Team Full Throttle and Driver Chris Young Team Up with rock CAN roll® in a 'Race' to 'Beat Hunger' August 11th at Lowe's Motor Speedway
TEAM FULL THROTTLE, in conjunction with Kyle Beattie Racing and Speedway Children's Charities has teamed up with ROCK CAN ROLL®, a not for profit hunger relief organization, and they are racing to beat hunger! The team is asking all race teams and "FANS to bring CANS", or any Healthy and Nutritious non-perishable food donation, to the final round of the Summer Shootout at the LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY on Tuesday, August 11, 2009.
Cans and donations will be accepted at the Speedway Children's Charities booth in the concourse area of the main grandstand, and in Kyle Beattie Racing's pit stall located in turn one in the Nationwide Series garage area.
Chris Young, 15, a racer who is teamed with all three organizations this season, is spearheading the effort on rock CAN roll's behalf. "Team Full Throttle provides driver coaching for me as well as marketing and representation, and Kyle Beattie and his team maintain my race car that I am racing at Lowe's for this series. I am really excited that they are helping me team up with Speedway Children's Charities and rock CAN roll to help fight hunger in the greater Charlotte area," said Young.
Founded by Aimée Holtzman , rock CAN roll, Inc®., is a volunteer, 501c3, non-profit, hunger relief organization and think tank whose mission is to be a source that CAN continually restock the shelves of emergency food agencies across the country.
Rock CAN roll collaborates with rock concerts, events, schools, corporations, and private individuals to collect canned and non-perishable food (and basic provisions) for distribution to local agencies and into the hands of children, seniors and families who live with hunger and poverty.
The rock CAN roll organization is always looking for new collaborators, volunteers, supporters and friends to help in this quest to beat hunger.
