Fantasy of Flight Signs on as Presenting Sponsor of the Miracle Toyota Formula One® Shootout and Miss Budweiser Exhibition

(Winter Haven, Florida) - The World's Greatest Aircraft Collection, Fantasy of Flight, announced today that they will be the Official Presenting Sponsor of the Miracle Toyota Formula One Shootout. The Laughlin Formula One® P.R.O.P. Tour presented by Bud Light is back after last fall's drought conditions to host its final race of their season at Cypress Gardens, Florida, on October 5-6. The name of the event will be the Miracle Toyota Formula One® Shootout Presented by Fantasy of Flight

"Fantasy of Flight is not only the Official Presenting Sponsor, they will also be performing aerial displays throughout the weekend with their Grumman Duck amphibious aircraft," said Bart Garbrecht, President of the P.R.O.P. Tour. "Their involvement brings our event to new levels. This is only the second year of hosting this event and between the aerial exhibition, the Miss Budweiser exhibition and the finale for the Formula One series to crown their champion, it should make quite an impact on the city of Winter Haven."

"We are extremely excited to be on board with Bart and the P.R.O.P. tour," said Jesse Douthit, Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of Fantasy of Flight. "This is a first class event and fits very well with our operating philosophy."
