Kligerman will be Sponsored by North American Power for Upcoming NHMS Nationwide Race
Concord, N.H. (July 9, 2013) - NASCAR Nationwide series driver Parker Kligerman will be racing for a worthy cause at the upcoming NASCAR Nationwide Series CNBC Prime’s “The Profit” 200 taking place at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 13. Kligerman’s sponsor, North American Power, will donate $1,000 for every lap lead - up to ten laps - to the Speedway Children's Charities with the funding directed toward CHaD, Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth and David’s House.
“I recently had the opportunity to tour CHaD’s incredible facility and meet some of the families benefitting from their great work,” said Kligerman. “I will be doing my best behind the wheel of the #77 North American Power Toyota on Saturday to raise as much money as possible to support their mission.”
“Parker is a great driver and we’re excited to sponsor him, as well as support the local community,” said Greg Breitbart, Chief Marketing Officer at North American Power. “Our company was founded on the belief of giving back to the communities we serve. Partnering with Parker is allowing us to increase giving in New Hampshire while we enjoy the sport of racing with fans and customers.”
This Friday, July 12, Speedway Children’s Charities have selected a special family to participate in “Hot Laps,” at NHMS, where Parker will take them around the track in the “Pace Car,” and give them a taste of what it’s like to be a real NASCAR driver. “We are thrilled to be able to provide this “Once in a Lifetime” experience to a family. We hope to put big smiles on their faces and help them forget about their day-to-day struggles,” said Cheryl LaPrade of Speedway Children’s Charities.
For those who want to meet Parker in person, he will be at NHMS signing autographs at North American Power’s booth on Friday from 4:30-5:00 and Sunday from 10:00-12:00.
