An NFL Super Bowl/Pro Bowl player is set to meet with fans and overlook his signature owned business in Tucumcari.

The Chicago Bear’s linebacker, Brian Urlacher, will be at the Brian Urlacher Cross Country Auto Sales on South Lake Street Thursday afternoon.

Urlacher will be holding an autograph session and meeting with his fans at 1p.m. Thursday, said Tucumcari Cross Country Auto Sales manager John Everhart.

There will be Super Bowl programs available for him to sign and he will sign other memorabilia brought in by people, said Everhart.

“This is the first chance that Brian has had to come down to the dealership since he bought it in October,” said Everhart. “It is great that he is coming to visit and he looks forward to finally being able to meet and greet his fans in Tucumcari.”

Urlacher was scheduled to be in Tucumcari for a recent golf tournament that bears his name but had to attend a training camp.
Urlacher has been unable to visit the dealership due to his schedule until now, said Everhart.

The dealership in Tucumcari is one of two owned by Urlacher the other is located in his hometown of Lovington.

“Brian wants to keep his business in New Mexico,” said Everhart. “He want to show up and support his business here in Tucumcari, in his home state of New Mexico.”
