“We were expecting around 120 entries, and would have been thrilled with that number,” said Church Brothers Collision Repair Co-Owner Dan Hall. “Luckily, we were prepared for more, and were absolutely delighted with the actual turnout and the amount ultimately raised for the Wounded Warrior Project.”

Every dollar from entry fees, a raffle, bottled water sales and on-site contributions was earmarked for the cause, and Church Brothers matched that amount dollar-for-dollar to bring funds raised to $11,000. A group of active duty Indiana National Guardsmen and women accepted a ceremonial check on behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project.


Former NFL player Joe Staysniak, co-host of 1070 The Fan’s Grady & Big Joe Show, served as the event’s emcee. Indianapolis Motor Speedway historian Donald Davidson appeared for a conversation about this year’s Indianapolis 500 and fan meet-and-greets. On-site exhibiting organizations included the Indiana State Police, Indiana National Guard, Indiana Pacers, Meguiars Car Products and Volunteers of America Veteran Services, among others.

“We’re going to be getting our car show committee together soon to discuss what worked well and what we can do even better,” said Hall. “We definitely will be back next year.”
