BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 2, 2013) – NHRA Top Fuel dragster world champion Antron Brown will join friends and fans on July 3 at the Original Master Pizza shop in Middleburg Heights, Ohio.

Brown, who will be competing July 5-7 in the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Norwalk, Ohio, will visit the pizzeria owned by his Matco Tools crew chief, Brian Corradi, and wife, Jackie Corradi. The popular restaurant is located at 15180 Bagley Road just south of the Cleveland metropolitan area.

Brian and crew chief Mark Oswald along with assistant Brad Mason and the Matco Tools crew helped Brown become the first African-American to win a major U.S. driving championship in November when they won the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series crown. Brown has won 39 NHRA event titles in his career.

A 50/50 auction to benefit the Guidestone Children’s Home of Berea will offer a grand prize of a flat-screen TV being donated by Dale Audrey Jewelers in Middleburg Heights.

The special night is open to the public and will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.

“We’ve been doing this when we get back to Ohio the past few years, and it’s a great night,” Brown said. “We get to spend time with Brian and Jackie and their family away from the track

“And we get to see a lot of our Ohio friends. And of course, we enjoy the best pizza in town … and I know good pizza because I’m from New Jersey.”
