* Foyt Walks "The Line"  --  The Harrah's Racing Team will sport dual paint schemes during Memorial Day weekend, at the Indianapolis 500 (IRL) and the CARQUEST Auto Parts 300 (Busch Series).  The eye-catching yellow cars will display graphics promoting the DVD-release of "Behind Enemy Lines."  Foyt unveiled the car Tuesday night with the help of Tom Arnold & Company on FOX Sports Net's "Best Damn Sports Show, Period."  A sweepstakes in conjunction with the release will reward two lucky race fans with the chance to be Honorary Crew Member for the Harrah's Racing Team of their choice.  Contestants can enter at www.behindenemylines.com, www.foxhome.com and www.fox.com until Friday, May 10. 

* Randy Travis  --  Recording artist Randy Travis will be featured on the hood of the No. 14 Harrah's Chevrolet at California Speedway this weekend.  The country music star's appearance celebrates two days of sold-out shows at the Harrah's -- Lake Tahoe concert venue.

* Special Delivery  --  After running in the Auto Club 300 at California Speedway, Larry Foyt will travel to the Harrah's - Reno (NV) property on Monday for a press conference supporting Meals on Wheels of America.  Foyt will be joined by Meals on Wheels Chairman & CEO Phil Satre and Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn when he takes his Harrah's Chevrolet on a run through the streets of Reno to deliver meals to seniors.

Larry Foyt--  "Big, smooth, wide, fast tracks like California have always been high on my list of places to race.  The speedway has long, curved straightaways where you can build up a lot of momentum; however, you still need to hustle the car into the corner and exit strong to make the most of that run.  I'm excited because we're bringing my favorite car -- "12."  It's the same car that we qualified 5th with at Michigan (another two-mile track) as a rookie.  Our goal has been to take our performance from last year to the next level, so we have pretty high expectations."
