I would like you guys to take the time and check out this site and the forums.

Here are the reasons why:
1. I was selected to race in the last event this past summer and could not believe I made it. So you guys or gals out there that think you would like to race in this event, get you self reg'd on the forums and make a name for your self. They will start making their picks for the WWIII (Winged Warrior 3) event in January. I think there is some guys on here that really have a good chance! I made it last summer

2. It is a charity event for an AWESOME cause. Riley's Hospital for Kids helps tons of children everyday and the more they get the fast for kids cures and recoveries!

3. This is a big event. Meaning, there should be some great coverage and the have some big plans for the third time around.

Now I know some of you think it is impossible to maybe get picked. I did. But they have a car show as well. So why not get a group of Elantra's, or even Hyundai's to get involved in the car show. There is a lot of you guys that have some AWESOME rides and I know it would be great to see us at this event.

Well, i just wanted to pass this important information out to you guys/gals and maybe you will take the opportunity to check the site out or even join and maybe get picked to race or show.

Thanks for you time and have a good one!


O/T: To who is in charge, do you think we can make this a topic that does not get lost. I think it would be greatly appreciated if we can keep this alive with out it getting bumped all the time. Thanks for you help! :D

Official Release Information:
Winged Warrior III: Import vs. Domestic Shootout and Car Show!!!!

For Immediate Release:

To: Potential Sponsors/Vendors:
For: The Kids at Riley Hospital for Children (Indianapolis)
When: Saturday May 12, 2007
Where: O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis (formerly Indianapolis Raceway Park).

As the chill is in the air, and the Family Holidays near, we are about to put an end to 2006. For most of us, this time of year will be filled with joyous times spent with family and friends. For others, it will be times spent in the Pediatric Hospitals, watching their kids/grandkids suffering with this illness or that. It is times like that, that make me humbled and happy that I have a "healthy" family, and my heart goes out to those who are not as fortunate.

If you are unfamiliar with the Winged Warrior Shootout, it is a charity event initially put together by my wife and myself, which started as a "toy drive" at my office years ago. The sole purpose of doing this event is for helping the sick Children at Riley Hospital for Children, here in Indianapolis Indiana. It has expanded over the past three years into a "battle" of the Import vs. Domestic manufactured vehicles and performance challenge, with entrants coming in from as far away as Florida, and celebrities showing up and joining in on the fun as well!!

We are going to do some EXPANDING for next year’s event, as we ran out of room for the spectators and participants the last 2 events we held at local airport properties. Please visit the website to find out more info on the last events. We are actively pursuing celebrity racers as well, and to date, there is a strong interest in those celebrities we have contacted as wanting to participate and race in this event. For more information on these specific details…please contact us directly as we are currently firming up commitments, so the list changes weekly.

The Winged Warrior III event will be run at O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis (formerly known as Indianapolis Raceway Park). The itinerary is being constructed now, and will follow. There are many ways in which you can support the event and at the same time you will also have a link to your business four months after the event on the Winged Warrior website for increased value and exposure. The website sees over 60,000 hits per month and the event itself will see crowds in excess of 5,000 people. (Please look over the sponsor/vendor rates as they are very affordable, and the return on investment should be substantial. There will be plenty of space to display your merchandise or sell some merchandise and at the same time giving to a great cause. We also can provide you with a not-for-profit numbers at the time you decide you want help out in this great cause!! Plus you have the benefit of seeing an AWESOME competition, with an assembly of cars you normally wouldn't get to see at ONE EVENT!!
