TOLEDO OH (8-30-06) - As The Andersons ARCA Fan Fest, presented by Wolverine Boots and Shoes draws nearer, more and more activities are being added to the event.
Country Joe Racing, which fields the ARCA RE/MAX Series stock cars for rookie driver Blake Bjorklund, is sponsoring a raffle to benefit Focus Motorsports Ministries.
The Minnesota based Country Joe Racing team has donated a “Mini-Chopper” mini bike to serve as the top prize for the Focus Motorsports Ministry raffle.
"We feel very strongly about the service Bill and Diana Krick provide to the ARCA community,” commented Dick Melius, Team Manager for Country Joe Racing. “The opportunity to help him in this effort is our pleasure.”
Focus Motorsports Ministries has served the ARCA RE/MAX Series since 1996. In June 2002, the ministries primary sponsor (due to financial restraints) could no longer provide financial assistance to keep this ministry at the track, at which point Bill and Diana incorporated Focus Motorsports Ministries for the purpose of continuing to serve the ARCA community.
“We sure appreciate the support of Mr. Joe Miller. Mr. Dick Melius and the entire Country Joe Racing team,” commented Bill Krick of Focus Motorsports Ministries. “We look forward to another great Fan Fest at Toledo Speedway.”
Tickets for the raffle will be available all evening during the 2nd Annual All-ARCA Fan Fest, with the drawing scheduled to take place at around 8:00pm. The Andersons Fan fest runs from 5pm to 8pm on Thursday, August 31.
