Herdez Competition teammates Ryan Hunter-Reay and Mario Dominguez and Walker Racing's Mario Haberfeld have all added their names to the growing list of drivers who will cycle their way around the 4.048-mile Road America circuit on the day before this year's Champ Car World Series event.

Hunter-Reay, Haberfeld and Dominguez will join Rocketsports Racing's Alex Tagliani, Forsythe Racing's Paul Tracy and a host of other personalities in the first Tour de Road America, a charity benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

The Tour de Road America brings together drivers from the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford and large contingent of fans and local cycling enthusiasts riding together to raise money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) supporting cancer survivorship.

In the weeks following Lance's bid for an amazing 6th Tour de France victory, Champ Car drivers will join a group of cyclists who have made substantial donations to the LAF and together will ride one of America's premier road course facilities, Road America, on the eve of the annual Champ Car event at the rolling four-mile circuit.

Walker driver Haberfeld, in his sophomore season in Champ Cars, pilots the #5 Cummins Diesel Reynard-Ford. Both on and off the track, Haberfeld is an accomplished athlete. He recently competed in the California Half Ironman triathlon, which counts cycling as one of its three disciplines.

Haberfeld says that Armstrong's victories against cancer and on the bike have provided inspiration.

"I got to know about Lance by reading his book It's Not About the Bike, and from that moment on I have followed his career and his battle against cancer with a lot of interest," said the Brazilian. "This is by far the best book I have ever read. It's very inspiring and really makes you think about life from a different perspective.

"It's also very motivating and I'm very impressed with Lance's determination to achieve his goals. In fact, I thought the book was so inspiring that I bought more that a dozen copies of it in the last two years to give out to friends, family and members of my team."

"I finished reading his second book a few months ago and also loved it. I'm really happy for Lance to have won so many Tour the France after his disease, and commend him on all the good work he is doing through the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I'm a big fan of his, and welcome the opportunity to contribute by participating in the Elkhart Lake bike ride."

"Lance Armstrong is an inspiration," added Hunter-Reay. "I am reading his book right now and as an athlete and human being I have an immense amount of respect for him and his foundation. I am honoured to participate in the Tour de Road America and I look forward to the opportunity to ride with the Champ Car fans at Road America in effort to support the foundation. Lance is not only an inspiration because of the victories he has achieved, but because his achievements have come through adversity, his own physical health, the
biggest adversity for an athlete."

"Lance is a hero of mine and a fine example for young people with dreams around the world," continued Dominguez. "I am really excited about the event at Road America and honoured to support the foundation."
