Press Release: Brownsburg Chamber of Commerce announces its fifth annual Motorsports Celebration

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

The Brownsburg Chamber of Commerce announced that it will host its fifth annual Motorsports Celebration on Saturday, May 21st at 5:30 p.m. at Bill Estes Ford, 450 E. Northfield Dr. in Brownsburg. The event, which raises funds for the organization throughout the year, will feature a catered dinner by Green Street Pub, a cash bar, classic and race cars on display, a fundraiser auction and a pinewood derby race. The event is open to the public (ages 21 and older). Last year’s event raised about $5,000 for the Brownsburg Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets to the Motorsports Celebration are $25 ($30 admission on the day of
the event), and include admission to the event, buffet dinner and pinewood
derby kit (optional). The chamber encourages residents and businesses to
participate by purchasing a ticket to attend, sponsoring or donating an
auction item for the event. This year’s auction currently features around 50
items, including sports and events tickets, autographed racing items, cash,
gift cards and business services.

The pinewood derby race provides an opportunity for individuals or
businesses to build and brand their own model cars, which will be on display
prior to the race. Entrants can then race their cars during the event on a
custom-built track, complete with a laser finish line and projection screen
showing heats and team name. Overall winners and design winners will receive
awards as well as publicity after the event. Last year’s winning cars are
not allowed to enter again.

To purchase tickets and/or pick up car kits, visit the Brownsburg Chamber of
Commerce offices at 61 N. Green St., Brownsburg, between 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
weekdays up until the day before the event. For details on design and rules
