Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, Team Fastrax™ will return to Ryan field to make the Wildcats game unforgettable with their fan favorite, patriotic American Flag demonstration jump. At 6:15 PM, the Northwestern Wildcats will kick off against the No. 3 football powerhouse, Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The Wildcats are no doubt hoping to continue their 4-game win streak. To start the game off in spectacular fashion, when the National Anthem starts to play, Team Fastrax™ will jump in and deliver the game ball with their majestic 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag, the Northwestern flag and colored smoke.

TSA fireworks-licensed skydivers with specially made LED suits and projectile pyrotechnics will fly in formation, creating a dazzling display. The show will be displayed on the scoreboard with the Team’s live air-to-ground video feed, so spectators at Ryan Field can enjoy the experience on a whole new level.

“Team Fastrax™ is honored to perform our patriotic American Flag jump at such a momentous game,” commented John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™. “We’re nearing the end of the season, so every win moving forward is important.”

According to their website, The Wildcats have won each of the last two meetings versus the Fighting Irish, including a 17-15 victory on Sept. 2, 1995 and a thrilling 43-40 overtime win on Nov. 15, 2014. Notre Dame is the first top-3 opponent to visit Ryan Field since No. 1 Ohio State in 2006. The Wildcats (5-3) and Fighting Irish (8-0) will square off on in a primetime matchup in front of a nationally-televised audience on ESPN with Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge and Holly Rowe. As always, fans can listen to the broadcast with the voice of the Wildcats Dave Eanet, Ted Albrecht and Adam Hoge on WGN 720. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:15 p.m.

This performance of Team Fastrax™ is dedicated to Capt. Andrew D. Byers. For information on Capt. Andrew D. Byers, visit the Military Times website. Team Fastrax™ dedicates every performance to a local fallen hero. They may be gone but are not forgotten.
