Tony Stewart Racing’s USAC Team Ready to Defend Title
Jones, Hines Lead TSR into USAC Benevolent Fund Charity Go-Karting Event

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 15, 2007) – Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) is geared up to defend its title as the reigning champion in the 11th Annual “Fun at Fastimes” endurance go-kart race Saturday (Feb. 17). The green flag is scheduled to drop at 1 p.m. EST for the three-hour event at the Fastimes Indoor Karting facility in Indianapolis. All proceeds benefit USAC Benevolent Foundation, which provides assistance to USAC drivers and families in need of emergency financial assistance.

TSR’s effort will be led by co-captains Levi Jones and Tracy Hines, along with eight other members of the TSR USAC team. In 2006, TSR posted the closest finish in event history, defeating second-place Team Querry by a margin of 10 seconds. Last year’s team included TSR’s Jones, crew members Adam Barth, John Sayne and Jack Stephenson, former TSR driver Josh Wise and co-captain Johnny Parsons. Stephenson, Sayne and Barth are again committed to this year’s event, as are crew members Marty Williams, Chris Ferrari and Bobby Barth. Wise will also join TSR’s effort for this Saturday’s event as a special guest.

Registration for the 11th Annual “Fun at Fastimes” endurance go-karting event begins at 11:30 a.m. EST, with mandatory drivers meeting and team pictures at 12:45 p.m. The event will feature 10 teams consisting of two USAC race drivers and eight race crew or race fans.

Members of the winning team will receive medals and a special team award, four practice sessions for the price of two at Fastimes Indoor Karting, and a team photo. All participants will receive the practice session discount and a team photo.

Fastimes Indoor Karting is located at 3455 Harper Road in Indianapolis. The facility is located on the southeast corner of 96th Street and North Keystone Avenue, one block north of the North Keystone exit from I-465, next to Woodland Bowl. For more information regarding the 11th Annual “Fun at Fastimes” event, contact Bill Marvel at 859-749-0646.

The race benefactor, the USAC Benevolent Foundation, has been in existence since 1956 and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in its 51-year existence. The foundation assists USAC drivers, their families and other members of USAC when a time of need arises.

Good luck to the title defenders. I used to go karting quite often but am unfortunately not able to go any longer.
