INDIANAPOLIS (July 14, 2003) -- Buckeye State race fans will get a chance to talk to one of the most veteran team owners anywhere in racing Tuesday night as Walker Racing owner Derrick Walker joins the lineup in Columbus for Tuesday's CART Champ Car Town Meeting. Walker has owned his own team in the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford since 1991 amassing four wins and 10 poles.

The Columbus Town Meeting will feature a stellar lineup that will include Walker along with team owner Bobby Rahal and Toyota Atlantic driver Danica Patrick from Hilliard, Ohio-based Team Rahal. Rahal will be joining the gathering via a phone hookup as he will be unable to attend because of business commitments. CART Vice-President of Racing Operations John Lopes and CART Champ Car rookie points leader Sebastien Bourdais of Newman/Haas Racing will also join fans with SPEED Channel's Calvin Fish serving as the host for the evening.

The meeting will take place at the Scarlet Ballroom of the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe, located near the Ohio State University campus at 1421 Olentangy River Rd. The doors will open at 6 p.m. with the 90-minute forum to begin at 7 p.m. The meeting comes in advance of the CART Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio which runs August 8-10 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Fans can still register for free tickets to the Town Meeting by applying at the official website of the CART Champ Car World Series, www.champcarworldseries.com.
