Sure the race this week is in Kentucky, but there is good news for folks who live a hop, skip and a jump across the Ohio River in beautiful Cincinnati. Three of the IRL's most popular drivers will be promoting their high speed extravaganza near your hometown in the coming weeks.

Danica! will greet 250 lucky fans during an autograph session to be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Meijer store located at 4990 Houston Rd. in Florence, Kentucky on August 11th. Priority wristbands will be distributed at the store beginning at 4:00 p.m and attendees will be limited to one autograph. How about signing a box of twinkies?

Boulder Sam will throw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday, August 10th at 12:35 p.m. Expect his pitch to be significantly less than 220 miles per hour. (I know, yuck yuck yuck.) No word on if he will be signing autographs while hanging at Great American Ball Park.

The Fisher Queen will visit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center patients in two activity centers on behalf of the Racing For Kids charity August 11th beginning at 10:00 a.m. Please don’t pretend to be a sick child to get her autograph (I’m talking to you, Pressdog!)

In related news, we still have not heard if Ed Carpenter George will appear anywhere or if he’s still working on his housing repairs.

    Seriously, I would never do that. I would just stake out the hospital and wait for her to come out, at least until security dragged me away.
