White Castle, Unser Jr. team up for fastest hamburger.

White Castle and Al Unser Jr. have teamed up to auction off the world's fastest hamburger. The hamburger will earn its name by riding with Unser in an Indy Racing two-seater car around the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 17.

The auction begins on Monday, May 13 and fans can participate by listening to WFBQ's Bob & Tom Show from 9 to 9:20 a.m. EST. The "Fastest Hamburger" will be auctioned off that morning along with 5 spots on the honorary pit crew.

The person bidding the most money towards the fastest hamburger will get to ride in the two-seater with Unser and the fastest hamburger on May 17 at 9 a.m. Crew members will receive a Kelley Racing polo shirt and hat, White Castle ball caps, hamburgers and collectable Al Unser Jr. cups and will be in the pits during the two-seater ride. Proceeds from the May 13 auction will go towards Cure Autism Now.

On Tuesday, May 14, from 9 to 9:20 a.m. EST the helmet worn by Unser during the fastest hamburger ride will be on the auction block along with 5 more spots on the honorary pit crew. Monies raised by Tuesday's auction will go towards the Al Unser Jr. Children's Charities, which raises funds for children who are homeless or are in need of assistance due to illness or abuse.

Cure Autism Now (CAN) is a charitable non-profit Hollywood-based foundation dedicated solely to finding an effective biological treatment, prevention and cure for autism and related disorders. It is a neurological disease and is not rare. It is the third most common developmental disability following mental retardation and cerebral palsy and affects one in every 250 to 500 births. It is even more common than multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis or childhood cancer.

White Castle is based in Columbus, Ohio, and operates 358 restaurants in eleven states. The company was founded in Wichita, Kansas in 1921, and was the first fast-food hamburger chain.
