Hometown Boy, Dane Moxlow, to Compete in Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix in Mustang Boss 302s


Detroit, Michigan (21 May 2012) - Local business owner and Grosse Ile native, Dane Moxlow, will be piloting the #48 Eaton Steel/Trenton Forging/Detroit Motion Co. Mustang Boss 302s in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix on June 2nd and 3rd.

Moxlow and his local sponsors believe in the rejuvenation of Detroit, and they're ready to show their hometown pride on the track with a hometown car. Eaton Steel, a family-run Detroit company for three generations, and Trenton Forging, a family-run downriver Detroit company for two generations, will be entertaining employees and customers trackside while showcasing the city that started out as the center of the manufacturing world. In addition, the two companies and Moxlow's own Detroit Motion Co. will be celebrating the return of the Detroit Grand Prix, the iconic race that dates back to its original Formula One days.

"Driving a race car at full-bore between buildings and through intersections is a dream come true for any being. Being able to race on the streets of my home city, in a locally built vehicle, in front of the people who built it is truly an honor. I am enamored by the 'comeback' of Detroit and being part of it is a unique experience. I cannot wait to showcase the series and vehicles to family, friends, and local businesses like Eaton Steel Bar Company, who has partnered with us for the return of this historical event. Many thanks to everyone that has made it possible to compete here," says Moxlow.

Moxlow and his sponsors feel that the return of the Detroit Grand Prix is great for the city and its residents. For more information on how to purchase tickets and be a part of this iconic and historic event, and to root for Dane Moxlow, a hometown boy in a hometown car, on June 2nd and 3rd, visit
