As if the Carb Night Burger Bash at 96th Street Steakburgers (details here) isn’t going to be enough fun, Curt Cavin has now added an auction to benefit both St. Joseph's Institute for the Deaf and Mooresville Christian Academy. Among the items up for bid at 7:30pm:
Autographed Tony Kanaan uniform from his second-place finish last month at Kansas Speedway, IndyCar Series helmet signed by many of the drivers (including Danica Patrick), framed Dancing With the Stars poster signed by Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough; two Indy Racing League two-seater rides (sold separately), autographed race car parts and autographed Scott Dixon helmet visor.
Also, I should have some race car parts that have been involved in crashes this month -- autographed, of course.
Which make me wonder – how much you think a AJ Foyt IV autographed buckeye cover would go for? Hmm.
As I said before, your humble host will definitely be there attempting to eat a fine steakburger at this shindig, although I’m guessing there’s going to be more than a few people waiting in line to do the same this Friday.
“...you must understand that when the CNBB first became a discussion item, I didn't think 20 people would show up. Even now, I'll be surprised if there are more than 100 people.”
100? Pffft. IndyCar fans can do better than that. Be there, and be sure to walk up to Cavin and shout “SURPRISE!” when you show up for the festivities.
