From the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County:
Rancher’s Reserve beef, a Cargill beef brand available exclusively at Safeway, is making it possible for kids at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County to experience a NASCAR Nationwide Series race for the first time at the Dover International Speedway on Sept. 29 in Dover, Del.
“Safeway and Rancher’s Reserve beef know that race time is a great way to enjoy time with friends and family,” said Sarah Hecox, brand manager, Cargill. “We are happy to provide a fun, educational activity for the kids of Harford County. It is our hope that they will learn more about racing and will remember this experience for years to come.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County consist of four locations throughout the county. Since those attending the NASCAR experience live in areas about an hour from the Speedway, Rancher’s Reserve beef is providing bus transportation to and from the race.
“At the Boys & Girls Clubs, we strive to provide healthy, safe activities for the kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs,” said Tim Wills, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Harford County. “Attending a NASCAR race, and having everything from transportation to the tickets provided, is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the kids in Harford County.”
Josh S. from the Bel Air branch said he is excited to attend the race. “I can’t wait to see how fast the cars go,“ he said.
Cargill Beef is sponsoring Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., driver of the Rancher’s Reserve No. 6 Ford Mustang, in 15 races for the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series and a Sprint Cup race. Safeway is sponsoring the Nationwide Series race on Sept. 29 and the Sprint Cup Series race on Sept. 30 in Dover, Del.
