers in the Firestone Indy Lights are working towards qualifying for next weeks Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They posed for pictures, answered dozens of questions, signed autographs and even ate cake with the kids ranging from first graders to your high schoolers.

"It was great to see these kids eyes light up when we walked into the room(s)", said Brandon Wagner, driver of the #32 Kingdom Racing entry. "With our mission to deliver God's word to one million men through motorsports, it was truly rewarding to include these kids."

For Logan Gomez, he is still in hopes of securing a full time ride for the remainder of the 2009 season including next Friday's 40 lap event. Logan has been working with Brandon on race set-ups while patiently awaiting the financial backing to appear. "The kids that we visited today have come from such an unfortunate situation. It was great to deliver a message of faith and see their reaction to us sharing our stories as they loved hanging with us."

For the second year in a row, Houston-based Kingdom Racing is helping Davey Hamilton locate partners to help spread "Gods Word Through Motorsports". This year, Kingdom has added Hamilton's Indy Lights team as a part of the mission. Kingdom Racing founder George Del Canto said, "Kingdom Racing is about winning for God's glory. Creating a social network of motorsports enthusiasts will allow all of us who worship Christ to share His message with thousands of race fans everyday."

Davey Hamilton is piloting the No. 44 Dreyer & Reinbold / Kingdom Racing Honda Dallara sponsored by Hewlett Packard. The HP "Touch the Future Now" team will be back on track Thursday between 12pm and 6pm EST as they prepare for the 93rd running of the Indy 500.

The Firestone Indy Lights return the track next Thursday, May 21 and race on "Carb Day", Friday, May 22nd. Stay in touch with Davey, Brandon and Logan all month by logging in at www.KingdomRacing.ning.com
