SPEEDWAY HONORED BY LOS ANGELES BOARD OF SUPERVISORS FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE ABC7/FIREFIGHTERS' "SPARK OF LOVE" HOLIDAY PROGRAM

Irwindale, Calif. (Tuesday, February 8) - - Irwindale Speedway was honored this morning before the regular meeting of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for its participation in the annual "Spark of Love" holiday toy drive.

The Speedway was presented with a large hand-illuminated scroll, signed by all five Supervisors and which read, in part: "... With deep appreciation for your ongoing commitment to the children of Los Angeles and for your generosity, which has made the 1999 'Spark of Love' Toy Drive a complete success."

Irwindale donated over 2,000 scale model racing cars to the project which was co-sponsored by ABC7, AMC Theaters, KABC Talk Radio/KLOS/Radio Disney, Sav-On, Sony Pictures, Subway, and the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

"The Speedway was very honored to be allowed take part in this great program," said Irwindale VP/COO Robert DeFazio. "We want to especially thank our friends at the L.A. County Fire Department for helping us to bring a little spark of love some really great kids. I know that we got a whole lot out of it too!"
