Do you enjoy NASCAR truck racing? I do. The Craftsman Truck Series offers some of the best racing in NASCAR today. Would you like to change the way you watch truck racing by becoming involved personally? If so, I have something amazing to tell you about.
Our Racing Dream Motor sports, or ORD Motor sports, is a non-profit race team based out of Charlotte, NC, and debuted during the Speed Street Festival in Charlotte this past weekend on May 21 through May 23, 2009. Truck series drivers Todd Bodine and Jason White made autograph session appearances at the ORD tent for the grand opening.
Sammy Lopez, President and Director of Marketing, summed up the Speed Streets grand opening weekend to me in an e-mail today. “We had over 20 members in two days signup, and there were so many people that came to see Todd Bodine that he ran out of hero cards to sign. Right now we are up to 28 members and we are really just looking to create a fun community of race fans and go truck racing.”
How can it be your dream? ORD Motorsports Inc. is a Registered Non-Profit 501c(3) Organization whose mission is to provide the ultimate, most unique interactive adventure of a race fans’ lifetime, while acting as a primary conduit for charitable organizations by donating the paint scheme to a different charitable organization chosen by members every race weekend.
For only $25.00 your tax-deductible yearly membership fee allows you to be part of this unique racing community and donate to a great cause.
"With sponsorship struggles in NASCAR these days there couldn’t be a better time to introduce a new, unique way to bring the fans closer to an ever expanding sport," says Sammy Lopez, President and Director of Marketing of ORD.
"Not only can we tap into the heartbeat of the racing fan’s passion," adds Chris Graham, President / Director of Business Development, "but the team acts as a true conduit for charitable organizations bringing awareness and national media attention to their cause. It’s a win-win, and a great way to give back to the sport so many people enjoy."
Do you have questions about the truck team such as who will be the driver? What paint scheme and sponsor will they run? Who goes over the wall to pit the truck? Watch this video from OurRacingDream.com by Speed TV personality Krista Voda for the answers:
