CONCORD, North Carolina (March 15, 2011) – – ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards driver Chad Hackenbracht has been keeping plenty busy during these past few weeks and it doesn’t appear his schedule is going to give way anytime soon.
After an appearance at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway last weekend, Hackenbracht returns to the NASCAR campaign trail with non-stop service to Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway to participate in Knoxville Food City Race Nights on March 17th signing autographs from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. local.
The next night (March 18), the 19-year old rising star will trek to Bristol Motor Speedway’s version of Food City Race Nights also signing autographs from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
During the week, Hackenbracht will also assist American Marketing Group (AMG) in learning the business of off-track sponsorship activation which includes serving sample products to consumers and also giving pit tours on race weekend for customers.
“These last couple of weeks have been a great learning experience,” said Hackenbracht, who pilots the No. 58 Tastee Chevrolet Impala SS for CGH Motorsports in ARCA. “Darlington was a lot of fun, but I’m looking forward to experiencing more on the business side too. It’s an important angle in Motorsports and I’m just thankful to everyone for allowing me to participate.”
Jordan Dahl, marketing manger for CGH Motorsports commented on his driver’s hectic schedule. “As part of Chad’s development, CGH Motorsports is focused on ensuring he understands and partakes in every aspect of racing. It will help him be more in-tune with marketing partners as well as race fans and more importantly gaining greater knowledge of the sport and of the business.” When Hackenbracht, a native of New Philadelphia, Ohio native was asked about his impending trip to “Thunder Valley” he said, “Bristol seems to be place on every race fan’s bucket list. It’s just a great short track with racing that has the tendency to become brutal. This track has a lot of history and memories for so many people. Hopefully, soon I’ll be making some of my own memories there.”
CGH Motorsports is hoping to run the full ARCA Racing Series schedule with Hackenbracht the driver of the team’s No. 58 Chevrolet Impala SS. The team’s season started at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway last month where a solid performance was overshadowed by an incident 36 laps from the end.
CGH Motorsports is actively seeking additional marketing partners for the full 2011 ARCA Racing Series schedule. Single, multi and full-season placements are available on the team’s No. 58 entries. Interested parties are urged to contact Jordan Dahl at 570.234.5449 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
