Cool news from Chip Ganassi Racing, as the team will pay tribute to World War II veterans at an Indy Honor Flight fundraiser this weekend. Further details are below from the team’s release:
Chip Ganassi Racing Teams will serve as the host of the second annual Indy Honor Flight fundraiser at the Indianapolis-based shop on Saturday, February 28, from 2 to 7 p.m.
The fundraiser will feature autograph sessions with current Verizon IndyCar Series drivers Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, and Charlie Kimball, as well as NHRA Top Fuel driver Richie Crampton. Visitors will also be invited to take a tour of the CGRT shop, enjoy the sounds of the “Indianapolis 500” Gordon Pipers, participate in live and silent auctions, and meet over 30 WWII veterans.
Indy Honor Flight exists to provide free transportation to America’s aging veterans so that they may visit the memorials that stand in their honor at our nation’s capital. Most of these brave men and women are not able to make such a trip on their own. For more information about the Indy Honor Flight organization, please visit their website at www.indyhonorflight.org.
Dixon and Kanaan will have autograph sessions from 2 to 3 p.m., with Kimball and Crampton from 3 to 4 p.m.
