Win-Tron Racing, Justin Marks and The V Foundation Team Up For "Laps That Matter"

Lakeville, MN (September 28, 2010)- Win-Tron Racing, Driver Justin Marks and Construct Corps are teaming up at the ARCA Racing Series 2010 Season Finale American 200 for "Laps That Matter", a unique charity event that will bring together one of the top organizations in the series and The V Foundation,a non-profit organization dedicated to cancer research. The team will begin gathering donations at Kansas Speedway, a little more than one week prior to the American 200 at Rockingham Speedway, and will conclude collections on event morning Saturday, October 9, 2010.

Donations can be made two different ways: any monetary amount of 25 cents or more can be pledged for each lap Justin completes in the 200 lap event, or contributors may also choose to donate one lump sum. For example, if you donate 25 cents per lap, your contribution for the completion of 200 laps will be $50.00. The final contribution to The V Foundation will be tallied up following the American 200.

Teams, drivers, sponsors, fans and anyone affiliated with the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards are invited to join Win-Tron Racing as we reach to achieve our goal of raising funds to support The V Foundation and their ongoing fight to find a cure for cancer. Founded in 1993 by ESPN and former award-winning broadcaster and NC State basketball coach Jim Valvano, The V Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for this devastating disease that claimed the life of it's founder, and has an excellent reputation within the scientific community, with 100% of all new direct cash donations and net proceeds from events like "Laps That Matter" going to cancer research and related programs.

To request a donation form or for more information, please contact Win-Tron Racing Public Relations Manager Kirby Johnson, atKirby@Win-TronRacing.comor by phone at 608.289.8919. Pledge forms need to be filled out and returned by October 8th, 2010. All donations are tax-deductible and receipts will be issued following the event.
