As Pocono Raceway prepares for another great weekend of NASCAR and ARCA—Lebanon based Bill Martel Racing (BMR) is planning to burn up the Tricky Triangle --- in sneakers too!
BMR is hosting “Go Pink at Pocono 2,” a benefit track walk for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC) to be held on Saturday, August 3rd following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) “Pocono Mountains 125,” which isscheduled to start at 1:00 p.m.
The walk will be led by Kyle Martel, driver of the BMR #59 “TURN4FOODS.COM” Chevrolet Silverado. Brandon Igdalsky, CEO of Pocono Raceway is scheduled to speak and help officially start “Go Pink at Pocono 2” -- which takes place approximately one hour after the race.
“BMR is inviting race fans and race teams to walk with us and help raise money for the PBCC. Our goal is to help find a cure for breast cancer now, so our daughters won’t have to. Having Brandon give the opening walk comments shows just how much Pocono Raceway is committed to the community; commented Rob Ziemba, Public Relations Manager for Bill Martel Racing.
Pocono Raceway is located in Long Pond, Pa. Registration for “Go Pink at Pocono 2” will take place at the Bill Martel Racing Tent located under the main grandstand at the start/finish line on August 3rd from 8:30 a.m. until the conclusion of the NCWTS race. The cost for the benefit walk is $10.00 or $20.00 which includes a commemorative tee shirt -- while supplies last. Walkers must also sign a waiver and wear a pink bracelet – to be provided.
“BMR will have pink highlights on both its NASCAR truck and ARCA car which will definitely stand out on the track. This is also a rare opportunity for Pocono fans to walk on a NASCAR track -- which we thank Pocono Raceway.” concluded Ziemba.
On Friday, August 2nd Kyle Martel is scheduled to drive the “HANOVERCOLDSTORAGE.NET” Chevrolet Impala in the ARCA Race Series “ModSpace 125” – presented by Menards.
Net proceeds from the walk will be donated to the PBCC. Fans may follow the race and walk action on Twitter @kyle_martel. Fans wishing to donate directly to the PBCC may do so at www.pabreastcancer.org/donate.
