Introducing ARCA Angels: Inside ARCA, On Pit Row Launch Fundraising Effort

TOLEDO OH (8-22-08)--The Automobile Racing Club of America, in conjunction with Bench Racing Promotions, have announced the formation of a cause-marketing effort known as ARCA Angels. The eight-week program runs in conjunction with On Pit Row and Inside ARCA sponsored by Team GLOCK Racing, a pair of motorsports-themed radio shows that are broadcast live from the Toledo Speedway Bar and Grill every Tuesday night.

The ARCA Angels promotion has been designed so that the ARCA community can support three very distinct efforts:

* Focus Motorsports Ministries chaplain Bill Krick has recently undergone open heart surgery.

* Race car driver Terry Gibson was involved in a fatal MSA Modified accident at Toledo Speedway.

* Caleb Manuel is a Toledo Speedway fan with a severe spinal disorder.

"We are just trying to help," said Mark Gundrum, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for ARCA. "There are people who are associated with ARCA and the sport of auto racing who need help, and we have formed a small group of people who are willing to help if they can."

During the ARCA Angels promotion, On Pit Row and Inside ARCA audience members have the chance to win free food, prizes and race tickets. The Toledo Speedway Bar and Grill's weekly Tuesday night food and drink specials, including $1 cans of beer and the popular Taco Tuesday special, also remain in effect during the ARCA Angels fundraising effort.

On Pit Row can be heard every Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on WCWA-AM 1230, Toledo's Fox Sports Radio. The show is also available via live, streaming audio on www.onpitrow.com. Listen to Inside ARCA Radio sponsored by Team GLOCK Racing every Tuesday night from 7-8:30 p.m. via live streaming audio on arcaracing.com. The show is also available in the Toledo, Ohio market on WCWA-AM 1230 radio.

Each week on Inside the ARCA RE/MAX Series and Inside ARCA, hosts Charlie Turner and Steve Wronkowicz provide listeners with unparalleled ARCA content, including race winner interviews, special guests, statistics, results, news and notes. The first hour of the 90-minute program, dubbed Inside the ARCA RE/MAX Series sponsored by Team GLOCK Racing, features content exclusive to ARCA's nationally touring ARCA RE/MAX Series. An additional 30 minutes of each show is called Inside ARCA, featuring content exclusive to all other ARCA properties, including weekly ARCA-sanctioned racing at Flat Rock Speedway and Toledo Speedway and the ARCA Lincoln Welders Truck Series.

Individuals and/or companies interested in participating in the ARCA Angels program are encouraged to call Mark Gundrum at the ARCA Office (734) 847-6726, or stop by for the radio shows at the Toledo Speedway Bar and Grill on Tuesday evenings between 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
