I posted a week ago when Arie Jr. got into trouble, so it’s only fair that I post again when he’s doing something good. Arie Luyendk Jr., son of 2 time 500 champ Arie Luyendyk Sr., is set to visit U.S. troops across the pond.
- Firestone Indy Lights driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. will join NASCAR drivers Geoffrey Bodine and Scott Wimmer and NHRA drag racer Hillary Will on a tour of United States military bases as part of the Racing Heroes 2008 Goodwill Tour.
The tour, which begins on Dec. 9 and concludes on Dec. 20, will include visits to U.S. military bases in Iraq and Kuwait. The program focuses on raising spirits and providing inspiration to servicemen and women serving abroad.
“The drivers visit will have a tremendous impact on the troops,” said David Chavez, president of Pro Sports MVP, which organized the tour. “We are certain that the tour will be very entertaining and a welcome and needed break from the routine.”
The participants will attend autograph/photograph sessions, lead clinics and demonstrations, hold meet and greets, and visit hospital patients and staff.
“I’m looking forward to going over there and meeting the troops,” said Luyendyk, who finished fourth in Firestone Indy Lights points in 2008 with a win at Chicagoland Speedway. –Indycar.com
