    BRIAN’S WISH
    Brian is a race fan in the St. Vincent's Hospice in Indianapolis. A grass roots effort started by his primary caregiver
    and picked up by race fans at www.trackforum.com has resulted in the Brian’s Wish program - www.brianswish.com.
    Thanks to this grassroots effort many drivers, including Eddie Cheever, Sarah Fisher and Robbie Buhl have visited Brian
    at the hospice. Also it is expected that almost every starter in the 2002 Indianapolis 500 will carry a special Brian's Wish
    decal. Brian's Wish is for an increased awareness of the disease ALS and an increased effort to finding a cure for the
    disease. Thanks to Brian and the racing community steps are being taken to make Brian's Wish come true.

    BRIAN’S WISH RUNOFFS
    Race for fast lap time in 8-kart, 20-lap heats on the 300-meter road course and 6-kart, 30-lap races on the high-speed oval.

    Spectators can make donations with 100% being donated to Brian’s Wish.

    Drivers can race for $20 per race with 50% being donated to Brian’s Wish.

    Drivers with fastest 3-laps on each track will go to the podium for an Olympic-style medal ceremony with Bronze, Silver and
    Gold medals being awarded. Spectators and drivers will have the opportunity to win prizes throughout the night.

    This event is open to the public. RACERS is an all adult facility with the minimum age being 18 years.

    Nice job, Matt. Any chance of putting pics on the brianswish site?

    This is not morbid curiosity, but I think some of us would be interested in seeing a picture of Brian - maybe one taken a couple years ago - whatever is appropriate and agreeable to Brian. I, for one, would like very much to put a face to his name.

        The policy with media is that we are not to take photos

        But he is proud of his photo with Sarah (he has one with Eddie too but likes to show off the one of him with Sarah).

        I will ask if it might be permissable to get a copy of that photo

          I hear Dave Wilson will promote this on WIBC beginning tomorrow

          And it is to be included in the IRL weekly notebook this week.

              Ok guys, I've told at least 10 people about this, including another female go kart racer. Get the word out, let's bring a herd.

                Brian's family is supposed to attend and they are putting the word out thru the ALS community.
                Also they say a number of Brian's friends from out of town are going to attend.
