Nascar Day Telethon Participation Encouraged

May 06, 2008 // Franchising.com // Racing Limos President Bryan Pease is encoraging all Racing Limos operators and their guests to participate in the NASCAR Day Telethon 2008.

Fans will have a chance on May 18 to speak with their favorite drivers, celebrate NASCAR Day and make a donation to a charitable cause of their choice. The Foundation has brought together Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck series drivers to help answer phones as part of the first ever event.

Sirius Satellite Radio will go live from the telethon all day long. SPEED will do live cut-ins throughout the day and NASCAR.com will stream SIRIUS' broadcasts as well as provide original video content on their homepage all day long.

"This event is a great opportunity for those in the business and fans of racing to give back to the sport they love," said Pease.

By calling 1-888-May18th (1-888-629-1884) on NASCAR Day and making a donation, fans will be helping the 30-plus driver, team and track charities that the Foundation supports year round. Any fan who mentions his or her favorite driver or NASCAR charity will have 100 percent of that donation go directly to their designated charity.

The drivers who are scheduled to participate include Greg Biffle, Ward Burton, Brendan Gaughan, Jeff Gordon, Robby Gordon, Ernie Irvan, Dale Jarrett, Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, Ryan Newman and Elliott and Hermie Sadler.

Each person who pledges at least $25 will automatically become a Friend of the Foundation and will receive a 2007 NASCAR Day lapel pin. The first 100 people to pledge $100 to their favorite driver charity will receive an incentive item. For the driver who has the most callers and raises the most funds in their name, the NASCAR Foundation will match, up to $10,000, the funds raised during the NASCAR Day telethon.
