Sheltra Motorsports Team Member Presents Challenge To ARCA Teams Heading Into Pocono Raceway

LONG POND, Pennsylvania (July 30, 2008) -- - As the ARCA RE/MAX Series heads to Pocono Raceway this weekend, many people are still feeling the effects of the absence of ARCA chaplain Bill Krick who was missing in action last weekend at Berlin Raceway after successfully recovering from open-heart surgery.

With Krick expected to be on the sidelines for a majority of the second-half of the ARCA season and with limited income coming in, Sheltra Motorsports Public Relations Representative Chris Knight is stepping in and announcing a personal challenge to the other teams competing in Saturday's Pennsylvania 200 at Pocono Raceway.

For every mile that ARCA RE/MAX Series driver Patrick Sheltra completes Saturday afternoon Knight will donate $1.00 out of his personal pocket to Bill and Diana Krick. Should the Pennsylvania 200 extend into overtime, Knight will donate $2.00 for every mile completed until Sheltra takes the checkered flag.

If Sheltra is able to capture his first career ARCA RE/MAX Series victory Saturday, Knight, a longtime Motorsports Public Relations Representative will throw in an additional $200.00 bonus.

"Bill has done some many wonderful things for so many people including me," said Knight, who has been covering and working in the ARCA RE/MAX Series since 2000. "It's very unfortunate what the entire Krick family has had to endure within the last week but I want to be able to do my portion to give my thanks. While Bill's presence at the track is priceless, I know that even when he's not there, he still is, in spirits."

Knight continued, "I am challenging any members of the ARCA community whether team or sanction to match my challenge with the hopes to raise a minimum of a thousand dollars this weekend. I know that every penny counts for the Krick family and this is the best way I know how to give back quickly."

Anyone interested in joining the challenge are urged to contact Sheltra Motorsports at Knight849@aol.com.
