MILLER RACING AND LIONS CLUBS SPONSOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUTH AT THE CLEVELAND GRAND PRIX

For Immediate Release - Johnny Miller and the PLCDirect sponsored Miller Racing Team joined with Cleveland Ohio area Lions from District 13-C to provide several inner city youths an opportunity to experience first-hand the hard work and commitment that goes into professional motorsports.

Lions District Governor Bruce Beckwith and members of District 13-C purchased tickets for several youth from the Cleveland LEOS club in order to expose them to the competitiveness and positive influence of professional racing. LEOS, a program for youth sponsored by a local Lions Club, provides youth a means to develop a positive image. They receive support and guidance from their Lions Club sponsor/mentor.

SCCA Pro-Racing Vice President John Claggett provided NTB Trans-Am paddock passes for the LEOS which allowed them a closer look at the cars and stars of Trans-Am. Pro-Racing officials also provided the Lions and LEOS with an in-depth look at the inspection process that each NTB Trans-Am car must go through in order to compete.

BRUCE BECKWITH - "The kids were the focus of the entire weekend. We are sure that these were the only kids from their neighborhood that were able to attend the excitement on the Lakefront this past weekend. We are extremely proud that their involvement in LEOS was able to include this fun and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

Miller Racing adopted Lions Clubs International, the worlds largest service organization, in order to raise awareness of Lions vision and youth. Miller Racing sponsors eyeglass collections and public appearances on behalf of local Lions Clubs in each racing community. For more information on how you can help Lions Clubs International, please contact your local Lions Club.
