Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
On July 18, 2007, the Company completed agreements and arrangements to satisfy its outstanding indebtedness, including $1,860,000 principal amount of secured convertible debentures, to Cornell Capital Partners, LP/Montgomery Equity Partners, Ltd. ("Cornell"). Under the terms of a previously entered letter of agreement, the Company paid to Cornell a total of $1,800,000 and 13,000,000 shares of its common stock and issued to Cornell a four-year warrant to purchase a total of 5,000,000 of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of $.03. The 13,000,000 shares are being maintained in escrow, and the Company has agreed to purchase or have other parties purchase these shares for a total of $400,000 on or before October 1, 2007. If the entire purchase price is not received by that date, Cornell will retain the 13,000,000 shares. The Company also has an assignable right to purchase some or all of the warrant by December 31, 2007 for a price equal to the number of shares underlying the warrant times the difference between $.03 and the volume weighted average of the Company's common stock with a minimum purchase price per share of $.03. The Company has also provided Cornell with piggyback registration rights with regard to the shares underlying the warrant. The issuance of the warrant was exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933. In connection with the satisfaction of the Cornell obligations, Cornell has agreed to release all liens regarding the property and assets of the Company and its subsidiaries.
In connection with the satisfaction of the Cornell obligations and to provide the Company with working capital, the Company has issued and assigned an aggregate of $2,200,000 in securities to various investors from May 1 through July 20, 2007. In exchange for $1,250,000 from the Black Diamond Fund, LLLP, the Company issued a $1,250,000 promissory note. The note matures on February 8, 2008 and bears interest at the rate of 16% per annum compounded daily. In addition, Black Diamond was assigned $400,000 principal amount of the Cornell debentures convertible into 16,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Company at a conversion rate of $0.025 per share. These obligations are secured by either a primary or secondary lien in the Company's assets excluding those assets owned by its Fittipaldi Carriers subsidiary. Black Diamond also received, in escrow, 100,000 shares of Series I Preferred Stock convertible into 50,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company. One-half of these preferred shares will be released to the Company from escrow upon payment to Cornell of $400,000 for the 13,000,000 escrowed shares. The remainder of these preferred shares will be released to the Company upon full repayment of the note and interest by the maturity date or, if not repaid by then, 5,000 shares will be released to Black Diamond commencing on the due date and on each monthly anniversary thereafter if the note and interest have not been repaid in full by such dates.
In exchange for $350,000, one accredited investor who also owns in excess of 10% of the Company's common stock, was issued a $350,000 promissory note as well as the assignment of $140,000 of Cornell debentures which on June 20, 2007 were converted into 5,600,000 of common stock. The maturity date for the note is January 15, 2008 and interest is payable at the rate of 16% per annum, payable at maturity in cash or stock at the Company's discretion. Furthermore, prior to August 31, 2007, the investor may convert the note and accrued interest thereon into shares of the Company's common stock at a conversion rate of $0.041666 per share. The note is secured by either a primary or secondary lien in the Company's assets excluding those assets owned by its Fittipaldi Carriers subsidiary.
In exchange for $600,000, six investors were assigned $600,000 principal amount of Cornell debentures on the following terms: the Cornell debentures will have an extended maturity date to January 15, 2008; interest is payable at the rate of 16% per annum payable at maturity in cash or stock at the Company's discretion; conversion price to be fixed at $0.025 per share allowing conversion into an aggregate of 24,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock; and secured by either a primary or secondary lien in the Company's assets excluding those assets owned by its Fittipaldi Carriers subsidiary.
All of the investors in the separate financings were accredited investors, some of whom are existing investors in the Company. All of the purchasers had access to appropriate information pertaining to the Company. Accordingly, the issuance or assignment of the securities was exempt from registration under either Section 4(2) or Section 4(1) of the Securities Act of 1933.

