Join MotoGP Stars in Saying Farewell to Colin Edwards

This weekend's Red Bull Indianapolis GP will be Colin Edwards' final MotoGP race on American soil, and to commemorate the occasion, Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., invites you to join a special "Farewell To The Texas Tornado" live event Saturday evening on the center stage at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The celebration begins at approximately 5:30 PM EST Saturday.

"This is going to be a special evening that's sure to bring lots of laughs, along with possibly a few tears of emotion, as we look back at the racing career of one of Yamaha's most popular and colorful legends," commented Bob Starr, General Manager of National Communications for Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. "Colin has been part of our Yamaha family for nearly a quarter of a century, and we're proud to host this celebration in his honor."

Joining Colin up on stage will be a whole host of MotoGP stars, including Yamaha riders Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Pol Espargaro, and Bradley Smith. Also joining the celebration will be Yamaha Motor Racing Managing Director Lin Jarvis; motojournalist, author, and motorcycle racing broadcaster Julian Ryder, as well as many other surprise guests. The celebration will include a retrospective of Colin's career--both on track and off--and Colin will undoubtedly have his famous T-shirt cannon loaded up with swag that he will launch to the lucky fans in attendance.

As an added bonus, the winning bidder of Colin's personally autographed racing gear will be invited up on stage during the event to accept his prize package from the man himself.
