Full Weekend For Della Penna

Portland, OR - The Della Penna Motorsports team has a full weekend of activity scheduled in conjunction with this weekend's Budweiser/G.I. Joe's 200 Presented by Texaco/Havoline. Budweiser is the primary sponsor of the Champ Car driven by Richie Hearn (Budweiser/Ralphs Swift Ford) in the FedEx Championship Series. Della Penna's weekend activities will include a pit stop challenge against the Kmart/Texaco/Havoline team of Michael Andretti (Kmart/Texaco/Havoline Swift Ford) on Thursday afternoon following the media luncheon.

On Saturday, Portland residents Larry and Julie Camp will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with the Della Penna team. The Camps were married on June 20, 1973 and are members of the Della Penna Motorsports Fan Club.

Della Penna Motorsports will also play host to an honorary pit crew member during Sunday's race, with the grand prize winner to be drawn by Hearn Friday at a local G.I. Joe's retail store. In addition, Hearn will have a special guest on board this weekend, as a decal of "Louie the Lizard" from Budweiser's popular television advertising campaign will be featured on Hearn's Champ Car. Hearn hopes to help Louie "earn his first podium finish" Sunday afternoon.
