MUNCIE, IN - Danny Sammons, a rising star on the USAR Hooters ProCup stock car series, will spend the afternoon of Friday Sept. 19 visiting with fans from 2 to 4 p.m. at Benson Motorcycles Inc. in Muncie, Ind.

The special appearance by the 19-year-old driver from Bordentown, N.J., comes in advance of the ensuing day's USAR Hooters ProCup 250 at Indiana's Winchester Speedway.

Sammons will sign autographs and visit with race fans and customers of Benson Motorcycles Inc., an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer that is sponsoring the youngster's Saturday assault on the Winchester high banks. The HeartAttack, Inc. No. 97 Ford that Sammons will drive at Winchester will also be on display.

A variety of giveaways will be offered to fans who stop by to visit Sammons at Benson Motorcycles, including Harley-Davidson, Hooters and Danny Sammons t-shirts, hats and apparel.

Sammons, in his third year of USAR competition, finished 10th in the recently-completed Hooters ProCup Northern Series points standings. He will begin pursuing the tour's national title with this Saturday's 250-lap event at Winchester, which kicks off the five-race Four Champions Challenge Series pitting drivers from USAR's North and South divisions. A $250,000 payoff awaits the overall USAR champion after the five races.

Sammons enters Saturday's action at Winchester with high hopes. He ran very well in the track's Northern Series show earlier this summer, maintaining a spot in the top five until oil from another driver's blown engine caused him to slide into the outside wall.

Benson Motorcycles Inc. is located at 6410 West McGalliard in Muncie, Ind. Steve and Phil Benson operate the always family-owned business that has been serving the area for 22 years. Two local representatives will be choosen to be honorary pit crew members on Sammons's team on Saturday at Winchester. Benson will also be displaying a 100th anniversary Harley-Davidson bike at the track.
