CONCORD, NC. (May 17, 2002)-- If you aren't sure which car ARCA RE/MAX driver Chase Montgomery is in, look for the huge smile on the hood.
In typical Montgomery Motorsports philanthropic form, Chase will be running the EasyCare Vehicle Contract Service 100 at Lowe's Motor Speedway today for the"Miles for Smiles" charity.
"Miles for Smiles" is fundraiser that was started four years ago by John Hall, D.D.S of Cornelius, NC. The program is a pledged donation-per-mile fundraiser that gives 100% of the proceeds to the Iredelle County (NC) Open Door Dental Clinic in Statesville. The clinic provides free dental work to the less fortunate.
"The' Miles for Smiles' campaign really appreciates the opportunity to team up with Montgomery Motorsports to help the less fortunate people of Irdelle County," Hall said.
Montgomery, a rookie of the year contender, is always willing to bring a charity on board with the team.
"I am happy to help out in any way I can," Montgomery said. "Charities are very important to me and this team, so any opportunity we get to help a good cause, we try and oblige."
Montgomery Hopes for a Victory on Graduation Day
Eighteen-year-old Chase Montgomery is missing the most important day in every high school senior's life.
Instead of walking on stage to receive his diploma with the rest of his Beech High School classmates, Montgomery will be walking down the pit lane and getting into his #27 Montgomery Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
Montgomery will miss his high school graduation ceremony tonight to race in the EasyCare Vehicle Contract Services 100.
"I went a picked up my diploma earlier this week," Montgomery said."It would have been nice to go through the ceremony with the rest of my class, but right now, racing is much more important. I've got a championship to think about. High school is over and it's time for me to concentrate on my career."