Cornell Capital Partners, LP
101 Hudson Street, Suite 3700
Jersey City, New Jersey 07302
Attention: Troy Rillo, Esq.
Supplementing the letter agreement between Cornell Capital Partners, LP/Montgomery Equity Partners, Ltd. (collectively, "Cornell Capital") and Fittipaldi Logistics, Inc. ("Fittipaldi") dated January 17, 2007, and to finalize an amicable resolution and settlement with Cornell Capital, we agree to the following:
1. On or before July 14, 2007, Fittipaldi will irrevocably and unconditionally pay to Cornell Capital a total of $1.8 million and issue to Cornell a 4-year warrant to purchase a total of 5 million shares of Fittipaldi's common stock for an exercise price of $0.03 per share (the "Warrant") in satisfaction of all obligations under the Debentures and related charges owing to Cornell Capital. The Warrant will have cashless exercise provisions to the extent that the common stock underlying the Warrant is not registered with the SEC. In addition, the 13 million common shares and the Warrant which Fittipaldi agreed to issue to Cornell Capital are subject to Sections 2 & 3 below.
2. Fittipaldi will purchase or arrange for the purchase of the 13 million shares described above for a purchase price of $400,000 to be paid on or before October 1, 2007 (for purposes of clarity, the payment of $400,000 pursuant to this Section 2 is in addition to the $1.8 million set forth in Section1 hereof). The shares will be maintained in escrow with Schneider Weinberger & Beilly LLP pending payment of the $400,000 to Cornell Capital. No shares will be disbursed from escrow until Cornell has irrevocably and unconditionally received a total of $400,000. In the event that Cornell has not received the full $400,000 by October 1, 2007, then all 13.0 million shares will be disbursed by the escrow agent to Cornell and Cornell shall be free to dispose of such shares in any manner it so elects and shall be entitled to retain any and all proceeds from such disposition. Cornell shall have no obligation to Fittipaldi or any other party for the disposal of such shares even if the proceeds from such disposal (when combined with any partial cash payments) are in excess of the $400,000 set forth herein. Promptly after October 1, 2007, if Cornell has not received the full $400,000 payment set forth herein, the escrow agent shall disburse to Cornell the 13.0 million shares (and appropriate stock powers with medallion guarantees and legal opinions to remove any restrictive legends). In such event, the escrow agent and the Company's transfer agent are under strict, irrevocable instructions to promptly follow the instructions herein, and neither Fittipaldi nor anyone acting on behalf of Fittipaldi (either now or in the future) shall object to such disbursement and subsequent disposal by Cornell or provide contrary instructions to the escrow agent or transfer agent.
3. Fittipaldi shall have an assignable right to purchase some or all of the Warrant by December 31, 2007 for a price equal to the number of shares underlying the warrant being purchased times the difference between $0.03 and the volume weighted average of Fittipaldi's common stock (as determined by Bloomberg) for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date the warrant is purchased ("Avg Price") (i.e., if Avg Price = $0.06 per share then
the purchase price for 5 million shares = [$0.06 - $0.03] x 5 million shares = $150,000). In any such calculations, the Avg Price shall not be less than $0.06 per share.
4. Upon remittance of the $1.8 million payment to Cornell Capital, the latter will promptly authorize Fittipaldi to file UCC-3 Termination Statements to release any and all security interests held by Cornell in Fittipaldi or its subsidiaries.
5. As may be required or desired, the parties agree to exchange general releases either at the completion of the $1.8 million payment, excepting the provisions above regarding the purchase of the 13 million shares, or at the time of full payment for the 13 million common shares.
If the foregoing terms and conditions described above are satisfactory, please sign as indicated below. We look forward to an expeditious and successful closing of these transactions.

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, Fittipaldi Logistics, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the "Maker"), promises to pay to the order of The Black Diamond Fund, LLLP (the "Holder"), a Minnesota Limited Partnershp having a place of business at 3346 Commercial Avenue, Northbrook, Illinois 60062, or such address as the Holder may from time to time designate in writing to the Maker, the principal sum of One Million Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($1,250,000) with interest on the unpaid balance as hereinafter provided.
Interest on this Note at the rate of 16.0% per annum, compounded daily, shall accrue and be payable on the Maturity Date as hereinafter defined.
The principal amount of this Note and all accrued but unpaid interest shall be due and payable on the nine-month anniversary of the date of issuance of the Note (the "Maturity Date"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Maker may prepay up to all the principal amount of this Note and all accrued but unpaid interest at any time without incurring any penalty.
The following shall constitute "Events of Default" under this Note:
1. The Maker fails to make the payment required by this Note within 15 days of its due date.
2. The Maker becomes insolvent or unable to pay its debts as they mature or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or any proceeding is instituted by or against the Maker alleging that the Maker is insolvent or unable to pay its debts as they mature, and any such proceeding, if involuntary, is not dismissed or stayed on appeal or otherwise within 30 days.
Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Note together with accrued but unpaid interest thereon, shall at once become due and payable without requiring notice by the Holder. Failure to provide notice shall not constitute a waiver of this right. From the date of the Event of Default, interest shall accrue at a rate of the lesser of 32% per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, compounded daily. Additionally, there shall be a monthly Default Administrative Fee equal to 5,000 shares of the Maker's Series I preferred stock ("Preferred Stock") held by the Escrow Agent due on the date of the Event of Default and every 30 days thereafter until full repayment of all amounts due under this Note.

It is the intent of the parties that in no event shall the amount of interest due or payment in the nature of interest payable hereunder exceed the maximum rate of interest permitted by applicable law, as may be in effect from time-to-time, and in the event the amount of interest due or payable hereunder exceeds such maximum rate, interest shall be reduced to the maximum amount that is permitted by applicable law and the payment of any such excess shall be deemed to be a prepayment of principal.
This Note shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to conflict of laws principles thereof. The Maker hereby consents to the jurisdiction of the courts located in Cook County, Illinois, as the exclusive forum to resolve any disputes arising out of this Note.

The Maker agrees to pay or reimburse the Holder and any other holder hereof of all costs and expenses of preparing, seeking advice in regard to, enforcing, and preserving its rights under this Note or any guarantee, document or instrument executed in the connection herewith (including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs and reasonable time charges of attorneys who may be employees of the Holder, whether in or out of court, in original or appellate proceedings or in bankruptcy.)
Except as provided in this Note, presentment, protest, notice, notice of dishonor, demand for payment, notice of protest and notice of non-payment are hereby waived.
The failure or delay by the Holder of this Note in exercising any of his rights hereunder in any instance shall not constitute a waiver thereof in that or any other instance. The Holder of this Note may not waive any of its rights, except in an instrument in writing signed by the Holder.
This Note may not be amended except in a writing signed by the Maker.
