Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Levi Brown, linebacker Arthur Moats, wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt and nose tackle Torell Troup participated in the IZOD Street Party on July 15th and joined in on the Pit Stop Challenge to help promote the IZOD IndyCar Series in Toronto this past weekend.

There were two Canadian drivers in the race, Alex Tagliani and Paul Tracy. Their pit crews participated in the Pit Stop Challenge where they competed for bragging rights to be the fastest Canadian out of the pits.

Torell Troup and Levi Brown teamed up with Tagliani while Naaman Roosevelt and Arthur Moats were on Tracy's crew. The player's role in the Pit Stop Challenge was to push the cars from the starting line into the designated square where the pit crew could switch out the tires. They then were to push the car to the finish line.

The time was separated into three sections; the time it took to get into the square, the time it took for the pit crew to switch out the tires, and the time it took for the car to get from the square to the finish line.

Troup and Brown came out on top with Tagliani in a two-out-of-three series win.

In addition to competing in the challenge, the Bills players took photos with IZOD IndyCar series and NASCAR race driver Danica Patrick and IndyCar legend Helio Castroneves.

The actual race on Sunday ended when Will Power overtook pole sitter Justin Johnson on a late race re-start for his fourth IZOD IndyCar series win of 2010. Patrick finished in sixth place and Castroneves finished 24th. Canadian drivers Tracy and Tagliani finished 13th and 17th respectively.

The players were in Toronto to help promote the upcoming Bills vs. Colts preseason game on August 19 and the Bills vs. Bears regular season contest on November 7 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. For more information on the Bills Toronto Series visit www.billsintoronto.com.
