Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
Joe Cain and Tyler Maddox Simms have announced a promotional collaboration between Panther Racing and Maddox Entertainment at the Indy Car Weekend MATV World Championships on September 14th and 15th at the Auto Club Speedway, in Fontana, CA.
Panther Racing’s #4 Indy Car, driven by JR Hildebrand, will feature decals for two films: Who’s Watching the Kids, coming soon, on the rear wing, and Beverly Barrio, in pre-production, on the front wings. Tyler Maddox Simms is the writer/director for Who’s Watching the Kids, staring Lavell Crawford, Elise Neal, Karen Malina White and Malik Barnhardt. Beverly Barrio, written by Tyler Maddox Simms, Lorin McCraley and Edward Cieplinski is scheduled to feature Wayne Lopez, Lorenzo Lamas, Vivica Fox, and Manny Streetz.
“I am delighted to introduce my films to the IndyCar audience,” explained Tyler Maddox Simms. “Since I produce entertainment primarily for the urban audience, this collaboration might seem a bit unusual. In fact, auto racing in general, and Indy racing in particular, has a growingly diverse fan base.”
“Tyler’s films are great, positive family entertainment, and so is IndyCar racing,” continued Joe Cain. “We loved the rags to riches story of Beverly Barrio and also the kid-centered adventure of Who’s Watching the Kids. It is not an accident that our IndyCar season wraps up in Southern California, the center of the entertainment universe. We have great fans here and we wanted to do something special for them while generating excitement for Maddox Entertainment.”
