Graham Rahal Foundation Announces Inaugural Helmet Design Contest
Graham Rahal Foundation to auction off helmet after final IndyCar race
Indianapolis, IN – Service Central Chip Ganassi Racing driver Graham Rahal announced today that the Graham Rahal Foundation will be holding a helmet design contest. Fans will have access to a pre-made helmet template where a unique design can be created. The rules and template are available online at GrahamRahalFoundation.org. Designs must be submitted from July 18, 2012 to August 8, 2012 in accordance with the official contest rules.
At the conclusion of the submission period, Rahal will select the top five designs and post them on GrahamRahalFoundation.org. Fans will then be able to vote for the winning helmet design from August 8, 2012 to August 15, 2012. When voting concludes, the design receiving the most votes will be painted by Art Rotondo (ArtRotondo.com), who provides the art work for all of Rahal’s helmets. Rahal will then wear the helmet during the pivotal IZOD IndyCar Series finale at the Autoclub Speedway in Fontana, California on September 15, 2012.
Following the race, the Graham Rahal Foundation will auction the helmet at Celebrity.eBay.com to raise money for both of its charities, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer and SeriousFun Children’s Network.
