St. Petersburg, FL (March 30, 2009) American Le Mans Series racing team Primetime Race Group and Post 911 Foundation teams up to raise awareness for the first responders, veterans and Americans who have served our nation in the aftermath of 9/11.

After the devising terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 NYPD Officer Rich Miller raised the American Flag on the antenna off of the collapsed WTC Tower 1. The flag was a symbol that American will come together and unite. The Post 911 Foundation formed to create grass roots awareness, community support, and tangible assistance for members of the Military, Government, Police, and Firefighter communities, as well as other great Americans who have answered the call to duty since the attack. Primetime Race Group will support activities such as the "Follow the Flag" initiative as its historic journey back to Ground Zero will provide a vehicle to raise awareness and inspire assistance for all of our American heroes.

Come join Primetime driver Chris Hall, the team and the Post 911 Foundation for cocktails and Hors D'oeuvre's as they gear up for the St. Petersburg Grand Prix!

"I am honored to be a part of an astonishing organization and to show my support by racing to the finish line for all the Americans who continuously fight for America. As an owner of an American-based racing team, campaigning an American-made racing car in an American racing series, supporting a foundation that continuously gives back to Americans who have spent time away from their families to fight for our country, is an ideal fit" expressed Joel Feinberg, Primetime Race Group owner and driver.

"I believe Primetime Race Group represents a true American Spirit, forged from the heart of America, the steel factories in Pennsylvania, and the union workers who make the American muscle cars that come out of Detroit. I believe this racing team can once again capture our competitive spirit and sense of national pride" comments Scott Neil, President of Post 911 Foundation & Member of the Special Operations Community

About Post 911 Foundation
While focusing on programs, such as the First Responder Memorials and grass roots Peer to Peer PTSD support initiatives, the Post 911 Foundation will also actively forge partnerships with other likeminded charitable veteran, law enforcement, and first responder organizations. The foundation believes the nation can re-capture the spirit of national unity found in the Post 9/11 moment and come together once again to promote peace, pride, and prosperity. In doing so, the foundation intends to assist those who have served our nation and may be in need, so they will be restored, renewed, and empowered to succeed.
