Holiday Inn Indianapolis East and Damon's join Henkelman & Baca Motorsports for Indy.

CLERMONT, Ind. -- Henkelman & Baca Motorsports and the Holiday Inn East in Indianapolis have formed a marketing partnership in conjunction with the NHRA Mac Tools U. S. Nationals being held at Indianapolis Raceway Park, August 28-September 2.

The Henkelman & Baca Motorsports Mac Tools Top Fuel Dragster, part of the four-team Mac Tools Stars & Stripes Team and driven by veteran Top Fuel driver Cory McClenathan, will carry the logos of both Holiday Inn Indianapolis East and their on-site restaurant Damon's, "The Place for Ribs", throughout the event weekend.

"In the past we have been associated with IRL, Formula 1, NASCAR and Indy Car but have never had the opportunity to get involved in the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series," said Kim Green, General Manager of the Holiday Inn Indianapolis East. "When the marketing partnership with Henkelman & Baca Motorsports presented itself we knew it was an opportunity that we couldn't pass up, given the popularity of drag race in Indianapolis and across the United States. The benefit to Holiday Inn, and more importantly this property, will be the exposure to a whole new group of people. It will be a whole new experience and all the employees here are excited and looking forward to race weekend."

Team owner and partner David Baca reflected on the team's association with the Holiday Inn East of Indianapolis and Damon's, "We're excited about the involvement of both the Holiday Inn Indianapolis East and Damon's Ribs. We found not only a great place to stay but a restaurant that just happens to serve the best ribs on the planet. It doesn't get any better than that! The entire Henkelman and Baca team is looking forward to partying with our fans on Sunday night."

The party that Baca is referring to is a Fan Appreciation Party, Sunday, September 1 from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. at Damon's "The Place for Ribs" in the Holiday Inn Indianapolis East at 6990 East 21st Street In Indianapolis (Phone: 317-359-1155). Damon's will be open for business the night of the party and the public is invited to enjoy their delicious dinners after which they will have an opportunity to meet Henkelman & Baca Motorsports driver Cory McClenathan. McClenathan will be signing autographs and the entire Henkelman & Baca crew will be on hand to thank all the loyal fans attending the Mac Tools U. S. Nationals and those motorsports fans that live in and around the Indy area.
