Ruby Tuesday Sponsored Race Car To Make Local Restaurant Appearance

06/07/2007

MARYVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 7, 2007--Local residents will get a unique opportunity to see and photograph the race-winning number 23 Ruby Tuesday Championship Racing Team Porsche Crawford Daytona Prototype race car on Sunday, June 10 from noon to 8:00 PM at the Alcoa Ruby Tuesday across the street from the McGhee Tyson Airport.

This is the same race car that world-renown race car co-drivers Patrick Long and Jorg Bergmeister drove to victory at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in May. The Alex Job Racing-prepared Porsche Crawford is a regular front-runner in the Grand-Am Rolex Series presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve.

With the car coming straight from the Watkins Glen International race track, local residents are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity because not only is this one of a few times this year the car will make a public appearance not on a racetrack, but also because the public will get the chance to see the car before it heads to Lexington, Ohio for the Grand-Am Rolex Series Round Seven race.

For more information regarding this event, please contact Bob Castro at cuban2go@earthlink.net.
