Sports and Fitness Center for Persons with Disabilities to Host Special Event Prior to Race
RACEPRO TECH announced today that SpoFit, a sports and fitness center for persons with disabilities will be the team’s primary sponsor for rounds 3 & 4 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series to be held at Wild Horse Pass Raceway near Phoenix (AZ) on April 24th and 25th. A very special surprise announcement and presentation will be made by Driver/Owner Justin Peck at the SpoFit Facility on Wednesday the 22nd prior to the race weekend. In addition, RACEPRO TECH will display their Prolite Truck and ProBuggy race vehicles at the facility. The team will then host some of the SpoFit members as Honorary Pit Crew Members at the races.
“This is more than a sponsorship for me, it’s personal,” expressed Justin Peck. “My brother (Nate) became a quadriplegic after a motorcross accident. I know how much it changed his life and his family’s life. So many things we take for granted can be taken away in an instant. Finding ways to move forward are not easy, but having a place like SpoFit to keep active helps the mind, body and spirit to heal. It also provides a place to see that you are not alone and can encourage one another.”
“I’m very excited about the special surprise we have to present at the facility before the race weekend starts,” added Peck. “After our visit to the SpoFit facility, it will be an honor to have some special guests spend the weekend with our team as honorary pit crew members.”
